Scuba Diving in Cairns, Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Dive Site: Cathedrals
Location: Thetford Reef, Cairns (16°47'S 146°10')
Depth: 5 - 30 metres (16 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 15 - 20 metres (50 - 65 feet)
A spectacular dive, the coral formations of Cathedrals rise from the seabed, creating deep canyons through the reef. This site is home to many soft and hard corals like staghorn, fan, and plate coral and an abundance of marine life. Look for the giant clams, butterflyfish, damsels and angelfish. Access to the reef is very weather and tidal dependent.
