It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful reef locations available anywhere in Australia and perfect for helmet diving.

Introductory Diving

No experience necessary. All equipment supplied including wetsuit & souvenir dive certificate to hang on your wall. The Reef Magic pontoon provides a safe, controlled environment perfect for the novice diver.

Stairs lead into a sheltered “moon-pool” where you will spend time practicing some basic scuba skills in shallow water before heading off on your dive. Group size is kept small with a maximum of 4 divers per instructor (less if nervous divers) so you know you are in safe hands.

Your first dive will be in our coral lagoon, a shallow sheltered area with dense coral cover and teaming with fish life. The 1st dives last around 20-30 minutes and reach a maximum of 12 metres with most of the dive around 4-5m. On the 2nd or 3rd dives you will have already done the skills leaving more time for the actual dive.


Certified Diving 

Reef Magic Cruises are renowned for offering some of the best certified diving on the Great Barrier Reef. With the Reef magic pontoon as your base our dedicated dive tender takes you to a selection of drift, wall & channel dives including swim through, small caves, ledges & drop off’s. These are private locations only accessible to Reef Magic pontoon visitors so you are ensured a unique dive experience.

With 5 hours actual reef time we can offer up to 3 completely different dives in a day. All dives are professionally guided for your safety and enjoyment. We take you direct to the best places, leaving you more time to take in the beauty of your surroundings without the need to navigate.
