It's a 90 minute one-way ride from Cairns to the Great Barrier Reef. Living aboard a boat allows you to make 11 dives in three days instead of just 6, plus you get 3 filling meals per day each full day on the boat....it's the way to go. I chose Diver's Den because they shuttle you to the live-aboard boat,... More

What a great day on the reef... the boat was good, the staff where better. Loved that we had options for various activities. I opted for a dive. I had not had a dive for over 10 years and the staff outlined and renewed alot of information to me. There was a photographer on board who you could purchase photos... More

2 day 1 night trip (4th and 5th Feb, 2015). Bright sunny days and calm night. The check-in is thorough and the instructor Pablo ensured that all areas are covered. His briefing regarding snorkeling and diving were great and detailed. Helped us understand the risk as well as the rewards of this adventure. The 1st day was a bit choppy... More

Diving with Deep Sea Divers Den was probably the best diving experience of my diving life so far. The facilities on board their liveaboard vessel were great, like we were on a floating hotel. The staff and dive instructors were friendly, helpful, and trustworthy. Diving equipment was of a high standard very well maintained. Dive sites were great, around Hastings,... More

Went out on the 3 day 2 night trip. I am a snorkeler and I there were more than enough opportunities for a snorkel (I can't remember if there were 3 or 4) and I found 2 was enough. Plenty of fish, turtles, sharks, coral etc. A very young and helpful crew with safety a high priority. The boat was... More

Diver's Den in Cairns offers several packages from which we chose the one day trip to the Great Barrier reef. This was a great day partly because of what we experienced on the two reef sites visited, partly because of the care, attention, and efficiency of the crew, and, inevitably, the good weather. Great care is taken to look after... More

I stayed with them for 2 nights. We had 12 dives all together. Dives were really good. It was a little bit tiring to have 5 dives per day. Equipment is in perfect condition.Boat, food and stuff are great. The only thing that I didn't like is that they dive without a guide. If guided dive is required it is... More

Day one, get picked up from your hostel, some paperwork, briefing on the boat, and going north. Day 2, 3 and 4 are for diving, 4 dives a days, with three night dives. You get... More

My poor sister was left stranded on the back of your boat told that she couldn't dive due to medication she is currently on.
