I signed up for my 4 day 3 night open water and advanced diving certification not knowing anything about scuba diving or really what to expect. Deep Sea Divers Den blew any expectations I did have out of the water. :) The staff were so friendly and their passion for diving was easily spread on to me and everyone else... More

I signed up for 1-night on the Ocean Quest and added another night because I've had such a wonderful time with the lovely people on the great Ocean Quest. We moved through 4 different diving sites in the 3 days. The gear was extremely well maintained (very important in these types of trips) and nothing was ever missing. The food... More

This was simply amazing. I hate the sea, hate boats and very reluctantly agreed to accompany my husband and 2 kids, aged 9&14 on the Ocean Quest live aboard. It was the highlight of our family round the world trip. The staff is amazing and run and very smooth operation, taking guests out on their a day boat before transferring... More

We spent 5 days diving Norman and Saxon reefs about 40 km offshore on the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. I get to dive a lot of dive vessels each year in Australia and abroad and I can honestly say Ocean... More

I have always wanted to dive on the reef and now was the perfect time. Divers Den had been recommended to us as a great day out. It was a little bit more, cost wise than the other trips, but in my opinion it was well worth it. An intro dive is included in the cost and you can pay... More
