The Outer Great Barrier Reef Off Port Douglas
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority – in their 2013/14 Reef Report – said that the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs were the “best and most pristine examples of coral reefs in the whole GBR”. Scuba Diving in Port Douglas is still superb.
At Blue Dive we are proudly involved in several campaigns to defend the quality of the Great Barrier Reef.
If you want to see how Blue Dive is actively engaged in defence of our marvellous Great Barrier Reef please watch this short video produced by Helen De Ross from Bendigo Bank in Port Douglas:

Three Great Reasons To Dive With Blue Dive
1. No mass diving at Blue Dive – no diving in other divers bubbles, enjoy the reef as it should be seen in your own small group.
2. Dive with the knowledge that you will be looked after very safely and that you are diving with the Premier Port Douglas PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Resort. Blue Dive has assembled the most experienced, safety conscious yet fun and friendly team of professional dive instructors in north Queensland.
3. We have a policy of taking a maximum of 5 on PADI Open Water Courses and Advanced Courses as it means we can give expert and individual attention to each student – it’s a bit like the small school classes issue. It’s much, much better for the learning to dive experience.
And we now have an on-line option for the theory parts of the Open Water, Advanced, Rescue and Divemaster courses. This can be completed before you arrive saving you time on your well-deserved holiday. Click below for PADI Elearning.
We had a recent Blue Dive staff meeting (29 May 2017) to assess the impact of the recent Great Barrier Reef bleaching episode on our reefs – and the conclusion was that there has been approximately 15% bleaching of overall coral cover on our marvellous reefs, which is 15% too much. But the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs are – thankfully – still wonderful to dive.
And here is the authoritative Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority Report, indicating 16% coral damage in our Cairns to Cooktown region.
But there is no doubt that the issue of climate change needs to be addressed much more seriously than it is at present.
Blue Adventures Wildlife And Rainforest Tours
Blue Dive have expanded and are now offering small group and privately guided rainforest and wildlife tours, led by professional and friendly guides.
Why choose a Blue Adventures Rainforest and Wildlife tour? Over the years we have spoken with thousands of visitors to Port Douglas who have completed rainforest tours and the most common feedback we hear is “the rainforest was beautiful but we didn’t see any animals”. Blue Adventures takes a different approach and our tours have a real focus on the native wildlife of far north Queensland.
Join a Blue Adventures Tour and see – in their natural habitat – emus, an abundance of kangaroos and wallabies, incredible bird life, frill-necked lizards and much more. We never know what else we will see on these tours, that’s part of the fun…but the areas we visit also contain populations of very rare tree kangaroos and the elusive duck-billed platypus.
On our tours we explore World Heritage rainforest, cruise on outback wetlands and enjoy a delicious lakeside restaurant lunch in the rainforest. Lunch and drinks included.
Our small group trips take a maximum of just 6 guests and run Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Private trips can be arranged for most group sizes and are run on demand.
