Wich is a shame when you travel with only one or two swimming suit and one towel and they get throw away like this.... More

I had an amazing time over the weekend on Taka. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and plentiful, and most importantly the dive sites were for the most part top notch. Taka Range and Steve's Bommie in particular were standouts. I was a bit disappointed in the Cod Hole, probably only because it had been... More

This was my first experience in the great barrier reef and i was scared cause i was gonna learn how to do scuba diving. Since the begginning of the trip the crew was very polite. The scuba diving instructor was very patient and explained us everything in detail. When the moment of the inmersion came they were next to us... More

It's interesting how many of these reviews are quite polarized. I'd say my experience of the 3 day/2 night open water PADI course was mixed. The classroom/pool teaching was average, often feeling quite rushed. I think overall our classroom/pool instructor, did a competent and professional job. My single biggest complaint on the boat was our dive instructor (Taku?). His English... More

About 2 weeks ago my partner and I joined the crew from Deep Sea Divers Den on TAKA for 4 nights and 3 days jammed packed full of diving at Cod hole and the Ribbon reefs, an amazing experience that will be hard to forget. We were originally booked in for the 3 day trip on Ocean Quest but at... More

The Great Barrier Reef will be amazing regardless of wat company you choose. However my issues with the trip were the only food that was provided on the trip was the meals. There were no snacks after dives unlike other dive trips I've been on. They did sell snacks but I was already paying a lot to dive. I was... More

On a 3 day live aboard, they lost my custom made wetsuit and they did not have one to fit me even though they assured me they did before the trip (they tried to talk me out of brining my own but there would have been NO diving if I has listened to them). I missed a third of the... More

I did the 2 days/1 night trip with my boyfriend and that was awesome! I'll totally advice you to spend at least this amount of time because on just one day you'll be frustrated (the one-day boat is very crowded). All the reefs were beautiful, we just snorkeled and I think it's enough because the corals are visible from the... More

We just got back from a great trip on the Taka. The weather did not cooperate at all, but the good spirit of the crew and the group of 28 or so awesome divers on the boat more than made up for it. On the 4th day, with the weather at it's worst (breaking a mooring line even), the Minke... More
