We had a great time with Reef Experience!! The full day tour is very well organized, well equipped and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. It does take around an hour of sailing to get to the first dive site - so please be prepared for motion sickness if you have any. Breakfast, lunch and light snacks are... More

We just got done with the reef experience and very much enjoyed it! Neither of us our strong swimmers so I was very nervous about the dive. Hitomi was an amazing guide and made us feel 100% comfortable! So much so that I went a on a second dive. We chose the Top Deck experience and highly recommend others do... More

We did two scuba dives as introductory divers and very much enjoyed the day. The second dive was by far the highlight. We were able to be under for 40 mins plus giving us tons of time to explore! The second location had some very pretty coral, fish, and we even saw a huge sea turtle! The first dive we... More

The boat felt old and pretty dirty. The seats left some black sticky stains on our clothes that completely ruined my shirt and my girlfriends dress since the stains wouldn't even go away after washing them several times. Some of the staff were really nice but some were pretty rude. Food was a bit poor. The gear seemed old and... More

I will definitely recommend this guys to all of my friends! That was the unforgettable adventure organized in the most efficient and nicest way. For 195$ we were picked up from the hotel, brought to the reef, given an introduction diving (that took about 35 minutes) and we had breakfast, lunch and lots of snacks during the trip (including some...

Hubby & I went on the VIP Top Deck experience with above company. We were met by Chris our allocated Top Deck attendant, who looked after us all day. We were allocated a table were we had all our meals/drinks. Which was better than having to queue for lunch etc. He also made sure we had our snorkelling equipment &... More

I gave Excellent as this is a whole package for a wonderful day. The Food, staff and facilities are excellent. I had no interest in the Scuba Diving as i am scared of Sharks and the staff made me feel so relaxed and safe about them. I was lucky and was able to have my dive instructor to myself and... More

We only had one day to explore the reef and we chose Reef Experience. So glad we did! We opted to pay a little more for the Top Deck service and it was so worth it! From the moment we boarded we were treated very well. Our personal crew member, Zac, greeted us and brought us past all of the... More

I'm not a prolific swimmer & had never been scuba diving earlier, so I was a little apprehensive when my wife signed us up for Reef Experience. That apprehension all but evaporated within the first 2 minutes on board. The crew was very polite, friendly and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more. Hugo gave us the initial briefing which...
