Moore Reef is one of the most popular dive locations out of Cairns. Well know for sites such as 5 Ways, Wild Side, East Timor and West Timor. You can expect to see Giant clams, Coral Trout, Bat fish and Moorish Idols (Gill from Nemo) in the lagoonal areas and big pelagics, turtles and sharks on the outer edge wall dives.
Moore Reef is a large U shaped mid reef off Cairns, offering good protection in variable winds and is well known for a diverse range of coral species such as Mushroom, Brain, Finger, Staghorn, and Honeycomb coral. As the name suggests, 5 Ways provides the diver an exciting adventure through a series of swim throughs. This provides excellent photographic opportunities with cathedrals of light cascading through the water column.
Be sure to keep an eye out for playful dolphins and breaching whales while sailing out to Thetford reef.
