We just returned from an overnight trip and would turnaround and do it again! We loved everything!!! We are a group of four beginner divers (two adults and two teenagers) and we could not have had a better experience - the captain and dive instructor were knowledgeable, helpful and great company! The equipment is really well looked after and the boat is comfortable. We saw truly amazing things, learned something that we hadn’t tried before and even managed a night dive. Indescribably good. Do yourself a favour - explore the reef with these guys. It was amazing.

So lovely to experience the Great Barrier Reef in its many moods from sunset to dawn as well as in brilliant sunshine. Snorkeling around Michaelmas Cay at 8.00 in the morning I saw the reef in soft lighting and had an altogether different experience of this magical place. Thanks so much to the Captain, Jan, and Vanessa who both made my two days on the reef such a marvellous trip. The food was great and finishing the day with a glass of red wine watching the sunset over the blue water is a memory I will have forever! My bed was very comfortable and I slept well waking up to a beautiful ocean sunrise. Weather was calm and the feeling of spending the night so far from land brought a sense of peace and serenity. Lots of giant clams at Michaelmas Cay, turtles, lots of different fish and stingrays. Best of all I had plenty of time to swim with the fish and take photos. The whole trip felt like an adventure. We had the sails up coming back into Cairns to complete the maritime journey. My soul is replenished! I am back on land planning my next reef venture. Thanks again everyone for all your care and attention during the trip. Cheers, Maria.

We took this amazing trip with our 3 teenage sons. They are new divers and we could not have asked for a better first real dive trip experience. Every detail is thought of from equipment to instruction with plenty of time built in for some snorkeling as well. The night dive was incredible and a must do! The captain , dive instructor and crew take everyone’s skill level into consideration in planning each dive and we all felt completely safe the entire time. Sleeping on a boat in the middle of the Coral Sea is an incredible experience. We can’t recommend this trip enough and thank Roman and Teddy for making this experience one that exceeded all of our expectations!
