I did the 11 drive, 3 day/2 night liveaboard through Pro Dive. What an amazing experience. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to dive the Great Barrier Reef. The crew was awesome and a well oiled machine from start to finish. They know what they're doing. Marc was great with the briefings and keeping the schedule. The boat and food were perfect. One thing to point out is the dives aren't guided. You are given a briefing and then dive on your in small groups. Awesome experience!

My husband and I had a great experience on the 3 day/2 night live aboard. There were 32 people on board, about half doing courses and half certified divers. We were in the certified group and they did a nice job breaking everyone out so it didn’t feel crowded. Saw lots of rays, a few sea turtles and sharks, and a wide variety of fish. Well organized, safe and fun. The crew (Nikky, Mike, Flo, Sam, Chloe, Emily) were all great. Food was delicious. Got 11 dives in that span so it was busy, but there was still some time for relaxing & enjoying the sun. Would highly recommend!

You cannot afford to do any mistake if you provide such trips - and Pro Dive didn‘t. Captain Josh, entertaining and informative Marc, kitchen master Chloe, charming and competent Sophia, surrounded by patient instructors Jesper and Hampus didn‘t fail on that.
The divers on our trip were interesting people from all over the world. The place is magical, the boat very well concieved.
I can only recommend it!

I went on the 3 day 2 nights liveaboard with ProDive and it was definitely an unforgettable experience. It was my first liveaboard experience and it set a very high standard. We saw sharks, stingrays and turtles, giant fish to large schools of small fishes. The crew were fantastic, they knew where to see everything and the best spots to dive, the briefings were clear and fun and you don't have to worry too much about navigation, the food is absolutely delicious and most importantly it was very safe. There was a giant turtle they named Brian and it was exactly where the crew said it will be.There is no wifi onboard but if you did buy a data card there is service out on the reef. Highly recommended liveaboard but if you are a more experienced diver maybe go for a longer liveaboard.

My husband and I booked the 2 night-3 day live-aboard trip for our family. Our boys are 12 and 14 years old. They were the only kids on the boat, but were treated well by everyone. It was not our fist time diving, but we got certified on the boat. Because we had our kids, we hired a private guide/instructor for just our family. It was worth it. Daminano was wonderful. Because he was dedicated to us, he got to know us well and was especially good with our kids (paying special attention to their skills and weaknesses and encouraging them). The whole crew was great though. While on board, my youngest son decided he wanted to go for the next level of certification. He did that on the boat and had a great experience.

We saw sharks, turtles, amazing fish, rays, giant clams and beautiful coral. It was just breathtaking.

Here's what you need to know: ALL bathrooms are shared; you are not allowed to bring your luggage on the boat (you only get to bring a duffel bag - the rest gets left at the dive shop); you only have time to dive, eat and sleep; the food is excellent; the guests are wonderful; bring clothes that are easy to get in and out of (you can't sit in the dining room if you are wet - so you need to rinse off and change between each dive); leave all of your make up in the dive shop - you won't need it; and hang on to the wifi password they give you because you will have to re-enter it everyday.

This was the highlight of our trip!
