Hi all,

My first dives - finishing my open water cert. and doing a few fun dives I’m sure. I will be there the first week in Cairns, AU May 2012. I have chosen to go to the Great Barrier Reef and I am looking for local info on best places to hook me up with beginner dives and avoiding the tourist traps.

Any help and info is welcome.

I am new to this site and I will be checking out all the info here too...

Thanks so much for a place like this;

Same here! One of my dive instructors mentioned that all the wonderful marine life is further out in the outer reefs. I’m planning on being in Cairns the first week of April.
