Went on a day trip on the 15th and had a great time. The dive instructor (I'm pretty sure his name is Rob) was fantastic. He took my boyfriend and I on our first dive and we found him to be so professional, clear and on the ball. I felt safe in his hands and he made our time on... More

Went out on a day trip aboard Reefkist and had a good time snorkelling and an intro dive. The atmosphere was relaxed but professional with a good crew and dive team and the two reef spots chosen were great. Highly recommend the intro dive even if you were really bad at it like I was. My only comment for Reefkist... More

Great team, unfortunately only got one dive site for the whole day even though we booked two. Food and amenities were better than expected with friendly staff catering to any requests.

With CDC the option is available to work as a volunteer and obtain an extended stay on the Kangaroo Explorer. Firstly this is a budget operation more suited to backpackers etc as far as accommodation and vessel goes, but the attractions on the reef visited are the same as the more expensive local trips. It is great value and I... More

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.
