Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a super captain and team that took us to an amazing collection of reefs and were as enthused as their clients. Very nice lunch and safe practices for managing the highlight of my year with my teens.

We had an absolutely incredible time with the crew of mission beach dive. The weather was bad in the first half but they handled it very professional and encouraged us to go snorkelling anyway. It was so worth it! They took good care of the group and were so friendly and fun. The second snorkel was an absolute Highlight. We saw turtles and a shark and such a beautiful and healthy reef. The crew had a big knowledge wich they loved to share with us. We can totally reccomend this tour to explore the great barrier reef!

Thank you so much! Weather we can't control (if only!) so we are so pleased you enjoyed your day with trying conditions to begin with. The reef truly shines and with a little encouragement and good attitude you will always have fun on the GBR :) Thanks again and hope to see you again, Nance

Our family had an awesome day out snorkelling with Mission beach dive.🤿 Beaver Cay is a great part of the reef, visibility was great, a good diversity of coloured corals, loads of small ultra colourful fish and some beautiful big fish too..
The team were good fun, informative and ultra helpful.
My hubby isn’t a confident swimmer however the captain put out a rope for him to hold & drift over a good part of the reef while having a vest and noodle for floatation. And helped pull him in if he was struggling.
The lunch was delicious,! So fresh, I couldn’t resist it even though I was feeling a bit seasick 🤢
Being a smaller boat you don’t have to wait agers for the divers to suit up and we had over 3 hrs snorkelling 🐠 🪸
You won’t regret going out with this team 👍🏼 🤩

We had THE BEST time on our Great Barrier Reef Snorkel and Introductory Dive.
The boat crew were so lovely and they put all our worries about the snorkeling and diving at ease. The lunch was delicious and the trip was just an absolute joy.
Our 10 year old snorkeled with me and ended up very independent and our 13 year old loved that she got to both snorkel and scuba dive. It was her first time diving and Toby who was the instructor was so great with her and all the first time divers.
Couldn’t recommend it more!

Great day out diving (as a certified diver) with Mission Beach Dive. The MV Reef Goddess is very comfortable for the 1.5 hr trip out to Beaver Reef. Tea/Coffee and biscuits are available on the way out. There is fresh water on the boat. Daryl was our dive guide and was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great 1st dive then the boat moved to a 2nd site while lunch was served - prawns, ham, cheese, lots of salads and rolls, it was a good and plentiful selection for lunch in the sun. After lunch, we had a 2nd dive at the new site. Lots of pretty coral and fish to see. You can snorkel around your dive or just snorkel at both sites if you're not diving. On the way home, there are cold drinks/beers etc to enjoy! The trip was well worth it, all dive gear is included in the price, great service and a lovely lunch. It was a really good day out and I'll go again. Recommend!

Great day out to Beaver Reef. Nice crew and the boat was clean and comfortable. Food could be improved with better quality food.

Great day out, great snorkeling even better lunch and a very professional crew. Was great to go out with more mature and experienced crew instead of young people. Way better and more personal than any Quick silver trip I have done.
