The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most amazing natural wonders. At 2,300km in length it is made of living organisms and, unbelievably, covers over 340,000sq.km.

The Great Barrier Reef is located on the east coast of Australia, next to Queensland. And, although day-trips are available we would highly recommend a liveaboard. It is very likely the best way to discover this immense, bustling hive of aquatic life.

Departing from either Cairns or Port Douglas – the Scubapro III and Scubapro II of Pro Dive Cairns visit offer rewarding, extended liveaboard trips to Cod Hole or Coral Sea. The 3 day itinerary being their most popular.
