How much time do you need to leave after diving before flying?
You can fly to Cairns then dive the Great Barrier reef the next day, but PADI standards recommend leaving at least 24 hours between your last dive and flying.

Do you have to be able to swim to snorkel in Cairns?
Snorkeling in Cairns is great for beginners, but you should be able to swim a little or at the very least tread water. Snorkeling is a great way to build up your confidence and can help make you more comfortable in open water using the flotation devices provided.

Is all scuba diving equipment included in Cairns liveaboard boats?
Absolutely, all equipment is included on your overnight reef trip. You need just bring your swimsuit and a small overnight bag and you’re set!

What is Great Barrier reef tax?
Reef tax or EMC (Environmental Management Charge) goes to the Australian government for the preservation of the Great Barrier reef. Operators will collect this as you arrive on board so be sure to have
yours ready.

Do you provide stinger suits on overnight boats from Cairns?
Stinger suits are available, often included but sometimes for a small additional rental fee. The jellyfish season in the Great Barrier reef runs from November-May. Outside of these dates you do not need stinger suits.

Can I hire prescription goggles on a Great Barrier reef trip?
Absolutely, there are often prescription goggles available on these overnight/liveaboard reef trips, but stocks are limited and some of our operators only include minus prescriptions.
