Kat, marine biologist, and Natalie, provide a video-clip identification exploration thru many types of corals, fish, turtles, sharks, clams, etc etc - if you dive or snorkel the Reef, this is a MUST - see/hear.
Worth every single cent of the course fee, I would highly recommend it for anyone planning on diving or snorkeling, whether you are a beginner or pro. 5 stars, two thumbs up and several high fives!

The Falla is an amazing historic boat that does take its leisurely time to get out to the reef but this provides for plenty of time to chat with friendly crew or get to know your other snorkel/dive buddies for the...
You get a pool noodle thing, flippers and snorkel / mask, which makes it very easy to get around and see everything - and there sure is a lot to see!

Amazing experience on this A-class live aboard through the Australian Great Barrier Reef, scuba diving at breathtaking dive spots.
Needless to say, if you're scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, there is great diving to be had, but choosing the right dive boat can be the difference between just great dives and a great experience.

Kudos to the friendly, informative, cheerful and high-spirited all-female crew of Skedaddle, comprising of Kelsey the captain, Leah the first mate, Gabby(my snorkeling guide for that day), Sam and Katherine!
Brilliant idea to have guided snorkel tours - great way to see and learn about our beautiful Barrier Reef - saw so much (and know what I saw) thanks to our guide.

Before boarding I had a chat with Mike Ball, who usually comes to the meet-up if he's in town: highly knowledgeable about scuba diving and most importantly to me a very nice person in general.
Extraordinary experience being able to snorkel within metres of the whales on a daily basis.

A highlight, apart from the pristine waters and unspoiled environment, was the magnificent drift snorkel we did, over magical coral gardens and an awesome array of bommies (large coral outcrops).
This was an amazing day: we had fun, good food, spent time snorkeling and saw lot of amazing underwater life and we did learn a lot and expanded our culture about the barrier reef... all in one day!

One of my favorite things was to hear stories from the crew about some of their favorite dives; they are all so passionate and knowledgeable about scuba diving, it's really fun to see.
Snorkeling was amazing and I will always remember my introductory diving course - Ted took me from fear to stretching beyond of my comfort zone and I am grateful he was so gentle and encouraging with me.

AMAZING views of the reef, and the boat moves spots while you're there so you can snorkel (or dive) in a different part of the GBR each time.
She helped me do 2 intro/resort dives, which were fantastic, and I snorkeled the rest of the time, while my daughter did 10 dives, including 2 night dives, and the initial snorkel session.

On the other day Danny also assisted me to find the best spot to snorkel because it is my first time to snorket.
What a hard worker he is shifting those scuba tanks and also for his constant reassurance.
