• Introductory and Helmet Scuba Diving: If this is your first experience diving, you could not have picked a better place than the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Working with beginners is a specialty, so you can rest assured that there’s no one better experienced or more qualified than us to take you under the ocean bed. Our introductory dives require no prior experience. We will instruct you on all the essentials to give you the underwater experience of your lifetime. Of course, for your own safety, you’ll need to be older than 12 years and some people with medical conditions may be excluded.

• Get a bird’s eye view of the Great Barrier Reef with Introductory Scenic Helicopter flights available through the day. You can also climb to 3000 feet to view the islands, while you slowly spiral downward with the Vertical Heli Adventure. Enjoy the display of diverse corals and marine life at the Great Barrier Reef with the 30-Minute Reef Scenic Heli Flight.
