There was a terrible older woman on the ship who just yelled the entire time. She made me feel so uncomfortable and awkward that I didn't dive. She came up from her first dive missing one of her three people! The overall feeling of the trip was dirty and unprofessional. I prefer diving safely and calmly.

Dived last Sunday at Cook island with 2 other friends, what truly made this crew a standout was their willingness to help the new divers out. The divers were certified somewhere else but Mel & the crew were more than happy to help them out & spent extra time in the water teaching them to improve their buoyancy. It was... More

Making the reservation and booking was simple enough through their website! When we arrived at their pickup point they picked us up in a mini van and drove us to the scuba shop free of charge. We changed into our scuba gear and they drove us to the boat. Once we got on the boat, the instructor (I can't remember... More

I had never dived before so took advantage of Cooly Dive's 'Discover Scuba Dive' option. Absolutely fantastic. The dive master (sorry, I forget your name!) was outstanding, particularly when I initially struggled with being able to breathe underwater without freaking out! The dive was great, saw some carpet sharks, a multitude of fish and some big turtles. It was such... More

We booked a dive trip to Cook Island as I was keen to visit this marine reserve. We were told to turn up at noon, and since their new address is in South Tweed ahead, I assumed it was NSW time, but they still run on QLD time. As they explained to us, most of their divers come from QLD... More

I love snorkelling and this was great. The crew were helpful and friendly. Saw a few green turtles and many tropical fish. My girls enjoy the muffins and drinks offered. And my husband thought the best part was being lucky enough to watch a whale breaching not too far away - much better then a whale watching tour we went... More

The dive shop was well organised. I think a one tank dive and snorkel is the best bet. Not great coral but still an interesting dive with the wobbegong shark and some turtles. The dive people were fantastic but the water was freezing. You need at least a 5 mm wet suit and this was in December. I did know... More

My husband and I traveled to Australia in May of this year (2013). Since we had never been scuba diving before, we decided to do the "Try Scuba Diving" option offered by Cooly Dives. We were going to visit the Great Barrier Reef later in the trip and decided that we'd rather find out that we didn't like diving earlier... More
