What you can expect

As the first of its kind in the Southern hemisphere, the Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) will act to highlight reef conservation, restoration, and education on a global scale. The Coral Greenhouse – first submerged building design by world-class artist Jason deCaires Taylor is a bucket list trip no one should miss!

Surrounding the Museum of Underwater Art is an amazing coral reef bursting with a plethora of marine life. The bright and beautiful colours are the perfect backdrop for the museum and the location provides the perfect blend of man-made and natures art.

With plenty of reef nearby to explore and depths ranging from 1 to 20 metres, it is ideal for beginner and experienced divers. Discover how the Great Barrier Reef is managed and what work is being done to protect it.

If you're looking for a reef diving experience in the Townsville region, this Outer Great Barrier Reef and MOUA dive tour offers a full day of marine exploration in some of the best areas of the Great Barrier Reef. Departing from either Townsville or Magnetic Island, you'll join your friendly crew onboard above a comfortable, modern vessel and head for the more pristine, outer areas of the reef to a range of outstanding dive spots known for both their array of marine life and high degree of visibility.

Each dive site has some of its own charm to offer, but during your diving experience you will come across the likes of turtles, stingrays, white-tip reef sharks and a seemingly-endless array of colourful fish. With a range of dive terrain to explore - everything from large plate and staghorn coral structures with small caves to prolific open coral reefs and everything in between, it's a Great Barrier Reef diving experience that covers every part of the diving spectrum. Whether you're an advanced diver or only newly certified, book this Townsville diving tour today and you'll be able to discover why this area off the coast of North Queensland is one of the most interesting dive sites in the country - and with drinks, morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea, full dive gear hire and more included you'll have everything you need for an unforgettable marine adventure!
