We wanted our three children (12, 14 and 17 year olds) to learn how to dive in a fantastic location with a great instructor. After researching we chose Scuba IQ and we are very happy we did. Martin was fantastic, with his vast expertise, professionalism and wealth of knowledge. He communicated and connected well with the children and his friendly approach made the whole experience a thoroughly enjoyable one for them. I would happily recommend Scuba IQ to anyone wanting a personalised certification experience from the best. Thanks Martin.

Scuba IQ gave me the opportunity to to fulfil a lifelong dream - to learn to scuba dive. After passing the medical and getting the all clear to learn to dive SCUBA IQ took the reins and lead the way. From the online theory component through to the practical field work in the pool and ocean SCUBA IQ taught me everything about diving. And big thank you goes out to Chad my dive instructor. The knowledge and experience this gentleman has is phenomenal. His approach to teaching and sharing his knowledge is nothing less than exceptional. An all round nice guy with so much to give. I am now filled confidence to take on this new found hobby, gain experience and explore the other two thirds of our planet. I highly recommend this company for all your diving needs. If you are coming to Port Douglas give them a call, they cater to everyone including certified, experienced divers.

After lots of research I chose Scuba IQ to teach my 16 year old daughter to dive. Martin was a fabulous communicator who patiently answered the many questions I emailed to him. He was incredibly calm and accommodating when our dates had to change due to COVID restrictions. Thankfully it all worked out and my daughter completed the 3 day Open Water dive course with Scuba IQ. She was in a very small group of 3 students with 2 wonderful, experienced dive instructors - Seb and Chad. The course involved 2 days on the Great Barrier Reef with Calypso. Calypso are a great operation with a smaller number of passengers and the flexibility to choose which sites to visit depending on the weather conditions. My son, husband and I joined our daughter for the 2 days on the GBR. My husband and I alternated with joining the Scuba IQ group for the training dives and the final 2 'fun' dives and snorkelling with our younger son, who didn't go diving. On one day we visited Agincourt Reef and the 2nd day Opal Reef - where we were incredibly luck to see a minke whale and watch it underwater whilst hanging on to a line from the boat. The whole family had a wonderful, super fun experience with Scuba IQ - thank you Martin, Seb and Chad. We are looking forwarding to returning to Port Douglas in the next couple of years so our son can learn to dive. We will definitely be booking with Scuba IQ.

Exceptional company to do your dive certification and explore the GBR! Michael was an excellent instructor and really looked after our kids with patience and experience.

I completed a 3 day Open Water Dive Certification through Scuba IQ. Best instructors and experience. Martin was happy to pick up and drop off each day from the Port Douglas area and nothing was a hassle for him. The other instructors were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Two days spent out on the Great Barrier Reef, which incorporated the required skills for PADI as well as some exploring the reef. Exploring the reef, all included within the price of the certification?? What more can you ask for! On the second day, we completed the course by the end of the first dive, so the last two dives were solely for fun. Awesome experience and I recommend anyone looking to do a dive course in Port Douglas to seriously consider Martin and the team at Scuba IQ.
