Port Douglas Dive Sites
Being right on the southern end of the world-famous 'Ribbon Reefs', means that when you dive from Port Douglas you are knocking on the door of some of the best diving to be found on the Great Barrier Reef.
With our dive sites being located on the Outer Great Barrier Reef, means that they are regularly swept by currents and water movement from the Coral Sea, bringing with it cooler, deeper and clearer oxygen-rich water; loaded with nutrients. This forms the foundation for the incredible biodiversity found out on the reef, generating ideal conditions for the wide variety of marine organisms that make their home on the coral reef.
With us having the use of a number of dive vessels - whether it's on one of our day trips or PADI courses. or if taking a private charter, you will enjoy the amazing opportunities to dive in a wide variety of spectacular locations.
This is the northern-most area we travel to on our day trips, and is widely considered to be among the best diving that can be reached without joining a liveaboard trip.
When reef trips from Port Douglas started back in the early 1980's, Agincourt Reef was the go-to spot, and Opal reef was seen as a 'little brother' compared to it's enormous northern neighbour.
Over the years though, more and more divers and snorkelers started visiting Opal reef, and it quickly established a reputation as a stunning part of the reef in it's own right. Check-out the list below to learn about our dive sites
