Just wanted to give a big thanks to Katie. Katie spoke to me a number of times to help me book in the right trip to the reef for us and did a amazing job. Katie also gave me some advice on other things to do when in town. I would recommend these guys to anyone planning activities.

While in Port Douglas we stopped by Scuba Dave's. The help was extraordinary and service exemplary. Dave is a GoPro expert and can answer all your questions and give you great tips. The prices are reasonable and Katie was very helpful. You will have "No Worries" if you shop here.

This was a perfect day. You get to dive once in the GBR and with all the different options we wanted the day to go perfectly. We contacted Katie a couple of months prior to arriving asking about the different options. The problem with Port Douglas is that it is expensive to dive there and so when spending money you...

I arrived in PD wanting to dive but was overwhelmed with the choice. I did not want a boat with 75 people on it, so having read recommendations for Scuba Dave (and his wife Katie!)
