Cairns Dive Centre offers you the best value for money diving and snorkelling day trip out to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. The Sun-Kist departs daily from “E” finger at the Marlin Marina, travels via Fitzroy Island, on the way to our live aboard boat. Sunkist will stay aside the Kangaroo Explorer and will visit one dive/snorkel location daily from a choice of Milln, Briggs, Moore and Thetford Reefs, Outer Great Barrier Reefs approximately 65 –70 kilometres from the coast of Cairns. Our outer reef sites are chosen for their abundance of hard and soft corals, amazing marine life, their diversity, splendour and visibility. The site chosen on the day will always offer the best in terms of safety and passenger comfort. Sun-Kist is a state of the art 60 foot (18 metre) mono hull with a top speed of 18 knots, which can carry 48 divers, however for extra comfort Cairns Dive Centre limits the combined diving and snorkelling passenger numbers to a maximum of 20 for our day trip to the Outer Great Barrier Reef
