Shark Diving Cairns

Since 1984 we have been taking guests out to Holmes Reef for Shark diving Cairns experiences and we have had so much success with taking guests on these trips that we provide a 100% money back guarantee if you don't see any sharks on our trips. The Holmes Reef is remarkably clear year round with visibility up to 30 metres meaning you will have a fantastic Cairns shark fiving experience aboard our 66 foot vessel.

On our Cairns shark diving trips you will experience depths of over 1000 metres wit great wall diving opportunities and shark sightings a regular event. Our Cairns Shark Diving instructors and tour guides will take you to a part of the Great Barrier Reef that is rarely dived and even has visibility up to 50 metres.

What you will experience on our Cairns Shark Diving expeditions is a really unique event and a memory that you will be sure to keep for years to come.

What you will usually see on our Cairns Shark Diving trips include visiting great places to spot sharks of all kinds, especially white tipped and grey reef sharks. With Rum Runner Shark Diving Cairns expect Silver tip sharks and more!

If you are adventurous and want to go on a Cairns Shark Diving trip with a crew of experienced, professional and knowledgeable experts then contact Rum Runner Cairns today.

Operational Update 2021
Live-aboard trips re-started since June 2020

Great news as we are now operating our all our tours within any of the new COVID limitations. Now up to 2 Sq meters per person.

We have been working continuously and we are ready to operate trips to the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea and have our COVID safe plans and signs on board. Departures are scheduled on selected dates, and we will need a minimum number of passengers to make it viable. So, we ask to please accept some flexibility and a lot of understanding as you start to book on to our tours.

New COVID restrictions means guest numbers of 16 persons only plus the crew, everyone gets their own equipment for the entire trip: no sharing. All day help yourself snacks, and all meals prepared individually on board. We are also ready to operate our Full DAY 2 dive Outer reef trips (6am to 6pm ) in the summer months, and we return to the Shark Diving / Coral Sea / Holmes Reef between October through to April.

Call to book to guarantee the best rate and ask Captain Richard about the best sailing conditions and departure dates. Look out for select scheduled departures on our booking page, and COVID SPECIALS direct bookings secure free dive gear hire and reef tax included!

At this stage we are still bound by many restrictions such as ‘ social distancing 1.5m ’ so to make that possible we like to schedule departures on ‘fair weather and sunny dates’. By selecting days where we can assure the best cruising conditions possible, we can manage numbers accordingly ensuring social distancing measure onboard the S.V. Rum Runner.

If you would like to be added to our ‘potential guest register’ with further updates, please e-mail us with your interest at info@rumrunnercairns.com.au. Any bookings made direct with Rum Runner Cairns, which we are unable to honor or which you need to cancel, or are unable to reschedule, will receive 100% full refunds.

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.
