Scuba Diving the Great Barrier Reef Cairns Australia (Agincourt Reef)

I finally made a trip to the Great Barrier Reef to do some scuba diving with the Quicksilver guys. We dived a beautiful spot called Agincourt Reef, at the very outer edge of the Barrier Reef. Here, special reefs known as 'ribbons' run parallel to the Continental Shelf. Adjacent to the Coral Sea trench, these ribbon reefs are recognized as the most pristine eco-systems in the reef's environment. We did 2 dives at an average of 12 meters / 40 mins. The Red Sea Bass were there to greet us on the drop into the water. Hundreds of different types of corals, a few lionfish, drummers, unicornfish, clownfish and tons of anemones in the shallower sections.

As an American who lives in a place where SCUBA diving just isn't possible, I have a few questions.  1) How expensive is it to become certified and do something like this?  2) How long does it usually take to become certified and get into this sort of a dive?  And 3) Is the area you dove particularly "travelled"?  By that, I mean is it sort of like a main tourist attraction where literally everybody goes on their first real dives?  And most importantly, if that's the case, would you say it takes away from the experience of it at all?

Discover Scuba diving will allow you to dive this dive without a certification. It's a guided dive with a hour+ long class on how to dive with a basic understanding of SCUBA. The prices vary on your location. If you want your open water cert, prices range from $380+ and takes about 4 days to complete.
This particular dive was very basic with alot of people diving it. It's great for those experiencing it for their first time. Once you become comfortable underwater with dozens of dives, venture elsewhere to more exotic locations with less people to really enjoy the views.

No jellyfish. It was a little disappointing on the area we dived at. Not much around and they tried to rush the dive groups.

I used 2 camera to film this. (Canon S95) One camera had the handheld Canon housing.

Wow this is awesome, I am going with quicksilver in two weeks. My big question though, is how did you mount the camera?? I'm looking at getting the Dive mount, but wasn't sure if I should just hold it or use the head mount or what??
