Know Before You Go

Please ensure you have read and understood the following in order to give your family the best Reef Experience possible:

*Important Information

We have a passion to show you Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, therefore please make sure you understand the scuba diving laws in Australia.

Queensland, Australia has some of the strictest scuba diving rules in the world  but also the safest scuba diving record.  We are regulated by the Queensland Government Code of Practice and therefore comply with all conditions stated by law.

To avoid disappointment on your day of travel we strongly recommend that you complete our dive medical questionnaire prior to booking. Medical conditions, age and/or medications may prevent you from scuba diving. Above all, it is our mission to provide our passengers with the very best Great Barrier Reef experience.

Flying after Scuba Diving

For a single no decompression scuba dive, you should not fly or go to altitude for at least 18 hours after a scuba dive.  For multiple dives you should not fly for 24 hours after your last dive. If Skydiving or Hot Air Ballooning you must wait 24 hours after your dive. We recommend waiting a minimum 24 hours whenever possible

Your safety is our priority – all activities are weather permitting

    We first saw the Reef Experience add online and the great experience and opportunity to scuba dive. The crew were truly amazing, very friendly and made me feel confident and safe on my dives, and also my favourite part of the day. Keep up the great work and thank you for an experience of a lifetime!
