Tusa departs daily from Cairns. A 90-minute journey to the outer reef will see you arriving at the first of the day's two sites. Activities on offer include guided snorkel tours, 'introductory' diving, and certified diving with up to 3 dives in the day available. You will enjoy up to 5 hours of diving and snorkelling magical coral reefs, where you will be amazed by the colour and diversity of marine life. Under the instruction and care of their professional dive crew, your day in the water will be safe, carefree and full of memories of a lifetime.

Tusa is considered a premium motoring vessel that can carry 120 passengers, yet this company caps the number of passengers at 65 per day. This ensures ample seats for everyone and personalised service from the crew.  They are also the only Cairns day boat that is licensed for 16 sites, enabling the Captain to selectively choose the best 2 sites for you on the day. This equates to visiting higher quality reef sites as the company is dispersing less people over more reef sites every day, which slows the human impact on the sites.

They are an Advanced Ecotourism Operator, committed to providing a service that reflects our responsibility to contribute to the protection of our environment.
