We deliberately avoid setting a firm daily schedule, ensuring the wildlife acts naturally and doesn’t begin shying from busy spots, so the surprise, “big ticket” sightings are frequent and amazing. This is a rare luxury, afforded by our particular permit and the size of our vessel which enables us to move very freely and explore. The ability to roam the magnificent reef systems off Port Douglas is a true pleasure for us, only enhanced by the opportunity to share often unknown sites daily with just a handful of people from around the world. ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas is a truly low impact operation. Our purpose fitted reef boat INDEPENDENCE 1 is a prestige luxury dive vessel and our footprint is tiny.
