During your training you get the chance to see the whitehaven beach and do some nice cruises around the whitsunday islands. The boat offers plenty of space and is quite comfortable compared to others. All the staff are very friendly, professional and helpful! Thanks to Tracy, Alex and Glenn for the good time.

We booked to go on this trip to the inner reef at the whitsundays and also the outer Great Barrier Reef(outer with a different company). We had been advised by a friend to do both and I'm glad we did. The inner reef has very different coral and we saw lots of different fish too. We were worried that after... More

The whole day, fom start to finish, was such a treat. Laughing and safety were the order of day. As a novice snorkeller I felt really safe and had an amazing two and a half hours floating around blue pearl bay. That was just a small part of the whole experience and I would highly recommend this trip. Thank you... More

I did a trip with Mantaray recently and I had the time of my life. From pickup to drop off the staff were friendly and professional. I came on the trip as a single certified diver, so as an experienced diver, I was apprehensive that I would be chosen to buddy with a less experience individual. To my relief, Mantaray... More

We did the trip on Mantaray last week and had a fantastic day out! From the pick up in the morning to the drop off at night the staff were amazing, super friendly and accommodating! It's a real bonus to be able to take in the beautiful sights of Whitehaven beach and then be taken to some amazing dive and... More

Booked my advanced open water course with the Mantaray and man was I in for a treat. Me and my girlfriend were told we'd go out on 2 consecutive days with the boat and complete 5 dives. What we didn't know was that we got a free trip to Whitehaven beach, which was a great surprise, such a beatiful beach.... More

We did this trip Yesterday and for $700 we got a basic lunch. The backpackers gorge on the food so try and get in first. Wanted our kids to do an introductory dive but were told that no spots available. Both wife and I are Certified Divers, but they had 2 staff looking after 2 certified divers that were clueless....

We did this trip a couple of days ago and we are still really disappointed with the service that this company provided us. We decide to write the comment so the people is not going to waste the money and if the company see this, then hopefully they will do something about it... We paid almost 200 pp and we... More
