Staying overnight on the Great Barrier Reef is a unique experience. The night-time marine life gives you a completely new perspective on the reef, you see things you wouldn't normally! Start your day right with an early morning dive in one of the most beautiful reefs in the world. You'll wake up to the sound of waves lapping against the boat and witness the sun rising and setting along the horizon from the spacious decks of the Kangaroo Explorer.



Cairns Dive Centre's overnight vessel Kangaroo Explorer is a magnificent boat. CDC prides itself on the pristine conditions of the 19 reef moorings that we have cared for since 1983. We enjoy showing all our travellers the best ways to explore the Great Barrier Reef whilst staying on board Kangaroo Explorer.

CDC has many packages for overnight stays on Kangaroo Explorer. We offer INTRODUCTORY DIVING for the first time diver wanting a brief experience on how to dive. 

Would you like extra days and nights snorkelling on Kangaroo Explorer? The more nights you stay, the cheaper it is per night. All meals are provided by our onboard chefs with assistance from our friendly dive crew.
