As much as I enjoyed doing my first ever dive, and seeing the great sights of the reef, I felt the company as a whole should have been more professional. Most of the staff were very rude, particularly the photographer who was charging extortionate amounts, lunch was badly organised but the biggest issue was the overcrowding of the boat. There...

Booked a 3 day live aboard with them, and i regret it! Same high price as Pro Dive, but not at all the quality you would expect with that price. Boat for the first dives was extremely overcrowded to the limit where i feels that the safety was in jeopardy, and the dive-experience was bad. At the second dive because... More

2nd trip out to the reef for diving, first trip with this company. Was well organised and very safety conscious. I chose to pay for a guided dive and well worth the extra cost. $15 a dive. Our Guide Adam made sure we were safe and took us around the reef and showed us as much marine life as possible... More

I booked a 6 day open water + advanced open water course with deep sea divers which included 3 nights on the liveaboard boat "oceanquest". I was lucky to be in a small group and our instructor Daniel was awesome. He was very professional and helpful throughout. The first 2 days were the theory and pool sessions which were fun... More

I was disappointed with the dive sites Deep Sea Divers took us to. If you've been diving on the Whitsunday Islands, or in Asia, you've probably seen better! Some fish, and coral but nothing that 'wowed' me, certainly no turtles or sharks. I think the only thing 'tropical' on the 'tropical lunch buffet' was the pineapple! Other than that its... More

Cannot thank this amazing company enough!! Since a child I have been petrified of deep water and even putting my head under due to nearly drowning but the amazing team helped me to overcome my fears and have the best experience of my life!

Great diving experience, friendly staff, excellent instructors (My wife took the Advanced Open Water). The experience is all about the dives. The boat is well set up and comfortable. The staff is incredibly friendly and the food is good comfort food. So... why not five??? Well, the first 2 dives are from the "transfer boat", which is really a day... More

I had a blast doing my course here. The actual classroom stuff is a bit dry but it's not their faults. The people were knowledgable and helpful and the actual facility was pretty awesome. Their Liveaboards were amazing, I literally had the best time while diving with these guys.
