Scuba Diving in Cairns, Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Tracey's Bommie

Location: Flynn Reef, Cairns (16°43'S 146°16')

Description: Reef

Depth: 6 - 30 metres (20 - 100 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)

Rating: *****

This dive site offers something for everyone and is suitable for beginner - intermediate divers. The shallows are excellent for snorkellers with plenty of small and colourful fish such as clownfish making their home amongst the corals. Maori wrasse are also frequent and delightful visitors. The site drops off around the back of the bommie into deeper water - a common area for sighting cruising reef sharks and eagle rays. The variety of this site makes it very popular with photographers.

We started the dive by dropping into the sand lagoon, then headed north to the bommies and reef. A really slow swim over nice soft coral with lots of damsel fish. There were lots of blue spotted rays swimming about.
