The scuba diving at Cocos Keeling islands is nothing short of spectacular. Fabulous visibility, pristine coral reefs, abundant marine life and all the trappings of a tropical paradise without the flashy resorts. Yes, it is isolated and it takes some effort to get there, but this is more than offset by the quality of the diving, the friendly locals and... More

My son completed his open water certification just before Christmas and we dived with Dieter at Cocos Island for his first dives after the course. The dives were fantastic in themselves, playing with dolphins in crystal clear water at 15m would be a highlight for an experienced diver, let alone a first dive. But I'd really like to highlight the... More

I had two wonderful dives with Dieter on Cocos Keeling Islands. I am a very unexperienced diver and was a bit anxious, because I haven't dived for a while and the sea was a bit rough that day, but Dieter calmed me down and gave me the confidence to go on, even after I got seasick. The underwater environment is... More

Hi danva666, thanks for taking the time to review your dives on TripAdvisor. Glad to hear that you had a great day out on the water with Cocos Dive.

Dieter and Karen having had the cocos waters as their back yard for many years were able to provide an awesome dive experience as well as great company. Their expertise, safety and knowledge was unfaultable and added further to a great holiday for myself and my partner. Dieter also went out of the way to help organise our accommodation. Thoroughly...

I'm writing this on behalf of my son who experienced a week's diving with Cocos Dives. It was part of an organised school trip from Perth. He had the best experience ever. The scenery was beautiful, Dieter and Karen from Cocos Dives were amazing and everything was run very professionally from start to finish. Karen truly is an amazing photographer... More

I could not be more thriller with the experience I had here: the water, the people, the company, everything, it was phenomenal! The dive sites were incredible and the visibility was unreal! Words cannot describe how filled with joy I am and how appreciative of these people to help make my visit the best it could possibly be!

An amazing 4 days diving! Dieter made our diving memorable, as did the fish, coral, manta ray, and, of course, the Sharks. Even the boat trip with accompanying Dolphins, flying fish and surface feeding manta rays, was a great way to start our diving day. This place is pristine! Oh, can't forget the lunchtime view over the turquoise blue waters... More

Dieter and Karen are friendly and knowledgeable. They run a very efficient dive service. The boat is small, but very capable - and never overloaded to squeeze another one in. We did 2 dives, great viz and lots of fish as well as a huge amount of hard and soft coral. Tasty lunch on Direction Island - including a snorkeling... More

Hi Jewey, greetings from the sand bar. Great to hear from you. Thank you very much for the very kind review.

We spent a 5 days diving with Karen and Dieter. They ensured everyone in the dive group had great diving. Extra care given to those requiring some weight adjustment. They were keen to share local knowledge. I will be back. Thanks again for a great week.
