Absolutely brilliant I booked with deep sea divers den, online before I went to the barrier reef. I had a few questions after booking was completed and I emailed the customer services, who replied to me very promptly (considering the time difference between them and the uk). Very friendly staff who knew the answers to all my questions. On the... More

Absolutely enjoyed the trip with these extremely professional and friendly staff. I did an advanced OW course as well, with a 3 day, 2 night package, and both the dive masters and instructors are very experienced and friendly people, making the whole trip experience one of the most memorable and fun to be on. The Ocean Quest live-aboard ship is... More

From the time we were picked up at the hotel, this experience was marred by very poor communication from staff. I was very excited to dive on the Great Barrier Reef, and so disappointed in the way this company handled everything. Some context: I'm an Advanced Open Water diver--more than 100 dives. Traveled from the US to finally check this... More

I completely loved my day out on board seaquest. Even saw humpback whales as an added bonus. Brilliant dive sites at troppos and Sandra's on Norman reef. Saw so many fish, Maori wrasse, clown fish, snapper, batfish, also turtles, sea cucumbers and Christmas worms. Brilliant scuba diving instruction from Kate who was incredibly knowledgable about everything dive and marine related.... More

Since I started diving, The Cod Hole and Minke whales has been on my bucket list. Finally, in June this year, I got the opportunity to do both! Booking with Deep Sea Divers Den was easy and pleasant. We were transferred from the office to the boat, and had chosen the standard accommodation. This was two bunks in a small... More

We went out on the Taka with Deep Sea Divers Den for 4 days. My husband and I dove and our 2 kids ages 11 and 13 snorkeled. The dive spots were great and we did get to see the Dwarf Minke Whales, which was incredible. The crew were very professional and extremely accommodating and gave a very thorough dive... More

I did a one day tour to the reef and did an intro dive. The dive itself lasted only about a half an hour because you have to do so much stuff at the beginning of the dive to make sure you are comfortable down there. Then the instructor took as about 8m deep where we waited for everyone from... More

They have trainers speaking cantonese, mandarin and Japanese as well. So good, enthusiastic and energetic staff. Our trainers Jim Wong and Laura, treated us very nicely. But really dizzy when taking the ride through the big waves!

I went on the boat with them as often as I could while I lived in Cairns. Great people on the boat and in the water. Very concerned about my safety diving. Came up with not enough air one time and they didn't let me dive that afternoon. I couldn't be mad at that since it was my fault. Food... More
