Cairns - boat from Lizard Island

Thanks to all my wonderful Fodorites, I THINK I am getting closer to finalizing travel plans. The big "hiccup" now concerns transportation back from a 3-night stay on Lizard Island. Husband and I are divers and want to do 1 full-day and 1 half-day dive trip while staying at the resort. Unfortunately, the timing of dive trips vs the air transport would mean that we would need to stay 4 nights. We would REALLY prefer to leave after 3 nights, but flying is not an option due to the resort's rules requiring 24 hours between diving and flying (example - if our last dive ended at noon on Tr, we couldn't fly until noon Friday).
We would be very happy to take a boat trip back to Cairns from Lizard Island the morning after our dive (in the above example, Fri morning or even TR night), but I am running into brick walls trying to see if there are any options for this. The resort suggested we might "hitch a ride" (paying, of course) with one of the day-trip boat operators who visit Lizard Island National Park, but they couldn't give me any names. I have contacted the Cairns Tourism Bureau, but they couldn't help either.

ANYONE have contact info/suggestions on who to contact for a day-trip operator or private charter that might provide transport from Lizard Island National Park to Cairns????

Thanks!
