Fast Catamarans

Updated: 29-Apr-2016

Fast catamarans are a popular option for trips to the outer reef. Travel time on average is 90 minutes to the most northern outer edge dive destination that can be reached by a day operator.  The fast travel allows more time for snorkeling and diving at the outer edge.

 

If this is your only trip to the reef, you will be able to enjoy two to three different reef locations in the one day, which is great value for money. Most operators have access to a number of reef sites that enables the Skipper to moor the vessel at the best sites based on the conditions, water clarity and marine life available on your day of travel.

 

Passenger numbers on these trips can range from 60-80 passengers max depending on the reef operator. Most vessels can hold much more seating however they choose to cap the passenger numbers to ensure a more personalised experience.

 

Most fast cats are specially designed, dedicated dive boats offering state of the art navigation and communication equipment, on board compressors, spacious back deck areas and transoms that open onto water level platforms for easy entries and exits.

 

Comfortable interiors and outdoor deck areas offer plenty of seating to ensure a comfortable and memorable day, and the specially designed dive deck area allows snorkellers and divers to interact without either activity interrupting the other.

 

General inclusions and activities comprise of all snorkeling equipment and tuition, guided snorkel tours, lunch, and the option to upgrade to Intro or Certified Diving.
