This experience rates as possibly one of the best in my entire life !!! I will start off by saying my wife and I opted to do the 2 day course to obtain an open water divers ticket so there was a lot of work to do and understandibly not much time to enjoy underwater but as I say, we were doing a course with an exam at the end of it.
I can tell you that the dive instructor Florian was one of the best instructors I have come across in any course I have done and I highly recommend him.
My wife and I found him to be very proffessional and extremely knowledgable and with 5000 dives under his belt I could think of no one else to put my life in the hands of underwater, his knack of relaxing you in stressful situations is unmatched anywhere as far as I am concerned.
If you intend to do the course make sure you can swim 200 mtrs and tread water for 10 minutes and have reasonable fitness otherwise you won't pass. Having said that, you don't have to be superman, I myself am not all that fit :)
If you don't intend to do the course there are other options that Florian will more than happily help you out with.
Whitsunday dives hook up with the "Mantaray" boat that takes you to your location with "Cookie" as the Skipper, we found cookie to was very knowledgable and very helpful.
Plenty of snacks, salad wraps, biscuits and coffee/tea are offered aboard and you wont go hungry. All gear is supplied you will want for nothing, the boat is very roomy with good seating and tables and overhead cover to keep you out of the sun and there is a toilet on board.
Florian from the dive centre or his lovely wife will pick you up and drop you off in a courtesy bus if transport is a drama.
I cannot rate this entire experience highly enough, we are already planning our next trip and it will be with no one else other than Florian at Whitsunday dive centre.
