With the chance of being in the water at the same time as a platypus, it is no wonder we have been voted #1 in Queensland and #3 in Australia two years running on the Australian bucket list. An exciting, magical, fun, educational and safe experience which has attracted people from all over the world.
Rainforest Scuba is an experience of a lifetime that leaves a lasting memory. A platypus could nibble your hand or you might just watch them feed in the natural world.  It is also where you can explore the underwater world with an amazing array of different aquatic life including turtles, nesting eel-tail catfish and many more interesting and beautiful creatures which you would normally never see.
 This adventure attracts people to the region not just from Australia but from all over the world who would otherwise never have come here; many have specifically tailored their trip to include Rainforest Scuba. This attraction makes you part of a bucket list experience that’s safe for all and creates a lasting memory. TV shows, journalists, bloggers, photographers, divers, non-divers to name a few have experienced Rainforest Scuba.
