Itinerary

Our Great Barrier Reef Dive Locations

Cod Hole

Here, you will begin your first experience, diving with the giant Potato Cod at this world-renowned dive site Cod Hole. Dive with fish as almost as big as the scuba divers.  The puppy friendly Maori Wrasse and the curious Potato Cod will be your dive buddies of a different kind.

Snake Pit

Olive Sea snakes are the draw card for your next site, the Snake Pit. These gentle creatures will investigate you as you enjoy the beautiful coral formations. Don’t worry, they aren’t dangerous and there is no known fatalities of any divers being bitten by these gentle creatures, they aren’t aggressive and you can just watch them going about their everyday business. 

Challenger Bay

Located on the Ribbon Reefs north of Cairns this scenic sandy bay is a dotted with small bommies (coral outcrops) and stunning coral gardens.  Whilst diving you can marvel at the fish being cleaned at the plethora of cleaning stations dotted at this site. You’ll be amazed to see them all queuing in a line to be the next one. 

See Sweetlips, Triggerfish, Coral Cod, Coral Trout, Rock Cod and Angelfish all waiting their turn. At Challenger Bay you’ll see schooling fish congregating and it is common to see Barracuda, Humphead Parrotfish and Snappers. 

This is an amazing dive site where you can also see Stingrays, Reef Sharks, Cuttlefish, Maori Wrasse, Nudibranchs, moray eels and colonies of garden eels.

Fairy Grotto

This is indeed a magical experience as you dive the plummeting reef walls, small caverns and swim-throughs that are interspersed throughout this amazing dive located at the great Osprey Reef.  This is a dive site that will wow you with its topographical formations and is a true wonderland for divers.

Admiralty Anchor

Is a thrilling dive site located on the western point of Osprey Reef. It will thrill you with its large sea life. The site is known for its large coral bommies that intersperse this dive site.  The gaps between these make for some great diving as you can swim between them in the natural made gullies and canyons.

Giant black coral trees, feathery corals, golden fans and red whips are just some of the coral types inhabiting the area. Sharks and schooling fish like Barracudas, Trevally, Parrotfish and Dog-toothed Tuna will thrill you as you swim amongst them.  Watch the Garden Eels waving hypnotically on the sandy bottom.

False Entrance

A large divide in the reef is the gap that gives the dive site this name.  A large U-shaped gully descends to a depth of 30 m from the reef lagoon area.  From the gully floor there are a large selection of bommies that rise up, making this dive site topographically interesting and highly dramatic.

False Entrance creates great photo opportunities with its colourful coral fans and whips as well as schooling Big Eye Trevally and Barracudas. In the cooler months Hammerhead Sharks are known to cruise by.

North Horn - Dive With Sharks

Will be your final dive stops. North Horn creates a lasting memory to take home, as you scuba dive with Sharks, witnessing upwards of 30 Sharks milling around above your head in this well-known shark spotting place. This is a dive that will get your heart pumping!
