Great Barrier Reef The Caves


Sea Quest offers fantastic value for money, and gives you an opportunity to do up to 2 dives on the Outer Barrier Reef at 2 different sites. This vessel also operates as a transfer boat taking passengers to the over night boat - Ocean Quest.
Purpose built for snorkelling and diving Sea Quest has an average travelling time of 90-minutes each way and limits its daily passenger numbers to a maximum of 60. The boat has been custom built to provide ease of access to and from the water with a semi-submerged deck at the rear. Sea Quest has air-conditioned interiors and exterior sun decks
In the afternoon Sea Quest meets up with Taka, the liveaboard dive vessel. Some passengers will transfer onto Taka and others onto SeaQuest for the return journey back to Cairns.
