Port Douglas Diving Guided Tours Great Barrier Reef

Certified Divers lets go it is dive time! Diving the Great Barrier Reef is an amazing experience, made even better with ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas. This passionate company is committed to providing divers with the best service, sites and guides to maximise your day and experience on the reef. We even provide complimentary underwater photographs, capturing your diving adventure.

It’s time to get excited. A dive trip to the Great Barrier Reef should be memorable for all the right reasons, and it will be with ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas. We offer many things that others don’t. We’re the only divers’ boat in Port Douglas. Our small boat can access reef sites not visited by bigger boats and we guarantee a maximum of 5 divers per trip.

We deliberately avoid setting a firm daily schedule, ensuring the wildlife acts naturally and doesn’t begin shying from busy spots so the surprise, “big ticket” sightings are frequent and amazing. This is a rare luxury, afforded by our particular permit and the size of our vessel which enables us to move very freely and explore. The ability to roam the magnificent reef systems off Port Douglas is a true pleasure for us, only enhanced by the opportunity to share often unknown sites with just a small daily handful of people from around the world. ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas is a truly low impact operation. Our reef boat ‘SweetLips” is small and efficient and our footprint is tiny compared to the usual boats that take people to the reef.

Our freedom from an obligation to use permanent moorings means we can head for the merely incredible, and if we find something absolutely spectacular on the way, we jump in and have a look. If it blows us away we stay and play. Our agility opens myriad opportunities for fantastic, old school, totally exploratory days, getting to parts of the reef that are seen by no one else. Adventures that are nothing short of world class.

  • Small versatile boat with a shallow-draft giving us access to amazing reef locations
  • Outstanding customer focused personal service at all levels
  • Carrying a maximum of 5 certified divers per trip, with no more than 8 reef visitors per day
  • Remote and pristine sites not accessible to larger vessels
  • Genuine exploratory diving, exciting current drenched underwater pinnacles
  • Diving amongst ramparts of the continental shelf with pristine walls of coral
  • Expert crew of experienced locals, with a least one marine biologist aboard
  • More than 50+ years of combined crew experience living and working on the Reef
  • We explore new sites regularly to avoid sites becoming “over-dived”
  • We are an extremely low impact tourist operation with very low passenger numbers
  • Free professional images of your day – Free Go Pro HD underwater video Hire

This is adventure diving at its best. We don’t moor the boat at specific locations day after day. We are free to roam the reef and discover new sites: you could be the very first diver exploring a new location. How awesome!

Promise to you: We guarantee a maximum of 5 divers per trip; uncompromised diving at exciting reef locations; different styles and locations (drift dives and adventure dives); guided diving with guides who care and who also are there to take underwater photographs and capturing magic moments from your trip; open dive deck, we dive where we want, when we want; minimum of two guided dives per diver, per day tour; highly qualified crew; dive refresher courses if you need them. We may not be the cheapest but we are the best!

Believe me when I say that it is WELL worth paying a little extra for the personal service and wonderful, tourist-free diving with experts. Give the big boats a miss. They looked like my idea of hell upon earth (or water). Thanks Jay and crew for giving us a brilliant day. That is what memories are made of. Trip Advisor Review, 19 January 2015.

Certified Scuba Diving – Why choose ABC?

Our service is refreshingly different! ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas diving day tours take you away from the crowds, to remote reef sites the bigger boats can’t access. What does this mean? Often ours is the only boat you see and our guests the only people you are sharing the water with.

When you join us for multiple days of diving we will go out of our way to show you as much diversity as possible, with different types of dive locations. Discounts are available for multiple day bookings, contact us for more information.

The Great Barrier Reef is an amazing place to scuba dive! You can expect clear blue waters, sprawling coral gardens and a myriad of marine life, including fish of all shapes, colours and sizes, giant clams, rays, turtles, moray eels, sharks and more. We visit secret spots, with unspoilt coral growth teeming with turtles and fish life.

Our dive days are about quality not quantity. Generally we have a 2 tank dive day (2 tanks per person), however, having an open dive deck means that if we get the opportunity to swap the day around a little and you and your dive buddies would like 4 shorter dives, then that’s your choice. Our dive days are about spontaneity and excitement! Maybe we have a group of photographers aboard and they all want to dive in a shallow fish bowl or lagoon, doing shallower longer dives. No problem, just let us know.

Note: refresher courses are available and are definitely recommended if you have not dived for a while, or are feeling a bit rusty.

NB: If you are visiting between May and September, you might be lucky and get a close encounter with a Dwarf Minke or Humpback Whale who travel through these waters at this time of the year during their annual migration.
