Diving & Snorkelling in the Whitsundays

The Whitsundays offer so many perfect dive sites, and has become one of the most renowned sites for diving in the world.  Almost every tour on offer will pull up to anchorages around the islands that are full of fringing reefs, drop offs and a huge variety of large and small marine life. 

The diverse Scuba diving options available allow travellers to choose an adventure that will suit both their experience and ensure expectations are met.

If you want to learn to dive, there are many Whitsunday tour options that provide an experienced dive instructor to give you a taste of diving - this will probably excite you into getting your open water diving certification.  Those with an open water diving certification can jump onboard one of the many overnight tours that travels out to the outer reef and provides non stop diving and adventure.
