Welcome to Blue Dive…

The best Scuba diving from Port Douglas

Submerge in affordable luxury with the Premier Five Star PADI Instructor Development Dive Resort

Dive in small personal groups with the most dynamic and experienced dive team in Port Douglas – Copied often but never beaten.

All our trips are guaranteed to go to the best OUTER Reef where the great visibility “makes” the reef – smaller boats cannot guarantee this.

The off-shore Low Isles are very nice for snorkelling – but they are not a good diving destination. Visibility is a maximum of 5 metres – that’s why all Blue Dive trips go to the outer reef for the abundant marine life, coral and visibility.

Blue Dive – Rated No. 1 of ‘Things to do’ on Trip Advisor.


Teeming with underwater life the Great Barrier Reef is, without doubt, one of the truly great natural wonders of the world –  and the very best way you can experience it is underwater – scuba diving off the Port Douglas coast in Blue Dive style.

The outer Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority – in their 2012/13 Reef Report – said that the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs and the Opal Reef Complex were the “best and most pristine examples of coral reefs in the whole GBR”.


We can book you for some lovely snorkelling at the off-shore Low isles, but for divers it’s the outer reefs where you really want to be – for the much better marine live and visibility.


At Blue Dive we are proudly involved in several campaigns to defend the quality of the Great Barrier Reef.

Trip Advisor

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.
