Evolution - wow!

Down Under Dive provide daily Great Barrier Reef scuba diving and snorkelling tours from Cairns, aboard their brand new boat Evolution. Evolution commenced operations in December 2015 and was custom designed and built as a specialist reef day tour vessel. Equipped with the latest dive and snorkel equipment, she features three levels, with two air-conditioned interiors and three exterior sun decks.

Excellent experience with friendly crew

We went as a family, parents with adult children and their spouses. Our experience level ranged from those with some snorkelling experience to those with limited swimming ability. The crew were very helpful and supportive. There was no pressure to do anything you didn't want to, but they were keen to help you achieve your goals and experience the reef. My wife was able to celebrate her 50th birthday by scuba diving for the first time.
