Me and my partner have done the open water course with Natalie and the advance with Lennert and it couldn’t have been better. Really good instructors and very nice people. In general all the crew is the best point of this company. Thank you for this amazing experience!!

Went out on the Reef Quest boat and absolutely loved it. Couldn't have asked for better food or patience from the dive instructors as these were my 1st and 2nd dives ever. Absolutely great day out.

I spent 3 days on Ocean Quest and had a great experience here! The boat is for both beginners and experienced people. I was the one with least experience, and there were people with 40 years experience - and everybody had a great time. The staff and guides were really great. All my guides diving were really great and helpful, and really made my diving better.

I did my scuba diving license here and it was a great experience. Good teachers, the place for the course was very well, in general I don't have any complaint. They allowed me to learn what I consider now as my favorite activity of life. The organisation for trips works perfectly too.

We dove with Divers Den on November 2017, both in Cairns and Port Douglas. It was amazing! The staff is just great. They're super friendly, fun and organised. It made the difference on our dives. (Special highlight for May, the photographer. She's the a very good one!)

Plus, their boats are amazing! It's big, spacious and comfortable, with showers on the bathroom (and that's a really good thing!).

As part of the operation organisation, there was an employee on the boat responsible for checking all your equipment, along with your buddy, and they also check how much of air you've got after each dive, as well as your maximum depth, to ensure everyone has a sufficient surface interval before the next dive.

It's very safe, and the dive itself... AMAZING!

We'd definitely dive again with these guys if we ever come back to Cairns, and we surely recommend them for the best dives at the Great Barrier Reef.

We just recently took a day trip to the reef with Divers Den from Port Douglas and had an amazing time! From the moment we got on board the crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and excited about the day ahead. We were all certified divers but a couple of us were quite nervous, so it was amazing to have the calm, supportive and professional crew and dive guide around to make us feel at ease. The reef in both locations that we visited was beautiful and we saw lots of different marine species including cuttle fish, turtles and reef sharks. Highly recommend!
