    Destination Information


    Queensland is full of exciting areas to explore, where you can have new adventures and make lasting memories. Bask in the sun along the seemingly endless coastline, go trekking through the vast expanse of the outback, and go for a hike through the luscious rainforest that sweeps along the coast.

    Dive and snorkel along the biggest coral reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef, and take time out to explore the tropical islands that dot this natural wonder. You won’t be short of things to do in this glorious state.

    Deep Sea Divers Den - OceanQuest

    Deep Sea Divers Den offers Great Barrier Reef Snorkel and Dive Tours out of Cairns. The 5 Star PADI Instructor Development Centre operates  1 – 4  day trips aboard their purpose-built vessel OceanQuest.  The 35 metre catamaran has 18 twin and 4 double cabins with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. There’s plenty of room to spread out on OceanQuest over three decks with a spacious dive deck, large open sundecks and hot, fresh water showers. All delicious meals are prepared by the onboard chef, including hearty breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Enjoy a well-deserved dessert treat after your day in the water!

    The Great Barrier Reef trips are truly a remarkable adventure. With more than 14 permanent moorings at Saxon and Norman reefs, and selected sights at Hastings Reef, snorkellers and divers of all levels can explore the reef and its diverse marine life from early morning to night.

    During the months of June and July, four-day, four-night Minke whale expeditions operate. Expeditions are open to both snorkellers and divers, with whale interactions strictly controlled. Dwarf Minke whales grow up to 8 metres (26 feet) long, and a closeup encounter with these majestic 6-tonne creatures is an experience you will never forget.

    Minkes often approach snorkellers, divers and boats, so there is every chance to see them close up. The success rate for close sightings over the peak season is over 90%, and your interaction with the whales could last two hours or more!
