Very nice trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

Mostly just diving at another wonderful place in the world and a world-famous sure. Just saw one little part of the GBR so there’s plenty more for more trips and experiences. Corals seemed in very good shape to a non-expert like me and so glad to see zero rubbish of any kind in the water. Plenty of Reef life and loads of fish. Huge clams!

Amazing experience!! Highly recommended!

*the diving of course! It was absolutely beautiful and the sites really allowed you to see the variety of life and colors of the reef *the crew was awesome! Not only were they super kind and professional, but they knew when to have fun too. *we learned to self-navigate!!! I was a little worried about this at first but really enjoyed learning a new skill and feeling more comfortable under water! Plus we were given great instructions! * we felt safe and well taken care of the entire time! This operation is well oiled machine and everything ran super smoothly! Thanks again everyone on scuba pro lll, we had an amazing time with you all!

A fantastic experience where we could safely enjoy the incredible scenery with a perfect crew

The coral gardens, where the snorkelers could really enjoy as much as the divers, we snorkeled with turtles while the divers met a shark! It was a gorgeous dive site, it was like flying over gardens.

Gorgeous dive sites, perfect safety and incredibly fresh food!

Lovely atmosphere, dive sites quite limited

Good points: Quality of crew was excellent: clear dive instructions, plenty of suggestions on things to find and see, safety in the water, how to protect the reef, especially how to limit your impact on night dives! Easy enough to jump into a guided group without extra charge, or decide to do a certificate. Strong focus on safety and responsibility. With the crew and your fellow live-pboards right out of the harbour, so great opportunity to get to know everyone, have a constant buddy on dives and build a group rapport - I think nearly everyone went out for food/drinks on our return day! High quality equipment, team worked hard to ensure everything ready for you. Points for improvement: Living quarters a little cramped, no towel supplied; dive sites had less varied marine life compared to other live-aboards (to a point this can't be helped, however). Overall, I would stay on ScubaPro/use Pro-Dive again and would recommend them as a great live-aboard option!
