Fantastic, absolutely unforgettable experience

The amazing experience of diving on the Great Barrier Reef and diving and sharing the experience with my 19 year old grandson. The beautiful underwater “gardens” and unbelievable colourful fish - just amazing. The whole experience was incredible.

Great crew!

The early morning dive with lots of fish. However a lot needs to be done in terms of the way this is organised. A large number of people and some cabins that are roomy and some cabins that are TINY. I got a tiny cabin, the same size as the cabin the staff member next to us had. We were sharing but she had her own cabin. Also, a lot of people on the liveaboard had not dived without a guide before and none of the dives had any guide- even the night dive! I have dived in a number of places around the world and they all have guides. A lot of people were actually taking lessons and I am very hesitant to think about how one instructor can teach so many people at once. They definitely need more crew on board - maybe they can take 3 more crew members and give them the tiny cabin they gave us. Would not recommend in spite of the lovely staff. This liveaboard is not about the GBR experience is it about making money.
