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

Good operation, friendly staff and knowledgable crew. Hire gear excellent. Relaxing trip out, lovely scenery. Interesting dive sight with a mixture of temperate and tropical fish. Also saw lots of wobbiegongs, moray eels, crayfish, crabs, nudis, turtles and anemones.

Great morning diving. Saw turtles, sharks, octopus and many other marine life, all within a few minutes from the Tweed River bar. The crew were efficient and helpful and cater for divers of all levels of experience.

Recently (a week ago), my daughter and I went out snorkeling with Cooly Dive/Snorkel Safari and had a wonderful day. I'm not one to normally write reviews but we really enjoyed this day. We were scheduled/booked to go the week before and we were taking the city bus from Gold Coast to their location (45 mins?) and unfortunately we missed... More
