Fabulous day on the reef. Enthusiastic and informative staff made the day an absolute delight. The reef itself is amazing. The service, food and attention detail puts this reef adventure in a class of its own.

Staff at our resort highly recommended poseidon if we wanted a intimate dive expierence! At first I was worried it was going to still be commercialized, as the friendly staff picked us up from resort it was the start of the best day ever! I personally expierenced the whole three scuba dives. Each dive I became more confident and excited thanks to our instructors dan and boadie who made it the most enjoyable safe day for my girlfriend and myself! Buffet lunch was awesome and all staff on boat! Thanks for the top day guys will recommend to everyone! Matt and Aimee

We were advised to go on the Poseidon by the owner of our hotel, who is also a scuba diver, best advice it turned out to be too. We were made to feel very welcome, It had been 5 years since my last scuba dive and was worried about being rusty, we were put into groups of 5 with equal ability and experience, our dive master Kevin was totally brilliant, he put us at ease and went through everything with us before we took to the water. He was my dive buddy and looked after me so well, we had the best time, he pointed out everything to us and gave us an amazing dive on the reef. The food on board was amazing, the staff were totally brilliant. I would advise anyone going out on a reef trip from Port Douglas, to go with the Poseidon. Could not fault it.
