    An absolute highlight of one of our days chasing waterfalls. Josephine Falls is crystal clear, so unbelievably clean and has a safe and bigger swimming spot at the bottom. Set yourself up on the rocks and you can stay for hours in the shade. There is a fun natural rock slide into the pool as well as a rope swing.

    They are very professional and we all enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately, we could not go into the river because of heavy rain yesterday, we could go into the rain forest

    Very well run place by management. I had an issue with a staff members not honouring the free second hour promotion. I contacted them through fb and they were very apologetic, professional and dealt with it superbly. People need to remember that these things can happen with young staff and it usually only takes a quick conversation to correct. Don't jump to early conclusions based on one issue. My son had a great time both times we went (second was complimentary to make up for issue).

    We done the 'Best of both worlds' trip. Would highly recommend booking this trip if your in Cairns for a few days. We had an amazing tour guide called Jamie, she was engaging and very knowledgeable about everything that we did on the trip. We done the trip as a couple, ideal for couples, solo travelers and groups.

    Visited with a G Adventures tour. From start to finish this experience was exceptional. Staff incredibly knowledgable and helpful. Planned to snorkel, but decided to scuba at both stops instead - the briefing, kitting up and scuba experience for a first timer was incredible. Cannot thank the Dre enough for their insight and sharing the reef with us - thank you!

    Booking the private dive with Kiki was a highlight of our time in Australia! The 40-minute dive was unforgettable, and the top-quality BBQ food was a delightful bonus. After 6 weeks of exploring, this tour stands out as the best we've experienced. The staff and day's itinerary were truly exceptional. Thank you for an incredible day!

    Had a fantastic time! There was no better way to have your first dive done at the GBR.
    It’s a smaller group which is what we wanted. Tim was our dive instructor, he was very patient and informative. Highly recommended these guys if you want to have a well run ops! Thank you for a memorable time .

    Did the Padi open water dive course with 2 nights on the liveaboard.
    Staff were amazing and friendly, got fed well, the dive decks on the boats were run super smooth, with both divers and snorkellers, great locations on the reef including a night dive!
    Special mention to our dive instructor for the course Axel, absolute legend. Super friendly and accommodating, helped everyone out with skills they struggled with and made it fun!
    100% recommend the crew at divers den for any reef tours and/or courses.

    I did this same adventure in 1997 and it was great to go back with the family. The team are total pros and the setting in the national park not to be missed. Our guide Angelo tailored our ride to our requests and we felt 100% safe with him at the helm. Great vibe and fun times. Thank you!

    Recently went on the Three Day Liveaboard dive experience with Prodive Cairns, it was an amazing experience. From my first enquiry the team answered all my (many) questions with prompt professionalism. On board Dive Master Ashton provided excellent briefings, and was fun and approachable. I learnt so much about diving, the sea life and the reef in general. The food was exceptional (there was an exceptional variety of healthy food to fuel our dives) and all the instructors were professional and knew an exceptional amount about diving on the reef. As an anxious person I was never made to feel a burden and safety was paramount. Would go again and would recommend to everyone!
