cairns and surroundings

Dive in Paradise

Cairns is surrounded by the oldest rainforest in the world on one side (where we run our freedive courses), and largest living organisms on the planet on the other.

Tourists flock from all over the world, all year round to visit and see the outdoor natural beauty that lies waiting to be explored and adored.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, supporting an extraordinary diversity of life including many vulnerable or endangered species.

More than 1,500 fish species live on the reef; including the clownfish, Maori Wrasse, Manta Rays, Cuttlefish and six of the seven species of Sea Turtle!

Explore the Great Barrier Reef

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is an underwater adventure just waiting to be explored by snorkelers, freed divers and scuba divers.

The Great Barrier Reef – Australia’s most prized of possessions, attracts over 2 million people each year to its shores, who want the chance to not only see, but be submerged into one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
