I've dived around the world but have just had my first dives on the Great Barrier Reef, with Jay. If you're staying in Port Douglas Jay provides a door to door service, with pick ups and drop offs. We started with breakfast at the Marina (Lure is a great cafe/bar) and the onto one of the larger faster boats that gets to the outer reef and back in a day. The service and people on Calypso were great.
To the diving, and photos - when you hire Jay to take you diving you don't just get a first class diver who really knows the sites you're diving on, you also get a first class photographer who will create some of the best photographic memories you'll ever have. I dived with Jay for two days (6 dives) and he found interesting coral and fish life on every dive. He knew exactly where to find true clown fish for example. You really don't need to do much work either if you don't want to - Jay makes sure the gear is all prepared for you for every dive, and in-between times he was good company, and very knowledgeable about the reef and it's rich aquatic life.
I haven't dived with other Port Douglas guides, but having been with Jay I will certainly search him out next time I'm back. A great experience and a well earned 10/10 as well as 5 stars.
