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!

Fantastic experience

Overall a fantastic experience. It was my first liveaboard experience and delivered beyond expectations. The diving was fantastic. The dive briefings were clear and comprehensive, and the sites selected were magnificient and varied with beautiful corals and a wide variety of sea life. The equipment was great quality, easy to organise and many different size options to select from. The food was fantastic. The chef (Angus) did an excellent job, and was very accommodating to people's food preferences. The boat was very clean, and the accommodation basic (as expected for the price), but very clean and comfortable. We had fantastic weather which made the trip out to the reef and 2 nights on the reef very comfortable.

You're here to DIVE, not Cruise!!!

If you're intent is to dive the reef and are not looking for luxury amenities onboard the boat, then this is your live aboard. One of the most professional & fun PADI dive crews that I have ever had the experience of diving with. Thanks to the Captain, Johnnie, Tami, Terri, Angus & Sean. If I missed anyone I apologize, you guys were great!!!

Great Experience!

I was told other liveabroads in GBR keep their boats out there and just get speed boats to go pick you up at cairns. This means that the ride there could be very choppy, and that you may always see different crew members or guests throughout your trip which is something I don't like. I enjoyed not being rushed when getting ready to dive. All the dives are generally straightforward. Be aware that most of the dives are self guided (guided optional) . I was apprehensive about that at first, but it ended up being pretty easy to navigate and i feel like i've become a more experienced divers because of it. Ammenities are basic. Towels are not provided (although i really wish at least one were provided per person). Food is ok, nothing special. Boat is kept clean. If you want to experience GBR, this is a good Live-abroad to go to!

1. The boat has the same people throughout the trip. There are no drop in guests who only come for a day, and take a speed boat back. 2.The facilities were actually kept very clean. 3.Very Chill Crew

How can you not give this 5 stars?!

The food! - The efforts of the ships cook were just wonderful. She even went out of her way to make a birthday cake for one of the passengers on board. The crew - I cannot stress enough how awesome the crew was! Helpful, fun, funny, and kind. They worked their butts off to ensure everyone had an awesome time. The reef - How can you not appreciate the great sights of the barrier reef. It was really an amazing experience :) Would do this again with Pro Dive Cairns in a second! HUGE Thank you to everyone!

Glad I made this choice

Lots of opportunity for dives at great locations. They really help you out with your gear and getting everything set up and getting in the water. There are new divers which will stay out of the way of more experienced divers. Awesome crew and divemasters on board. Very funny guys! The reef was in good condition where they took us with limited bleaching at this point. Very cool animals, chance for great photos. I feel like I got a Classic GBR experience. The cook could have used some more experience making things that were actually tasty, but we didn't go hungry. Comfortable cabins, usable bathrooms. Everything went well!

It was a diving trip and the diving was the highlight, we saw tons of life everywhere on the reef and many of the fish and turtles too were not concerned by our presence so we were able to get very close at times.

This was our first live aboard trip and overall it was an excellent experience. The number of dives and the location was outstanding. The first dive was a disappointment but they kept getting better and better. Water visibility wasn't the best but it was still an excellent experience. The dive guide provided excellent overviews of the dives and offered several options for people with varying levels of experience. We would definitely do it again.
