    Great Family Experience

    We have done all the alternatives in the past but this is by far the best. Less people means more interaction with the staff. Looked after us all the way ensuring we all got the most out of our day.

    Wonderful snorkel adventure with experienced team

    Very smooth day out on the water! Crew knew exactly what they were doing and very personable. We did snorkeling only and we saw everything we could have wanted to see. One of the perks of the experience was that they had a LOVELY professional underwater photographer who captured some amazing images of us. Very unique and will be special memories that we will treasure. Thanks again :)

    Loved it!

    Great day out on the reef - so glad we chose Divers Den/AquaQuest! Easy booking through Book Me, really efficient as we only booked a day ahead. Everything on the tour was so organised from the pick up at our accommodation all the way to the drop off at the end of the day! Great new & clean boat and we only had a small group (~30) . Crew we friendly and great with everyone. Good safety measures followed at all times. Plenty of time on the reef snorkelling, great lunch and a fantastic day! Highly recommend.
