Wonderful snorkel adventure with experienced team

Very smooth day out on the water! Crew knew exactly what they were doing and very personable. We did snorkeling only and we saw everything we could have wanted to see. One of the perks of the experience was that they had a LOVELY professional underwater photographer who captured some amazing images of us. Very unique and will be special memories that we will treasure. Thanks again :)

Fantastic day

My son 13 and I booked this at the last min and had the best day. Could not complain about anything. We we're lucky weather was perfect, water temp was perfect. We went to 2 dive sites. We only snorkelled but still got to see everything, lots of fish and coral. Very comfortable boat and the staff were really helpful. I would recommend it for young to old

Birthday present trip

Enjoyed our trip yesterday. Staff were helpful when needed, equipment and boat well maintained and not too big a group. Would go again.

Very disappointing

Actually less than one start. I just had a great barrier reef today with them. I was at the vassel at 8 am as they told us on emails before and no one was there, neither an office to ask, the phone office works after 10 am so neither that option to ask what was going on with our trip. After asked in all other vassels at the marina and guys from other companies, we found a guy who works for that company in other vassel running a different tour, that advised us the reef tour wasn't running today, no one call us, we have to wait until 10 am to speak with someone who explain us what happened. This is very disappointing.

Hi Marcela I'm sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience. I have spoken with our reservations team who have advised that they did try call on several occasions but were unable to reach you on the number supplied in your booking. We are doing the best we can in these unprecedented times and, unfortunately, had to cancel that trip on the 11th March due to circumstances out of our control. Again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Warm regards The Team at Divers Den

Competent crew and structure! Such a fun day.

The crew made us few confident to dive, very friendly and attentive to everyone. Good food and structure. Staff explained everything about the corals while snorkeling. Extremely happy with my choice!
