The past three months have been extremely difficult for the Cairns tourism industry. Dive boats have been put into maintenance, many staff, dive instructors, boat crew and captains have been either stood down are placed on minimal hours all with the hope of hibernating the companies ready to revive them once travel bans and restrictions are lifted.

“It really is so fantastic to see companies starting up their operations and running trips to the Great Barrier Reef again!” – Clint

COVID-19 caused many issues in Cairns, it has been very hard for all involved. But seeing a handful of reef operators starting up and entering back into the Cairns tourism market again is just fantastic.

Day boats have been running mid-week and on the weekends, two liveaboard dive boats; Reef Encounter and Pro-Dive have started overnight trips and the reef looks absolutely stunning.
