I just had to get back on the Great Barrier Reef once again! It was more than two years since my last visit to Australia, and I was eager to get into the water at the first opportunity.

I went on a 3D2N dive trip on ocean quest in Dec 14. It was a fantastic trip. Having gotten my open waters license 2 years ago and not having done any dives since then, I was truly a terror to my dive guides, having no recollection of the underwater skills at all. Many thanks to my awesome and patient... More

Such good value for money! Really good lunch and really friendly staff! The captain let myself and a friend steer the boat and we had a really lovely conversation with him.

I was a first time scuba diver, and a bit apprehensive, but the staff were awesome. Very patient, comprehensive, professional and friendly. Made you feel secure and at ease. This was an amazing day trip and a great way to explore the Great Barrier Reef.

Wonderful crew, terrific food and even better diving. The Great Barrier Reef was fantastic, and staying on the boat for 3 days allowed me to see a lot of great dive sites.
