You don’t need a dive certification to scuba at the Great Barrier Reef! If you’ve never been scuba diving before, but want to experience the reef’s full potential, we highly recommend you try an Introductory Dive. A Divemaster will assist in giving you a taste of life under the sea, with a small group of other novice divers. The experience lasts for about 30 minutes, and it will be fully guided from start to finish. When your dive is complete, spend the rest of the day snorkeling!
