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.

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 private group. Yes there are other divers on the boat, but you can dive with your own private guide on your own route.


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 Dive Resort. Blue Dive has assembled the most experienced, safety conscious yet fun and friendly team of professional dive instructors in north Queensland.


3. We now have a COVID policy of only booking private 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.

Blue Adventures Wildlife And Rainforest Tours

Blue Dive have expanded and are now offering private charter  rainforest and wildlife tours from Port Douglas, 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 private 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.

Our private charters take a maximum of just 6 guests and can run on any day.
