Award-Winning Reef Boat: Evolution


Down Under Cruise and Dive are proud to introduce their ultra modern, high speed, brand new reef day tour boat, Evolution, which arrived into port on 22 December 2015. The three-level, custom designed and built catamaran commenced daily reef trip operations on 30 December 2015, making it the newest addition to Cairns’ reef day tour fleet.


The lower deck is our main saloon area. This is where you will board for the day, meet the captain and be assigned seats. This air-conditioned interior section features a large seating area for up to 140 people with tables and large windows for excellent views. Your included lunch will also be served here and you can grab drinks and snacks at the fully stocked bar. There is also access to bathroom amenities.


Water entry for divers aboard Evolution has never been easier, use the steps which submerge directly into the ocean, providing comfortable access for snorkellers and divers alike. The hydraulic dive platforms are the largest of any reef vessel for easy access in and out of the water.


With your own personal storage area we'll ensure you don't lose your hire equipment, with room for your flippers, mask and snorkel.


The air-conditioned middle deck has plenty of comfortable bench seats with tables and many windows to enjoy the views. This is where divers and helicopter flight participants receive their safety briefing.


The perfect option for a group of friends, a large family or corporate groups travelling to the Great Barrier Reef. The exclusive Gold Class personal lounge offers you a private sanctuary where you are treated to many exclusive benefits including TV, mini bar, wine fridge, coffee machine, storage, prescription masks, lycra wetsuits and access to our SubXplorer Semi Submersible Tour.
