They were very helpful, rented stinger suits, snorkel gear, Kayak, boat tour etc. Provided everything needed on-site for multiple days and multiple activities. Would loved to have a dive shop shirt, but they only has smalls in-stock, no mediums, larges, etc.

Dive shop staff very helpful and prices so cheap it’s crazy - get snorkels flippers and wet suits for next to nothing and very obliging if a few minutes late returning them. Can also hire kayaks which are easy to use and fun.

We started with a lovely sail to the outer reef, where the professional and friendly crew organized two rich dives at Briggs Reef. We booked an overnight stay on the lovely Fitzroy island, which turned out to be a real paradise. On the same evening,...More

The young staff told us briefly about the boat to the outer reef but as they were very busy had little time to chat. Paid and left. Not much wiser but trip was fine! ??
