A friend and I visited the reef today with CDC. We have done snorkelling all the way up the coast including in the whitsundays and this was by far the best snorkelling we have had. Also included in our price was a free intorductory dive. Neither of us have dived before and we we're very much lookign forward to it as well as being a bit nervous. Our instructor, Lee, was very welcoming and was funny as well as informative, which put us both and i'm sure everyone, at ease. Then it was time for our dive! All the crew were very helpful which meant we were in the water as quick as possible which meant we had the most time possible down in the depths. We loved every minute of it and we're just mesmorised by the underwater world! It may not have been the best place to dive in the reef but as a first time diver I coudln't fault it one bit. Lee was very good underwater constantly checking everything was okay which was good to know we we're in safe hands!
We then had plenty of time after our dive to explore with the snorkel. They didn't rush anyone to get out the water so they could get on with the day it was al nice and relaxed which we found good. The snorkelling was FAB! saw loads of cool creatures and fish, but unfortunately not turtles or sharks but hey ho!
Lunch was next and there was plenty of it and was all very nice, as well as a good selection. Cold meat sandwiches, pasta dish, a rice dish, lots of salad and plenty of biscuits!
We then moved to a second diving spot, we only snorkelled but again it was amazing and even better than the first spot.
Would highly recommend as the staff are all very welcoming and nice and the diving (especially for a beginner) was just amazing and a very good price for people backpacking like us!
Thank you CDC!!
