The Dive Boat

Our dive boat is 53 feet long and includes four 300 horsepower supercharged engines producing a quick safe expedition to your dive location.

We further equipped the vessel with specialised fold-down stairs at the bow of the boat. This makes entering and disembarking from the water very easy.

We offer certified divers the opportunity to dive not once but twice in one day! - Certified Divers must have current dive licence, Open Water or above

Please note a medical questionnaire must be filled out before diving, if you answer yes to any of the questions then you will be required to get a scuba diving medical before diving.

It is best to check before you book - please click here - if you answer yes to any questions please visit a doctor to get a medical certificate

Introductory Diving

Introductory diving is where guests without diving certification can experience scuba diving under the supervision of a qualified diving instructor.

Introductory scuba diving experiences introduce visitors to recreational diving to discover if they enjoy the sport and prefer to achieve a diving licence in the future.

Aqua 5 has some of the highest standards possible to its clients wishing to try an introductory dive.

Our experienced Dive instructors will provide you a one-on-one session.

This standard is the highest in the diving industry, so you know you will be in safe hands.

The total activity time is one hour, this includes half an hour instruction on the boat and in the water and then a half an hour dive.

Please note you do need to know how to swim, all of our instructors are trained in helping but we don’t provide swimming lessons.

The dive site we go to is great for beginners as its off a beach. 

Intro divers will start diving at waist depth before gradually get deeper to around 4 to 5 metres.

Certified Divers

We accept certified divers from all the major international diving accreditation companies (PADI, SSI ETC), from open water and upwards you are required to bring your diving documentation with you on the tour. (if you show up for the tour without verification of certification, you will have to take an introduction dive)

We check all certified divers on their capabilities before they dive.

The dive instructor has the final say on who can dive and how you buddy up, based on assessment, certification, medical conditions, etc.

Diving the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is a listed World Heritage Site, stretching for over 2000 km adjacent to the east coast of Queensland, Australia.

As the earth’s largest reef structure, you have the chance of meeting manta rays, turtles, sharks, sea-snakes, clownfish, cuttlefish and an abundance of tropical reef fish.

The Whitsunday Islands are incorporated in the Great Barrier Reef Park and have the benefit of more soft corals and caves around the islands, establishing this an aquatic playground for all scuba diving levels.
