Our totally unique operation in Port Douglas makes us the diver’s and snorkeler’s choice. We take the smallest number of passengers to many pristine areas of the outer reef systems. Well away from all of the mass market tourist operators. All of our scuba diving is privately guided and we offer free professional underwater photos of your adventures.

We had a fantastic day and would recommend ABC to anyone - both scuba divers and snorkellers. We had previously been on a day snorkelling trip with one of the bigger boat companies and hated it. It was cattle class compared to ABC's first class. Don't hesitate to spend more on ABC's trip, it's well worth it.

My daughter and I had not been diving in almost 3 years, and were wary of the BIG boats that operate out of Port Douglas. ABC was more expensive, but in exchange you are guaranteed a more personal experience. We had only 8 divers on board, and one dive master per 4-5 divers. Our dive leader gave an excellent prep...

Wow what a fantastic experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and even the 6.00am start wasn't a hardship. The team on board were very professional and knew exactly the right places to see fantastic corals and an abundance of fish. We were treated to cakes, fruit and a lovely buffet lunch while on board. Their level of knowledge was great... More

The day out on the great barrier reef was really exciting and wont forget it. Everything worked smoothly. Being a small group is truly enjoyable and the team made this adventure a highlight of our trip. Thanks again

Nice memory, everything is well organized. The boat is very beautiful. Jay, the boss of this boutique dive shop, has moved here for quite a long time. He is very professional. They also have very good instructors.

I SCUBA dive all over the world and I think this was one of the best dive operators I have utilized. We researched each dive operator in the area long & hard, but kept coming back to ABC to compare. Though it appears pricey at first glance, in the end it was well worth the expense. Typically, I would not... More

We loved our introductory scuba outing with Jay and his team!! Jay (the owner) is a great guy and amazing photographer. Belinda was our scuba instructor and did a wonderful job coaching me and my husband as we learned how to use the equipment and get used to breathing under water. Belinda pointed out all kinds of cool fish as... More

We really enjoyed our trip to the Great Barrier Reef with ABC. They were more expensive than the other people doing trips but I thought - hey we're only doing this once and I'd rather have a more personal experience. We thought it was well worth it. There were five very friendly crew and 11 of us, some snorkelling and... More

Well looked after by the ABC team all the way from making the booking through to some fantastic diving. We were blessed with excellent conditions, and quality photos to remember the day is a real bonus and included in the price. The staff take great joy in showing you around this beautiful part of the underwater world!
