Drifting along a sea wall teaming with sealife and choral, with no sign of human presence or impact, no words, simply breathtaking! Only to be greeted with hot apple cake and hot chocolate upon our return. Great people, super professional staff who genuinely cared about us enjoying our experience.

Amazing experience!

We explored 2 dive sites that were amazing. The weather prevented the boat from moving earlier but the crew had dive plans in place just in case. This was my first dive trip that we dove without a guide/dive master. I was very nervous but the dive supervisor planned all the dives and gave very detailed intro’s before the dive started. This trip has sharpened my navigation skills tremendously. The dive masters answered questions without judgement and reviewed basic skills before our first dive. The first night dive was guided which helped. This trip was worth the money and the wildlife/reef was unforgettable.

THIS WAS AWESOME

This was a fantastic experience. This was my first time doing a live aboard dive trip, and my first time diving without a guide. I was SO nervous beforehand, but there was absolutely no need to be. The diving is pretty easy, not too deep, and they go over exactly where to go before the dive. If you ever have any problems, just pop up to the surface and check where you are. No reason to be nervous at all. The crew was fantastic, food is so good and the amount of diving you get in in 3 days is insane. The value for this was unbelievable and I'd recommend anyone to do this!

By far one of the best Liveaboards I have done. The safety of the crew and watchfulness was wonderful. Anything that was needed that you forgot was available to purchase or use for free. Food was wonderful, very tasty but for little kids might be a bit above their level of taste. (No chicken nuggets or peanut butter sandwiches here!) Great diving spots with good information. When we did night dives, someone always led them, although you could go with just your buddy if you wanted or were comfortable. Saw lots of wonderful fish and turtles and even a few sharks!

Great experience but would've been better with a friend or option for guided dives.

This was an incredible trip! My only issue was that one of the crew members wasn't particularly friendly and made some of us feel like we were a burden. Not exactly the best environment to build confidence and learn how to be a better diver... The rest of the crew was AWESOME (shout out to Elena, Shawn, John the captain, Ben and John the advanced instructor). While I'm certified, I didn't feel ready to dive without a guide and was initially paired up with someone else who was just as nervous as me. Thankfully, two experienced divers offered to be my buddies and showed me the ropes (and the reefs). If there's no option to dive with a guide, I think dive buddies should be paired up based on skill level (beginner with someone a little more advanced). Other than that, no complaints! Food was delicious and the overall experience was incredible. Would definitely do it again and will bring a buddy along next time. :)

Precision Operation, Average Dive Sites

Provide pick-up and drop-off services. Food average in quality and quantity. Dive sites average. Diving without dive guide and the need to rely on bearing of compass can be challenging - took away lots of fun when one worries about navigation underwater all the time. Overall good trip to experience how a Liveaboard can be for new divers. The short duration make good break when in Cairns. Value for money as it is not too expensive

Amazing trip, great value!

This was amazing! Usually diving trips for a 2-tank day dive are ~$250 per person but for about $600 per person (USD), we had 11 dives, all our gear, housing and unlimited food. The value was incredible and the experience of diving the Great Barrier Reef for 3 days was truly unforgettable. Pro Dive Cairns also made it very easy as they picked us up and dropped us off before and after the dive trip. At the end we all celebrated at a restaurant/bar. We made new friends, saw wonderful reefs, and made great memories. Highly recommend!

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.

Swimming with turtles in desolate reef. Not crowded at all, just our boat.

Amazing diving with an awesome crew

Saw 6+ turtles overall, several sharks, and nemo! Also enjoyed having the freedom to dive how I wanted to, but with the guidance of the crew on what was the best way/key sites.

Crew moves like a well orchestrated ballet.

Great sites on the reef, making new friends, close encounters with turtles, sharks etc and just being on a nice clean boat relaxing. Food was terrific too!

Absolutely amazing and exceeded my expectations.

1) The staff giving dive briefing was extremely hilarious! He made the briefing so much more fun and enjoyable, at the same time ensuring that we know how to get our way around the sites. 2) The Napolean Wrasse for sure.

Great value for money

What a great trip! Staff was super friendly and professional, especially our dive supervisor Brad, who is super passionate about marine life. Everything on the boat was organized with military precision. Of course there are more spacious and luxurious boats out there, but in terms of value for money I think this one is hard to beat.

Had a fantastic time!

We saw fantastic fish and felt free and safe to explore on our own. However, I always felt that if I was nervous about a dive the guides would be happy to help me out. The detailed dive briefings (including pictures) before we went under were very helpful.

Amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone

This liveabord trip is not luxury, but totally a great value of money. Just the daily routine of dive, eat, sleep, dive, eat, sleep is wonderful enough, yet you have additional bonus of super funny and friendly staff, experienced dive instructors and masters. I made a lot of friends on the boat, I saw sharks almost every dive, it indeed will be unforgettable life time experience for me. I recommend it to everyone that loves diving and enjoys good laugh, and I will totally do it again with scuba pro.

They Run A Tight Ship!

I was happy to see so much healthy coral in lieu of recent environment issues. The cluster of 30 gargantuan humphead parrotfish first thing in the morning. It was a very social and fun live aboard with an outstanding crew.

Good food. Good diving. Great Experience.

I think this is the most finely tuned diving operation we've ever been on. Mark was engaging, informative and overall a pro when it came to dive briefings. The equipment was all great, even the wetsuits which often are suspect when it comes to rentals were all in good condition. The food was great and always in abundance. The diving was varied and it was also plentiful. There were two night dives, a sunrise dive and heaps of interesting things to see along the way. I do want to emphasize the efficiency of how this dive trip operated. We could tell that they have been doing this for a long time, never sacrificing comforts or convenience for the expedited schedule of diving and logistics. Hands down worth every penny. Our only regret is that we did not do the longer package which takes you out to different and perhaps better quality reef systems. Don't think about it. If you want to dive the GBR this is the way to go.

It was a great trip with nice staffs and dive sites.

I get to see many different types of corals. There are also sharks that swim around the boat at night which I get to go in and see up close during night dives.
