Divers Den Team Rock!

The team on this ship make your experience top notch. They work together to ensure their guests are safe and having a great time. The snorkel guides where simply amazing - the calmness and care they demonstrated ( Roman and Yvonne )while guiding a disabled patron was beyond impressive. Our group of 50 that day had the freedom I was looking for, but knew that the team was near to provide any support if required. Captain even stopped the ship for us to watch a humpback whale perform. Great day from a great tour

So close to 5 stars

We have been on many inner and outer reef tours and this is the best run we’ve experienced. The boat is fantastic and the staff, safety and catering sensational. Don’t book through a discount website and expect to add diving easily. Whilst the conditions are now clear, the office staff member was condescending and patronising. A second staff member explained in a professional and friendly manner. It’s a shame to have one poor interaction mar what was otherwise exceptional experience
