Best Cairns Scuba Diving Trips

Blue Dive private guiding services are now available on the most modern Cairns dive boats – AquaQuest and its sister boat ReefQuest.

At Blue Dive we specialise in running exciting privately guided diving and snorkelling outer reef day trips from Cairns to the jewel of Cairns scuba diving  – the Norman and Saxon Reefs.

Great news! – Read how the Great Barrier reef is bouncing back from bleaching here.


Our privately guided outer reef Cairns Scuba trips are perfect for:


  1. Very experienced divers or photgraphers who don’t want to be held back by other weaker divers.
  2. Newly qualified divers or those that haven’t dived for a long time, refresher sessions can be included in your package at no extra cost.
  3. Introductory diving  trips (PADI DSD) – no experience needed – minimum age 12.  Max depth 12 metres.

The beauty of these popular trips is that we can centre the experience and briefings on your specific needs or requests. If requested we can keep you shallow or – training permitting –  get you a little deeper,  we can work on your air-consumption or buoyancy for example.

We regularly take divers who haven’t dived for long periods –  and by the end of the day they are happily back up-to-speed after completing a few safety and buoyancy skills on the first dive.


After all its your day – whilst of course we will keep everything very safe.


We can also take qualified divers with unqualified friends on these privatley guided Cairns scuba diving trips,


A complimentary photo shoot and memory stick are included in your privately guided qualified dive package diving with Blue Dive – all members of our team are accomplished underwater photographers and will give you some great memories to take home! Cairns Scuba diving at its best!


Our small team of Blue Dove instructors  are all locals having lived here a.long time- and all are very friendly, patient, helpful and professional.


Please contact us for an immediate quote.


If price is an issue, dive directly with the crew of ReefQuest or AquaQuest

We can book you to dive in larger groups  – maximum 8 divers  – with ReefQuest or AquaQuest and their professional dive crew.


You will have a great time on these trips – but it is only on the Blue Dive privately guided trips that include refresher sessions and underwater photos.
