Superb liveaboard

Very good experience! All the staff was very professional and dedicated. They were always willing to help. They were also very friendly and open to share their cool diving memoirs!The dive spots were also very nice, we spotted stingrays (blue spotted), clownfish, turtles, sharks, and heard a whale underwater! There were also other cool animals like a wide range of corals.The food was superb, very very healthy and tasty. There’s all types of food so everybody is satisfied. The chef, Marinus, cooked really well. My sister and I are lactose intolerant and he took this very seriously and made sure we always had something tasty to eat. You’ll find yourself always diving, sleeping or eating! The only thing I missed is having the option to get a longer wetsuit, I normally freeze underwater. I definitely recommend this liveaboard, I would do it again without any hesitation.Thank u guys for such an amazing experience.

First time noob obtaining open water PADI

Unquestionably, a must-do bucket list activity (with Pro Dive Cairns).Knowledgable team, thoughtful pick ups and drop offs during lessons, and friendly staff all the way. The lessons were hands-on and very informative with everyone's safety in mind. Such a cool experience, you really don't want to take any chances. Five star rated for a reason! Whoop Whoo, Yip Yip! Till next time!Thank you, Pro Dive Cairns!

Top Liveaboard Experience: Fabulous Crew

We’ve just been dropped off from a 3-day liveaboard trip and could not be happier. The crew was beautiful — incredibly aware and buttoned up, but also friendly and fun. Safety was clearly always paramount. Food was delicious, beautiful, and plentiful, with lots of salads to complement the mains. We slept so well. The dives were as gorgeous and lush as we’d hoped, and appropriate for our newly certified sim, as well as experienced divers. The vibe on the boat comes from the top, and it’s a great one. Thank you Leighton, Matthieu, Roberto, Flo, Joseph, and off course, the bacon master, Marius!
