Excellent services and unbeatable diving experiences. Dive guides are world-class. Went on a 5 days trips and dove different sites daily. The boat is so stable, no need for sea-sick pill. Enjoyed every moment on the Explorer. Awesome staffs from all over the world, exchanged stories and dive encounters. Excellent food, clean rooms, simply the best.

I am strongly recommending CDC if you want to experience a liveaboard trip to Great Barrier Reef. The crews are nice, helpful and friendly. Rooms are fine. Food is good and the crews are so clear about what and where to see amazing creatures under water.

I can strongly recommend choosing cdc when doing a dive course in Cairns! I did both openwater and adventure certification and I really feel like I can dive on my own now. The stay on the liveaboard boat was most plesent with specially the food. All the volunteers and instructors was nice.

This was our first livaboard trip, we did 2 nights/3 days. I snorkeled and my husband dove. The staff was excellent, the food was excellent, the Kangaroo Explorer was spacious enough for all guests. My only complaint is that there weren't enough wetsuits for the women. There were 4 of us needing the size 2 wetsuit but there was only... More

My friend and I spent the day diving the Great Barrier Reef which was absolutely incredible. First impressions of the day trip seemed great with friendly welcomes and feeling comfortable as soon as we boarded. Once we arrived at the reef, Nari along with other crew got us sorted with equipment before jumping in. He automatically made us feel at... More
