Fair value trip

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)!

You get what you pay for

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
