Advanced Guided Dive and Snorkel Tour
Our advanced guided dive and snorkel tour offers guests with their open water dive certification, or who are experienced and confident snorkellers, the chance to travel further afield on one of our high speed sports vessels to explore inner and outer reef systems. Locations will be chosen based on prevailing weather and tide conditions to maximise your underwater adventure.
The Whitsundays offer easy access to some of the best coral reefs the Great Barrier Reef has to offer and delivers a stunning, colourful, underwater world of coral and marine-life unlike any other.
With ideal water temperatures all year round and a huge biodiversity of species and habitats makes this one of the most complex natural systems on Earth.
The Great Barrier Reef is home to more than 1,500 species of fish, 411 types of hard coral, one-third of the world's soft corals, 134 species of sharks and rays, six of the world's seven species of threatened marine turtles, and more than 30 species of marine mammals, including the vulnerable dugong.
At both the inner reef and outer reef you'll find an abundance tropical fish species, colourful coral reefs, a variety of sea stars, sea cucumbers & urchins, giant clams and turtles to keep you amused for hours.
For certified divers the group is escorted by a guide in a small group - usually no more than 4-6 people to ensure that you get the most out of your dive on the Great Barrier Reef! Whether you are a newly certified diver, or an experienced diver with hundreds of dives to your name, our aim is to show you the very best of the Great Barrier Reef. During the tour you will have the opportunity to dive at two different reef locations.
Our advanced dive and snorkel tour is only suitable to snorkellers who are experienced and confident in the water. Please keep this in mind when choosing your tour.
