Fantastic first live aboard which exceeded my expectations

The corals were in better condition than expected given all the news we have heard about bleaching. Although some dives were shallow, they were some of the best dives with great swim throughs, abundant fish life and colourful corals.

Amazing Value, Great Crew, Clean and Efficient!!

This trip was seamless! The crew is efficient, clean, and knowledgeable. The ship always felt clean and the cabins were large enough, considering we were in confined quarters. The food was also always hot and delicious, as well as varied. Always felt safe and taken care of on board. Thanks, everyone!!!

My first Liveaboard trip was a fantastic experience!

This was my first trip to Australia and diving on the GBR was a "bucket list" item for me. The Liveaboard with ScubaPro III was my first liveaboard experience and I know I made the best choice. The boat was clean and comfortable, the staff were awesome and the diving was great. I took the opportunity to upgrade my dive license to Advanced open water while on board which was really a great value as well and my instructor was the best! Safety and fun on the boat were definitely a focus and all of the boat staff made sure that everyone was clear and comfortable with our dive plans prior to each dive. We did 11 dives over 3 days which gave a great variety of when we were in the water (early morning, midday and night dives) that I had previously not experienced. The night dives I was nervous about but they actually turned out to be my favorites. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is interested in a true diving experience and in meeting people from around the world. Craig (Canada)

Great dive trip

This was my first time on an overnight dive boat and it didn’t disappoint. We did 4 dives a day including 2 night dives. The water clarity was good and there was plenty to see. I was impressed with the staff who went out of their way to make sure I had something to eat at each meal because I’m vegan.

I really loved this 3 days trip! A great experience that must be tried!..the beauty of the SeaWorld is astonishing....corals, hips of fishes and then you have a really free will in the water with ProDive, they give you advice and warn you for possible accident that may occur during the dive,( completely safe by the way) showing a detail map of the site and what s the best track to follow , then everything you could find if you watch carefully!!...don forget the go pro and the cruise will be perfect!..meet new friends.. have a chat with a coffe, create a group with your buddy before to get in the water again for an amazing dive!!... I'll recommend this cruise guys....all the best!!!

Unforgettable

The entire trip was a highlight for me. The guys at Pro Dive and liveaboard kept me so well informed from my initial enquiry to the moment I was dropped back at my hotel. Our dive master, Raphael, had a wonderful knowledge of the reef and his love and enthusiasm for it was a real pleasure to be able to share in. The whole pro dive team shared this enthusiasm and knowledge and were all so hard working and helpful, efficient but with a real sense of fun. Anyone considering diving the Great Barrier Reef should put their dreams in the hands of these guys, it would be a safe bet and will leave you with memories that will last you a lifetime. Thanks to all at liveaboard and pro dive, hope to see you again soon.

Review ProDive

Very good diving with your company. Although the water temperature is this time of the year too cold to wear only a shorty (August 22th). Your company could not provide me a longsuit. Luckily I had my own boots and I could borrow a hat. It was a pitty because now our dive lasted a maximum of 40 minutes because it was too cold to stay longer in.

Great Barrier Reef Should be re-named Pretty Good Barrier Reef

Was good, best deal for dives though I don't understand Australia dive companies not providing DMs to lead dives (only place in the world this is done that I've seen), visitors always miss out on the details when diving a new place-not to mention safety issues. The boat is good, crew is good, equipment is well kept, plenty of food, rare that wifi was available, big plus for that. Ifpeople are coming to Cairns I have reviewed and recommended they use ProDive and ScubaPro2.
