Me and my family spent a wonderful day with Mark and Dave. Apart from the altitude dive in Lake Eacham, which was a great and weird experience (blue and red yabbies!) we spotted freshwater turtles during a forest walk, a lot of kangaroos (and green ants) and we visited the curtain fig tree, Kuranda and waterfalls. Mark and Dave shared with us their extensive knowledge on geography and social and ethnical subjects, for instance on the Australian language groups and group clans. We enjoyed a day full of science, nature, diving and walking!

Excellent experience with Blue Dive for my wife and I. Very personal service from our dive master Michael who catered the dive to our needs and interests. Very knowledgeable about buoyancy, photography and diving in general. Ship used is the Poseiden. Good quality equipment. More expensive but worth the money.

Just finished a 2 day livaboard on the Boss with Blue Dive. We are a family of four with two teenagers. We had a pool day first with Georgia because my wife and I were very out of date and the children were still learning (they did the classroom stuff in the UK and qualified on this trip). Georgia was vey patient with us and really great fun. The trip on the Boss was just outstanding. It's more expensive than the day boats but if you want to dive in luxury then this is the way you do it. We were only 14 on board and nothing is too much trouble for these guys. Sophie cooked amazing food, Lochie solved every problem and drove the tender and Dave was an outstanding teacher for the children and a great guide for the adults. Really fun, really friendly and safe and professional. He really worked so hard to make sure we all got the most out of our diving and is clearly passionate about it. Seven dives in two days including a great night dive which was so much fun. Very comfortable cabin too. We saw turtle, whales (from the boat) reef shark, barracuda, clown fish, puffer fish, rays and much more. I was told by a friend that if you're diving from Port Douglas you should go with Blue Dive. They weren't wrong. Amazing trip guys - thank you; see you soon we hope.

This was my first time diving, I took a two day course with 2 other girls to learn. Adriana our instructor was fantastic and our first 3 dives on the reef were amazing! Will definitely be back to the GBR to dive again.

This was my daughter's first dive after completing her accreditation last year and we were lucky enough to have Dave from Blue Dive as our dive master just for the two of us. He was a fantastic host - informative, attentive and helpful. He made the whole experience fun, particularly for my daughter who was a little nervous. We went out on Posiedon - a fast 90 minute trip to the reef and then did three dives around various sites where we saw an amazing variety of fish and other marine life, including my daughter's first shark! Having our own guide made the process more fun - we didnt feel we were holding anyone up or our relative lack of ability was constraining anyone else. The quality of the equipment was high and the boat itself had good food and lots of it. A nice touch was that Dave took lots of photos during the day and emailed us a dropbox link of these for free -no need to buy the expensive photos from the onboard photographer with Posiedon. While an expensive day out, in value for money terms it is difficult to beat.
