November 2019 Visit was Da Phat! Dave and his crew were wicked. We had an absolutely fantastic time away from the world and out on the Great Detatched Reef! We left via Horn Island and returned via Horn Island, managing to get a dive in on the Quetta which was an absolute dream dive of my Husbands. Dave provided years of experience and this was very clear to see when we dived the Quetta and his knowledge of the Detached was 👌🏻👌🏻 Raine Island was also a huge dream of mine to dive and we did 2 dives there 😍🔥 Cathedrals was also STUNNING. Hands down one of the best trips we have done. We loved the simplicity and good times on the boat. Nothing fancy. Spent a lot of time chilling on the deck catching a tan, slathered in sunscreen. Reading books. Sleeping between dives. 4 dives a day. What a way to live. We got to see the Milkyway when all the lights were turned down and it was just so serene. Can't wait to come back in the coming years, once our small human can be away from us for 10 days as COVID changed plans, we will be back 😅

Dove Cairns to Thursday Is from Nov 1-14, 2020 on the MV Kalinda liveaboard ably skippered by Dave Stewart. Great value for money dive tour. Did 40 dives at many of the great bucket list dive sites on the FNQ part of the GBR in a group of 10 divers. Basic, safely operated liveaboard. Thoroughly recommended. Second trip and hope to do again in 2021.

Boarded the M.V.Kalinda in Cairns for a dive trip north to Thursday Island. Captain well versed on the reef and took us diving on some fantastic spots, some hardly visited. All crew was professional, safe and happy to help while still retaining that "We're all mates here" attitude. What a great boat and crew. Cabins were plenty big enough for my partnet and i and all facilities on the boat were fine. Amazing chef/ cook Michael never left us or crew hungry and worked the galley like a magician creating good wholesome food, sometimes while underway. This is a fantastic live aboard and we will travel with these guys again without a problem. Thanks heaps for all your skills and help and I'm sure i speak on behalf of the whole Scuba World crew in saying thanks to all crew for a trip that i know wouldn't have been as good on anu other vessel. We will be back for sure.
