I had a very good time on the day tour! I didn't expect to see so many different spaces of fish and explanation about them. I also did an intro dive witch was very nice.

We were so lucky! The company we had actually booked with messed up but managed to rebook us with deep sea divers! We went out the first day after the cyclone and so the live-aboard was in the harbor and we didn't need to go out with the small ship! What a great time! There were about 50 people on... More

Did a two night liveaboard trip and absolutely loved it. The transfer boat is a bit crowded but you are on the liveaboard shortly after lunch and it is well worth it. A great boat for liveaboard diving and a great crew that will go above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience on the reef. Tons... More

I am posting this review again as it was removed, despite not breaking any terms and conditions of the site. As an experienced rescue diver who has dived in the Maldives, Red Sea and Mauritius this is the worst dive company I have ever used, with minimum emphasis on safety. This coming from someone who actually certified with them many... More

Hi Adam, It is unfortunate to read your review of the events that occurred on OceanQuest during your stay. In our opinion, your recollection of these events are inaccurate, and I received an email from you stating that if we did not meet your demands (despite our explanations) then you would write this review on Tripadvisor. One of our crew... More

If you wish to be packed in a tin like sardines, this trip is for you. Not enough seating or room. Some crew are great but others seem as though they need a new job.

A friend and I came to Cairns to dive on the Great Barrier Reef and booked a two night live aboard with Deep Sea Divers Den. The first two dives are off of their smaller Sea Quest boat, which was absolutely packed full. Trying to get off the dive deck was a challenge because it was so overcrowded. This is... More

I spent two days diving on Cairns with Divers Den and can tell that everything was perfect. The staff is amazing, really comfortable boat and excellent gear. I made my advanced certification with Josh and he was extremely patient, with total knowledge of diving skills. All instructors are really well trained and make divers feel relaxed to enjoy the nature... More

Overall we had a pretty good time on our one day snorkelling tour! The barrier reef is unbelievably beautiful and is an absolute must see for any trip to Oz. The snorkelling on this trip was great but we weren't really given enough time- we went to 2 locations and didn't have long enough to properly explore. The company is... More

Our trip with Deep Sea Divers Den was definitely the highlight of our trip. We decided to do the 1 day Intro Scuba Diving trip. We ended up choosing to do the 3 dives. In hindsight, we agreed that 2 dives and snorkeling the rest of the time would be more than enough. However, we did all agree that the... More
