The manager was pretty rude for starter. She was a typical ........, Literally started shouting and telling us to leave the office. We were told that we would dive and snorkel prior to the booking. But the staff just left us on the beach with snorkelling tools and advise they did not had enough diving instructors on board to help... More

We even saw turtles when snorkelling!! 🐢 A friend told me that it's better to go with these smaller companies when wanting good snorkelling/diving in Airlie Beach as the bigger companies go to the...
