Can you see the Great Barrier Reef without diving?
Quicksilver Cruises offer a non-swimming solution: a semi-submersible tour. You’ll be in air-conditioned comfort as you tour the reef sitting down, one metre below the water’s surface. The tour departs from Port Douglas and includes a day out on the reef atop a pontoon at the edge of Australia’s Continental Shelf.
Is scuba diving bad for the environment?
Divers and diving operations have a negative impact on the environment, causing direct damage as well as indirect damage through pollution and development. The industry has also been hit hard by poaching and overfishing. Several sites have been closed and permit systems introduced, frustrating some operators.
