Airlie Beach & Whitsunday Islands Diving Experiences

Airlie Beach and Whitsunday Islands diving experiences are perhaps most suited to the novice and intermediate diver. These divers will enjoy the sheltered waters and relatively shallow dive depths. Most of the dives, whether taken on a day trip or liveaboard expedition, are completed in and around one of the many islands, and provide the opportunity for relaxing on the beach and/or exploring the island.

The majority of trips are on sailing boats, which is a very popular pastime in Airlie Beach and around the Whitsunday Islands. The pace is slow and the experience is as much about the journey as the day and the dive, or snorkel. Day trip times vary, pending operators. Liveaboard trips start from 2 day / 1 night (snorkel only) to 3 day / 3 night. When booking a dive package, all equipment and tuition is included.
