Taka Dive Adventures

Taka operates to remote regions of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. We dive with the giant Potato Cod at the Cod Hole, feed the sharks in the crystal clear waters of Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea, and visit some truly amazing sites up and down the Ribbons Reef.

Our BRAND NEW "Taka" has been launched, and has arrived in Cairns. The new vessel is a 30 metre purpose built dive boat that shall be like nothing currently available to explore remote dive sites. After doing over 1000 trips with Taka II, we have used that knowledge to build a Hi-Tech dive vessel that has more room, more comfort and more features than before. The vessel has a unique stabilised hull design to smooth out those Coral Sea trips, as well as features like bow and stern thrusters for safe manoeuvring while getting our divers as close to the reef as possible. The electronics package for navigation and entertainment is second to none, and the overall design philosophy is one of greater comfort through larger cabins and lounges along with higher levels of service and catering.

Escaping the Pommie winter, we flew into Cairns and of course I wanted to get straight out for a look around the Great Barrier Reef.
