A roaming reef permit allows TUSA's skipper (Boat Captain) to find the very best reef sites based on that day's weather conditions. On the way to the reef, the Skipper is looking at the wind speed, wind direction, and whether or not it is an incoming or outgoing tide. The flexibility of the roaming reef permit allows the skipper to choose the very best reef sites for that day. This is a real bonus, enjoy snorkeling and or scuba diving over bright colored coral gardens. Expect to find a large array of marine animals that inhabit the reef. Great for underwater photographers.
Snorkeling from the TUSA boat is a pleasure. All snorkel, fins, mask, lycra suit (Stinger suit) is provided. A detailed briefing on how to use the snorkel equipment is also provided. The boat was professionally designed for snorkeling and scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. A large hydraulic step lowers into the water, semi-submerged this makes it really easy to get in and out of the water for people snorkeling. Life jackets and pool noodles are also available on the day, just ask the crew.
Certified Scuba Diving:
TUSA is one of the few dive boats in Cairns that allow unguided diving. They will buddy you up with another diver and let the two of you explore the reefs in your own buddy pairs. This is awesome for experienced divers and underwater photographers. You can still get a dive guide, there is no extra charge for this, and it can be organized on the boat. Full dive gear is provided i.e. snorkel, fins, mask, wetsuit (5mm Short) BCD, regulator, dive computer, tanks, and weights. Remember to bring your dive license on the day.

Once completed you enter the water and slowly descend to between 8 and 12 meters under the boat. From here your instructor will guide you around the Great Barrier Reef.
