I had nothing short of an amazing time on the kangaroo explorer. Asides from being in the great barrier reef surrounded by the beautiful nature, i had also the best company. The crew were all very friendly and very passionate about their jobs which all adds up to an insane experience. Food on board was a killer too. All in... More

Coming from a 12 year old, I found the experience of learning to dive something I will never forget. The staff were so nice and helpful. The reef was amazing and so was the boat. No one does a better job then CDC. Can't wait to go on again and explore even more of the reef. It has been the... More

One of the most enjoyable trips I had in years, lovely scenery, slow trip to enjoy the view and just above the canopy of trees... worth going anyway- up or down.

The boat is a little tired but that was not what we were interested in. We got to visit two... More

So, we chose to go to the outer reef with CDC on the ReefKist. The crew were lovely, but, the boat is old, tired and dirty. The food was OK. The equipment seemed old too. My husband's snorkel leaked, but was eventually fixed with a cable-tie. His mask strap also kept coming loose. By the time he had got these... More

We were really well looked after, good weather, good crew, just heaps of fun all... More

I did my advanced diving course with them and it was really nice. I stayed in the Kangoroo explorer for 3 days and 2 nights. All the staff are really nice and friendly, what makes a huge difference! The food is amazing! While I was there I didn't want to leave at all. There was only two things I think... More
