Itinerary

Dive Boat Departure Cairns

A shuttle will pick you up  from your Cairns city accommodation in the morning to take you to the dive centre where the last of the paperwork will be finalised.

Any luggage you’d rather not bring on board will be stored here after check in.

Just make sure what you bring on board the dive boat is minimal and in a soft bag for easy storage.

You’ll be taken to the Cairns Marlin Marina where you will board our transfer boat which also doubles as the day trip vessel for your first day on the Great Barrier Reef.

Bring all your luggage on this boat for transfer later to your livaboard dive boat on the reef.

When it’s time to transfer to your liveaboard dive boat mid-afternoon, the crew will help you with your luggage just like concierge in a land based hotel.

Your first Great Barrier Reef tour experience for the day is only a 90 minute-ride away.

During this time all scuba divers – both certified and introductory – will receive their safety and procedures briefing.
