TUSA Dive Snorkel Cairns – Australia
TUSA Dive and Snorkel Cairns are one of the original dive operators that started here in Cairns over 20 years ago, starting with their first small dive boat. Since then, TUSA 1 has progressed all the way to their beautiful new boat TUSA T6.
Operating out of Cairns, docked on E-finger at Marlin Marina, TUSA offer daily snorkel and diving day trips to The Great Barrier Reef from Cairns.
Departing at 8am in the morning and returning at 4pm, TUSA is great for the more adventurous at heart, especially those who want to snorkel or even try a scuba dive. For the certified diver, diving on TUSA is a great experience, as the crew are really geared up for this service.
My favorite thing about diving with TUSA is the fact that you can dive in buddy pairswithout the assistance of a guide. This is not always possible for a lot of dive boats in Cairns, which can be a little restrictive, especially if you are more advanced. Last Sunday, the weather was just perfect, so it was time to pack up the dive gear, ring my friend Juan and head out for a perfect day of diving on TUSA Dive and Snorkel.
Diving in December means it’s really nice, calm, warm water, ok you can have issues with jelly fish but these problems are mainly located on the mainland beaches and generally not out on the reef.
The water temperature in December sits at about 27 degrees so wearing just a t-shirt and shorts is possible but I like to wear a 3mm Mares full body wet suit, keeps the stingers away and me nice and warm after 30 mins or so down at 18 meters. Another great thing about TUSA is that they have a roaming permit, which means their skippers can wonder all over the reef and find the best location on any given day, depending on the tide, wind direction and speed.
To round off, if you are an experienced diver looking for a great day of personalized diving out of Cairns with a dive boat that really focuses on the certified diver, I would highly recommend TUSA Dive Snorkel.
