Mike and his partner, the shop owners, are extremely helpful and accommodating. The staff is truly amazing and caring (special shoutout to Andy, Lindsay, Stuey, Lisa, and Vicky!). Great diving sites with lots of grey nurse sharks among other sea beauties! I highly recommend it!

Thank you for your review of our diving. We have always felt we have more shark encounters and action, and different fish-life than the Barrier Reef. It is great to hear it from our customers too!
