Don’t Know if Diving Is for You?

We offer a unique no obligation “try before you buy” intro dive!

We understand many people are nervous about scuba diving for the first time – that’s normal. Therefore, we offer a unique no obligation “try before you buy” intro dive!

Try on the gear, get in the water and run through the basic skills with your instructor. If you decide diving is not for you, that’s fine, at least you gave it a go and we won’t charge you for the experience. Of course if you like it, let’s go diving!

Our new pontoon has a viewing platform so family and friends can watch divers and helmet divers from above the moon pool, and in the underwater observatory.

Our Diving Options

Introductory Diving From $119

No experience necessary. All equipment supplied including wetsuit & souvenir dive certificate to hang on your wall. The Reef Magic pontoon provides a safe, controlled environment perfect for the novice diver.

Stairs lead into a sheltered “moon-pool” where you will spend time practicing some basic scuba skills in shallow water before heading off on your dive. Group size is kept small with a maximum of 4 divers per instructor (less if nervous divers) so you know you are in safe hands.

Your first dive will be in our coral lagoon, a shallow sheltered area with dense coral cover and teaming with fish life. The 1st dives last around 20-30 minutes and reach a maximum of 12 metres with most of the dive around 4-5m. On the 2nd or 3rd dives you will have already done the skills leaving more time for the actual dive.

Certified Diving From $89 | Second Dive $59

Reef Magic Cruises are renowned for offering some of the best certified diving on the Great Barrier Reef. With the Reef magic pontoon as your base our dedicated dive tender takes you to a selection of drift, wall & channel dives including swim through, small caves, ledges & drop off’s. These are private locations only accessible to Reef Magic pontoon visitors so you are ensured a unique dive experience.

With 5 hours actual reef time we can offer up to 3 completely different dives in a day. All dives are professionally guided for your safety and enjoyment. We take you direct to the best places, leaving you more time to take in the beauty of your surroundings without the need to navigate.

Sites are chosen to suit the weather conditions on the day and take in to account the experience of the divers. Don’t forget your log book so we can record your Great Barrier Reef experience for you!
