    Fair value trip 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Monday Departure), Australia in October

    I had a great time with ScubaPro I. Crew and people on board were all great and friendly. Food was delicious and dessert was served all three days throughout. There was a variety of different experience levels, all the way from beginners getting certified to an ex-rescue diver who dove about 500 times. I was able to pair up with comparable diving buddies. I'd definitely come back to ProDive Cairns (for other reefs though)!

    We left feeling disappointed. 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Friday Departure), Australia in April

    I'm sad to say that as of right now when I look back I don't have a highlight reel running through my head. My husband and I were both disappointed in the diving for a number of reasons. I will say the boat was older but clean, the staff was super nice yet completely unresponsive. It reminded me of being in Mexico where you ask a question and they shake their head "yes" but never do anything. The food was much better than I expected and that cook worked her butt off. I find it interesting there is no room for recommendations or negative feedback on this survey. Overall, it was a great value if our dives had been decent. I personally would rather spend 5x more for a better experience as this was possibly the only time I will dive the reef. I'm sad that equipment issues weren't addresses causing missed opportunities for great dives. Also, we had no idea that 75% of the guests on board were getting certified. That was annoying and took a lot away from the experience.

    Accomadation - very basic bunks & no wardrobes to hang your clothes Pre dive briefing - drawn on a white board Meals - very good however only one choice of main meal Gear - standard rental stuff most divers got blister off the fins ( take your own ) Dives - spectacular coral reefs , although night dives were limited to only 30 mins Guides - friendly & helpful although many different certifications on board & people taking courses seemed a bit chaotic at times Overall I did enjoy my trip the diving is spectacular however the onboard experience wasn't upto scratch the boat was dated and basic the air con in the cabins wasn't very good & I had to sleep in the dining room toe escape the oven that I was in

    Barrier Reef on a Budget 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Monday Departure), Australia in December

    Prodive offers no-frills dive trips to the portions of the reef nearer to Cairns. This isn't the best diving around, nor does the boat have fancy food or rooms, but it is substantially lower cost than other providers. The crew and passengers were mostly young and very friendly, the diving was frequent/near constant (though several dives were repeat dives at the same site), and there was plenty of food that was just fine (though not gourmet, and generally skimpy on meat). The cabins were simple but comfortable enough to sleep just fine. Make sure you bring sunscreen (Queensland sun seems to burn you faster than anywhere else for some reason), shampoo, and at least two towels that can dry quickly. Tipping was optional and done with cash- $50 seemed to be above average and many didn't tip. Chapstick and a GoPro or waterproof camera are also important. If you're looking to dive the barrier reef on a budget, or you are a young backpacker looking to make some friends, Prodive is a great choice!
