Challenger Bay Dive Site

Cairns, Cairns Area

Divers that love to watch fish, and plenty of them, will have a great time exploring Challenger Bay. Located on Ribbon Reef No.10, north of Cairns, Challenger Bay is a picturesque sandy bay dotted with small bommies and lovely coral gardens.

Home to dozens of cleaning stations, divers will see the fish queueing up to be cleaned at these service points; including sweetlips, triggerfish, coral trout, rock cods and angelfish. Schooling fish tend to gather at Challenger Bay and it is common to see trevally, barracuda, snappers and humphead parrotfish.

Challenger Bay is a brilliant dive site where you will also see reef sharks, stingrays, cuttlefish, Maori wrasse, moray eels, nudibranchs and a large colony of garden eels.
