    Bucket list trip met our expectations! 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Wednesday Departure), Australia in December

    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.

    Glad I made this choice 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Wednesday Departure), Australia in July

    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!

    Great Experience! 3 Day Great Barrier Outer Reef (Saturday Departure), Australia in December

    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!

    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.
