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.

The staff here are all friendly and taught me to dive at the best location (Cook Island) with a pool session to start with. My first night dive was in Tweed River. I always felt comfortable with the hire gear and safe on the boat trip across the Tweed bar. Hot drinks and snacks are provided during the surface time. I can highly recommend this company.

What can I say, I did my research and these guys were the highest reviewed, I now know why. My most important requirement was the dive site. Being on the Gold Coast I presumed there was not much in the way of good diving to do, how wrong I was.

Firstly the owners/staff were fantastic. While Jo deserves special praise for her training for the open water cert (more on that later) I’d like to thank Pete the owner for setting up such a great dive company, Dan for his endless work ethic sorting tanks, clearing the boat, constantly diving, picking up hot chips etc and the other Pete who calmly took us out over the tweed bar in what felt to me like the 100ft waves out of Nazare.

I signed up for my PADI open water course and chose TSS as they use cook island as their main dive site. No creeks or beach entry dives.

Day one was skills in the local pool. Jo provided info on all the equipment and we were taught how to set up all the gear. We ran through the first skills and safety elements there during a number of dives. I had some slight concerns but Jo was confident and reassuring enough that I was not worried. I’d done a couple of trial dives in Egypt and Tangalooma and found that I’d either sink to the bottom, float to the top or do both while burning through my air. Jo sorted that in about 3 minutes.

Day two and three were at cook island. Jo was our instructor and there were only two of us doing the open water cert so it almost felt like one to one training. As we turned up at the site, before getting in the water I’d already seen several turtles.

All the padi requirements were met easily with Jo’s instruction and we had plenty of time to have some great dives. Despite the swell, visibility was 10-20m.

It was a great treat to come up during the two dives each day to be greeted with hot face towels and an array of snacks and hot drinks.

The marine life we saw was incredible, loggerhead turtles (that like a stroke to clean their shells), leopard sharks, guitar sharks, endless nudiebranchs, rays, batfish, puffer fish, octopus, orangutan crabs and the highlight an enormous manta Ray that was very curious and circled and swam over the four of us for about 10 minutes.

I can honestly say, if you want to learn to dive or you already can but are looking for a dive company to take you out then Tweed Sea Sports is the place. I will be telling everyone to go there.

Thanks Pete, Jo and Dan.

One final note, tweed bar and the swell to cook island can be a little disconcerting. If you get seasick I’d suggest taking some tablets an hour before departure. I personally don’t get seasick but when it’s rough I find standing up and holding on to be a more relaxing ride.

Never dived Cook Island so it was a bit of a bucket list tick for us. TSS were great, good briefing, quick ride out and in the water without the usual mucking around. Our group included a DMC to guide us around...managed not to get lost lol. The dives were amazing, tonnes of life, sharks, turts, and Mrs GPC stoked with the amount of nudies. Surface interval starts with a hot facewasher!!! Never had that before and a brilliant touch that wouldn't cost much. Second dive a drift...you get motoring along at one part...pretty cool.
I'm trying to think of one thing that would stop us from giving it 100% and cant! I imagine Tweed Sea Sports will be out new go to for weekend dives. Thanks for having us aboard.

Awesome experience. Cant speak highly enough of Pete and Liat and their team. Great with my 11 yo doing his cert and as good with us who are cert divers needing some refresher points. Safe, experienced, organized, a tonne of fun and laughs, great equipment and flexible when little things pop up. Thanks so much. Best experience thanks to Tweed Sea Sports...

Amazing experience completing our Open Water Training Dives 1-4! Jo was our instructor and she was patient, entertaining, and most importantly, a great coach. I was a fish out of water on my first dive, but really worked out my buoyancy and comfort level by the fourth dive.

Protip: If you are prone to seasickness, take you dramamine more than one hour before the ride out. It takes a while to kick in.

We're experienced UK divers who did a double dive with Tweed Seasports, while staying a short distance away at Surfers Paradise.

We dived Cook Island which was a great site - in great condition and full of life including lots of turtles! We loved the snack between dives - which is a bit of a novelty for us UK divers! We also saw humpbacks on the ride back to shore.

Pete and his team we're all super friendly and made sure we had two great dives.
