Had an amazing experience on the Reef with the Divers Den crew!
We had a perfect day and snorkelled at two fantastic reef locations. We saw a huge variety of marine life and colourful coral, including clown fish, turtles, sharks, a cuttlefish.
So peaceful snorkeling in the reef, get lost in your thoughts and in the moment.
Listen to the Humphead Wrasse eat the coral, a few of the Parrotfish and the Humphead Wrasse came up close to check me out. Face to face with them barely a few centimeters apart. You could pay for that sort of experience.

The Great Barrier Reef is out of this world! Don’t miss it. I’ve done a few dives before, but this was the best yet. Saw so many different fish and ocean creatures (including a HUGE grouper and reef sharks!). Felt really comfortable with all the equipment and crew… everything was great quality and my dive guide definitely knew his stuff. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to experience the Great Barrier Reef!

Thanks Deep Sea Divers! Had a blast out there. Even the boat trip was great, jetting out to the outer reef and chatting with the divers in such an amazing place! The reef was amazing too of course and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to see the life of this iconic place. Even though I just did the snorkel only option, as I was a bit nervous, I had the best time and will TOTALLY go back and try the dive with these guys. Can’t wait.

Had a great day on the reef. I’m certified so I’ve dived plenty of places, and everything was so spot on with Deep Sea Divers. Gear, team, info, location, sights all 10/10. Good food and snacks to keep you going, dive team with know-how and (obviously) the stunning great barrier reef all made it amazing. Even though the weather was a bit gloomy, everything went off without a hitch. Probably the smoothest day trip diving I’ve ever done.
