Used Aore dive and have done this twice now. Great wreck to dive. Gear was new and boat well maintained with all the right emergency gear. Paul knows his stuff.

For a first-time diver, this dive spot provided excellent diving for all open-water training and more than enough sights for further investigation. In total I had approximately four dives with Allan Power Dive Tours. The night dives are not to be missed!

It's a massive ship. The dive starts quite deep. Make sure that you book several dives since you might not be allowed too deep inside on your first few dives.

Loved the stern and the lady. Coral Quays Dive resort have some excellent leaders which can show you around the wreck.

What a great wreck dive. It far exceeded my expectations. My only gripe is that our holiday wasn't long enough to do more dives down there. The tanks, the jeeps, the personal belongings still onboard are really a step back in time. Very interesting.

came here a few years ago and had a great time. This time was no different, there is so much to see on the wreck from medical supplies, to barbers chair to aircraft drop tanks. The diving is all deep and deco stops are a must, but as they are dome amongst the reefs they pass quickly. You are gradually... More

One of the classic "bucket list" dives. My wife (experienced diver) did one dive and loved it. I did two dives and loved it too. My daughter (recently certified) did two dives and raves about them -- jeeps, electric clams, barbers chairs, drop tanks, etc. What more can be said? The dives were with Aore Adventure Sports and Lodge. Paul... More
