Such an amazing experience and good value for money. I opted to do a introductory dive which was an extra $70 payable on the boat if you opt in and it was well worth it! The guides were amazing and made me feel comfortable the whole time. Snorkelling was awesome too. Morning tea and lunch is provided on the boat and an underwater photographer was in the water taking photos of everyone. On the way home, the photographer will show you your photos and you have an option of buying them or not, pretty reasonably priced and are good quality photos. If you have an iPhone, the photographer simply air drops the photos which is quick and easy otherwise, if you don’t have an iPhone he will give you a USB with the photos loaded onto it. Could not have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend booking this experience while visiting Cairns!

My friend and I did this experience together and we loved it. The staff are friendly and encouraging. Lunch, water and sunscreen is provided for you with the option of purchasing other food/drink items. We went to two different spots and saw so many beautiful fish and coral. The water was so warm and the day was beautiful. We always felt super safe as well. Such an unreal experience, thanks guys :)

Most amazing day ever! Staff were so friendly and very helpful. Felt very safe and ensured we felt comfortable, would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Cairns

It was one of the best experiences ever. The staff was really friendly and reassuring for a 1st time diver. I totally recommend it.

Excellent experience with a great crew! I had huge expectations for the coral reef, and I was not disappointed.
