Picture yourself snorkelling over magical reef gardens where the coral is pristine and the water is stunningly clear! Snorkeling Cairns Great Barrier Reef is a trip of a lifetime, so do it with the experts.
Tusa Dive have a selection of 16 unique dive and snorkel locations for you to explore. While the divers explore the walls and depths, you'll be gliding over the reef tops, mesmerised by the vivid colours of the fish as they dart in and out of the corals and anemones.
You'll be provided with top diver' quality masks and snorkels, booties and fins. Wetsuits, and/or lycra suits are provided for all, depending on the season, and for those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, our noodles', or snorkel vests will help to keep you safely above the coral.
Our dedicated snorkel guide will teach you the best snorkeling techniques for viewing the spectacular coral gardens. Enjoy the freedom of snorkeling with your buddy or join our free guided snorkeling tour. The snorkeling is straight off the back of our boat, with the reef never more than a short swim away.
