In addition to our international private expedition diving, we of course dive the Great Barrier Reef right on our back door step.

We offer our much lauded LUX private charter on the Great Barrier Reef, whether it be day trips or overnight options.

Private LUXE aboard your own Vessel from the Pioneers of Private Guiding

Your vessel or let us provide a private vessel to suit.

The perfect way to enjoy a Day Trip on the Great Barrier Reef with your own personal Tech Dive Academy Instructor as your guide for the day. You set the plan – Shallow Dives, Macro Photo Dives, Deep Dives, Adventure Dives, Tec or Rebreather – short or long bottom times. Whatever your pleasure! The crystal-clear waters, beautiful and incredible fish-life found at the Agincourt and Ribbon Reefs, 70km North East of Port Douglas and on the very outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef, enable us to offer the best possible LUXE private charter day trips. This includes Drift and Wall Dives, isolated pinnacles surrounded by pelagic fish, and coral gardens with their endless variety of colourful wrasses, cods, parrot fish, clown fish, angel fish, clams and anemones, that make a healthy living reef so beautiful. Or ask us about a few unique wreck sites.

Please note as of 01/03/2017 we have discontinued our acclaimed ‘private guided day trips’ aboard the local tourist day boat departures from Port Douglas. While still a very popular service, as part of our ongoing reviews and differentiation of brand the decision to only offer our LUXE vessel option has been taken. Basic private guiding services are now offered by many of the vessel operators themselves, and this product was always an orphan from our early days in 2003 aboard Poseidon and Silversonic. Private guiding is now solely available in the LUXE format, aboard your vessel or our whiteboat.



Bespoke Vessel Charters and Unique Expeditions


With several vessel options available for day, overnight and extended expedition options, let us design a unique expedition just for you. We can create options from 2 to 8 guests in true LUXE comfort, all with the greatest of discretion and privacy.

Our HVG team handle all logistics, transfers, staffing, activities, and let our chef design a menu to compliment the charter – with local farm to plate tasting experiences a specialty. Activities can include the likes of Scuba, Snorkeling, Fishing, SUP, Free Diving, Jetskis, Coral Cays and Land excursions on longer trips and more, all under the watchful eye of our instructor team.

Options are available all along the Eastern Sea Board of Australia (Great Barrier Reef, Solitary Islands NSW and Lord Howe being some examples), Northern Western Australia (The Kimberly), and Papua New Guinea.
