Taka Dive Adventures - Cairns scuba diving tours from Cairns, Great Barrier Reef, Australia  
Photography / Gear Rental

Equipment Rental

The program covers basic underwater photography with special emphasis on practical photographic techniques. The course is offered for both digital and 35mm film cameras. The academic content of the program is divided into 3 main areas:

  • Mask
  • Fins
  • Snorkel
  • 3mm Shortie Wetsuit (summer) / 5mm Shortie Wetsuit (Winter) We also have hoods
  • and jackets available upon request
  • Regulator
  • BCD
  • Computer (optional) However, due to multi-level diving we recommend the use of a dive computer to ensure you receive the most out of your dives.
  • Tanks, Weights, Torches, Cylume sticks and safety kits are all included in the tour cost.

Cod Hole Tour (4 day 3 night) -$100AUD
Coral Sea Tour (5 day 4 night) - $140AUD

In Australia we use Yoke fittings to connect the regulator to the tank.
If you are using DIN fitting gear, you will need the appropriate adapter. The Dive shop has these for sale at $85AUD or alternatively you can rent the Din converter on board for $20AUD per trip.


  • If you are bringing your own gear, Queensland law requires all divers to dive with an alternate air source. Eg. 2nd Octopus
  • If your buddy is using a computer, you will be required to rent a separate computer to accurately record your dives. Although we do not recommend the usage of tables due to multi-level diving, you can use the tables, but both divers of the buddy pair must use tables.
