Diving Extras At Marine World
Don't know if diving is for you?
We understand many people are nervous about diving for the first time – that’s normal. Therefore, we offer a unique no obligation “try before you buy” intro dive!
Try on the gear, get in the water and run through the basic skills with your instructor. If you decide diving is not for you, that’s fine, at least you gave it a go and we won’t charge you for the experience. Of course if you like it, let’s go diving!
No experience necessary. All equipment supplied including wetsuit & souvenir dive certificate to hang on your wall. The Marine World platform provides a safe, controlled environment perfect for the novice diver. Stairs lead into a sheltered “moon-pool” where you will spend time practicing some basic scuba skills in shallow water before heading off on your dive. Group size is kept small with a maximum of 4 divers per instructor (less if nervous divers) so you know you are in safe hands.
Your first dive will be in our coral lagoon, a shallow sheltered area with dense coral cover and teaming with fish life. The 1st dives last around 20-30 minutes and reach a maximum of 12 metres with most of the dive around 4-5m. On the 2nd or 3rd dives you will have already done the skills leaving more time for the actual dive.

With 5 hours actual reef time we can offer up to 3 completely different dives in a day. All dives are professionally guided for your safety and enjoyment. We take you direct to the best places, leaving you more time to take in the beauty of your surroundings without the need to navigate.
Sites are chosen to suit the weather conditions on the day and take in to account the experience of the divers. Don’t forget your log book so we can record your Great Barrier Reef experience for you!
SNUBA® & SNUBA Doo®
Would you like to “go beyond snorkeling®” but are a little bit intimidated of SCUBA diving, try SNUBA®! A world wide patented, shallow water recreational diving system that is bridging the gap between snorkelling and scuba diving.
SNUBA® Diving is when you go underneath the surface of the water and can stay with in your own level of comfort (you can go back to the surface at any stage). If you choose, you can go down to a maximum depth of 3 metres. There is no need to have any prior experience or training and under the supervision of your certified, professional SNUBA® Guide, you can explore underwater up to 3 metres. You do not need to wear heavy, bulky equipment; just your normal snorkelling gear, SNUBA® harness and a light weight belt.
SNUBA is much easier than snorkelling and is the safest way to explore the underwater world that the whole family can enjoy.
SNUBA® Diving for ages 12 to 80+
SNUBA Doo® Power Snorkeling for ages 4 to 80
