Scuba Doo gives visitors an opportunity not found anywhere else in Australia to take an unforgettable underwater journey aboard a one-of-a-kind scooter. No swimming ability or special skills are required to experience this unique Great Barrier Reef platform.
Great Adventures is the company which organises this unusual excursion which begins with a boat journey sailing between Cairns and Green Island twice each morning. Trained guides will explain how to operate the Scuba Doo aboard the vessel.
Once visitors sink beneath the Great Barrier Reef surface at the pontoon, they will begin a once in a lifetime 20-minute journey past stunning coral reefs, more than 1,500 tropical fish, and exotic sea creatures such as a Maori wrasse named Wally.
Although no snorkelling or scuba diving gear is required for the Scuba Doo experience, winter visitors should take advantage of the wetsuits provided at the pontoon. Helmets completely cover faces to leave contact lenses, glasses, and hair dry.
A steering wheel similar to those found on aircraft and a fully enclosed electric motor enable visitors to navigate the Scuba Doo with the push of a button on the scooter’s right hand side. A scuba tank pumps air into the Scuba Doo’s water free clear dome.
Swimming experience is not required to enjoy the experience, but all participants must be healthy and a minimum of 12 years of age. A professional diving instructor is nearby at all times and participants will learn how to communicate with hand signals in cases of emergency.
