About Divers Den - Cairns

Welcome to Cairns, home of the Great Barrier Reef!

Divers Den Cairns

Experience a magical day or night on the Great Barrier Reef with Divers Den. Whether you’re a snorkeller, first time diver or certified diver, discover the marine wonderland of the outer Great Barrier Reef, just a 90-minute boat trip from Cairns.

Our day trip departs from Cairns on our newest vessel, AquaQuest and includes five hours at the reef and visits two stunning dive sites. These are expertly chosen from our exclusive moorings on the Norman, Saxon and Hastings reefs to bring you the best quality conditions and diverse marine life, from colourful corals to inquisitive Nemos, turtles, stingrays and giant Maori Wrasse.

If just one day at the reef isn’t enough to curb your appetite for the ocean, an overnight trip from Cairns on our Liveaboard vessel, OceanQuest gives you all the time you need. Visit our colourful dive and snorkel sites during the day, and at night everything from our 'Sharks in the Dark' activity to night diving, air conditioned cabins with en suites, lounge and bar, are designed for your comfort and enjoyment. We offer daily transfers from Cairns to OceanQuest.

Our vessels are purpose built for diving and snorkelling. Spacious dive decks and a sunken platform offering easy access to the water, plus state of the art equipment. Enjoy our large sun decks, air conditioned indoor spaces and hot fresh water showers. Meals are fully catered for offering a pre-packed lunch on AquaQuest and onboard chef on our liveaboard vessel.


Want to learn how to dive?

Our state-of-the-art Dive School, located in Cairns offers open water courses for anyone who has never dived before and would like to experience more of the magical underwater world! You’ll get all the top class tuition offered over two days of pool training, as well as two memorable day trips to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Our newest programme 'Scuba Kids' is a half-day program where children will learn the basics of scuba diving and try it for themselves. After a quick training session on land, they’ll be fitted with kid-size scuba equipment, hop into our heated dive pool and try breathing underwater for the first time. Scuba Kids is suitable for any kid who’s aged 8-11 years and comfortable in the water.

During their dive experience, kids will:

Learn how scuba diving equipment works and how to use it safely

  • Try scuba diving in the shallow end of our pool, supervised by our professional PADI instructors
  • Snorkel, swim and try our underwater scooters
  • Learn about the Great Barrier Reef and the wildlife you can see there
  • Play underwater games and have lots of fun!

Divers Den - Cairns Reviews


"An amazing 6 days"

Thank you for an amazing 6 days! Shout out to Luke for being the best instructor ever (I have never heard anyone talk about sea cucumbers and pearl fish with such enthusiasm) and Jo for taking us on an awesome night dive!! You guys are legends and will be missed! Thank you to the rest of the Crew who helped make the experience what it was: Unforgettable. If you want to learn to dive or are already certified and just want to experience the Great Barrier Reef, I would highly recommend this company. The crew will go out of their way to make it the best possible experience for you. They take you to some truly special parts of the reef and make sure to point out where all the good stuff are. If I ever get the chance to come back to Australia, I will definitely be returning!! - @Elizabeth Wentworth on FaceBook


"ReefQuest day trip"

My husband and I went out for a snorkel this morning on the Reef Quest. We had the best time. Everyone on board was super nice. We saw so many amazing things, sharks, clown fish, trigger fish, turtles, and many more! We had lots of time in the water and it exceeded our expectations by a mile (kilometre?!). 100% Recommend these guys to everyone! - @Mica S on TripAdvisor
