Great Barrier Reef Mooring Specialists

North Marine is the Great Barrier Reef mooring experts. We facilitate mooring infrastructure throughout the Coral Sea, including Queensland and the Torres Straits.

Services include installation; ongoing maintenance and mooring compliance; pontoon installation – including connection, disconnection and towage; and cyclone mooring installation and compliance.

As mooring specialists, we are extremely well acquainted with what you expect from a commercial dive provider. Our experienced dive crew assess your mooring/s and give you peace of mind.

While most mooring inspections are routine, in most circumstances, we are equipped to perform on-the-spot maintenance as necessary – from minor repairs to significant change-outs. We strive to ensure no unnecessary delays in making sure your mooring is compliant for use.

Clients include the Queensland Government, commercial shipping agents, the Australian Navy, tourism operators and private individuals. (View client testimonials here).

We hold a long-term recurring contract with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS), to maintain public moorings throughout the Great Barrier Reef. Twice annually, our commercial diving jobs include the service of public-use Great Barrier Reef moorings for QPWS.

We can deliver a cost-effective advantage to all parties when we combine mooring work for numerous clients on the same voyage.

‘Mooring Compliance’ Commercial Dive Company

Our commercial diving service includes issuing ‘certificate of compliance’ paperwork. These may be required for boat moorings, pontoon moorings, helipad moorings and other marine structures/watercraft. Mooring compliance may be required by Government agencies or by insurance providers.

Compliance certificates are issued upon installation or satisfactory inspection of your mooring, giving you quality assurance and peace of mind.

North Marine provide this service throughout the Qld Great Barrier Reef and Torres Straits regions.

We issue MSQ Certificates of Compliance, QPWS Certificates of Compliance and GBRMPA compliance paperwork – where applicable.
