Rum Runner offers the absolute best liveaboard dive and snorkel deals to both Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the remote Coral Sea

Dive, snorkel and sail away with us on select departures available from our famous 2D/1N GBR dive and snorkel liveaboard and PADI Courses, or our half and full day Private Charters, Extended Ribbon Reef Expeditions / Charters, and private charter up to 5 days / 5 nights departing from Cairns to Australia’s top attraction - The Great Barrier Reef - to the very outer reefs that we visit - with still abundant healthy tropical reefs, rich with marine biodiversity.

Private Coral Sea Dive Expeditions of 3 nights / 3 days duration can be booked for afternoon departures to one of the world’s top 50 dive destinations – Holmes Reef. Shark dives and sheer walls laced with massive soft corals, schooling barracoota and big eye trevally, and if you’re really lucky manta-rays, whale sharks and hammer head sharks, are just some of the highlights you'll experience with Rum Runner shark diving Charters.

Rum Runner Cairns have been providing Cairns Reef Trips since 2005 and in that time we have gained valuable experience of the area we tour and where the best spots to go are. We take regular groups of up to 16 people for Cairns snorkeling expeditions where guests get to see some of the most beautiful parts of the Great Barrier Reef. Our services are value added with Cairns scuba diving expeditions to some very unique parts of the Great Barrier Reef marine park and we ensure all of our services are operated in the most professional way. If you have never been scuba diving before don't worry! We have trained and certified Cairns PADI course instructors who can help you get the skills necessary before you come out with us for a reef diving trip. And if you ever wanted to go shark diving Cairns this is our specialty with trips to the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea expeditions to take divers to places where spotting all types of sharks is possible.
