Important Information for Scuba Diving

We have a passion for showing you Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, so please understand the scuba diving laws.

Queensland, Australia, has some of the strictest scuba diving rule globally and so the safest scuba diving record.   We are regulated by the Queensland Government Code of Practice and comply with all rules, including medical, as is the law.

To avoid disappointment on your day of travel, we strongly recommend that all of our passengers complete our dive medical questionnaire before booking as some medical conditions, age and/or medications may prevent you from scuba diving.   It is always our mission to provide our passengers with the very best Great Barrier Reef experience.
