Pro Dive operate 3 identical, custom-built vessels of the multi-million dollar variety that are aptly named Scubapro 1, 2 & 3. Designed specifically for taking divers on tours of the Cairns Great Barrier Reef, each vessel is 25 metres long, over 7 metres wide and accommodates 32 divers. The Scubapro boats and crew have built a great reputation and become the best available budget option for spending 3 days diving from Cairns.
All 3 of these Scubapro Cairns liveaboards share the same design and have the same high level of professional staff onboard. This is no coincidence as this setup ensures that no matter which Scubapro you might find yourself on, you can be assured of an excellent diving adventure on Cairns' Barrier Reef.
The large dive deck has 2 toilets and showers. It can accommodate all divers in comfort, with personal storage for each diver and ample space in which to gear up. 2 sets of steps from the dive deck leads down to a platform which offers easy access to dive sites. Unusually, rather than just a narrow ladder that you need to clamber up again once your dive is over, Scubapro liveaboards feature a wide staircase in the centre of the platform, making getting back onto the boat a breeze, even in choppy conditions.
The saloon has more than enough comfortable seating providing all tour guests with a space to relax. Free Wi-Fi is available on board Scubapro. It's also the venue for meals served in the saloon's air-conditioned comfort.
The dedicated sun deck is above the saloon, providing opportunity for a spot of tanning or doing nothing much other than take in the fresh air and blue vista of the Great Barrier Reef. Bench seating around the edge of the deck is complemented by enough space in which to lie down. A small shaded area allows protection from the sun, as well as hosting the dive site briefings.
The Scubapro fleet visit a variety of the Great Barrier Reef dive sites at 4 different outer reef locations on which they have exclusive moorings. That means no sharing the dive sites with dozens of other boats on your dive tour! In all, Scubapro has access to 16 exclusive moorings and it would be unusual to dive the same site more than twice on any one trip.
