I have always wanted to dive at the Great Barrier Reef and this was the perfect experience. Jorg was great from start to finish, even helped out tremendously when my ears were not enjoying the dive. If you haven’t done any diving before (and probably if you have), I would highly recommend doing it with Blue Dive in a small setting where the appropriate attention can be given.

My family and I were visiting Australia from Boston, Massachusetts, US. We went on a private dive with Seb, and it was amazing!! He led us to the most beautiful coral gardens and amazing sea life!! Seb also took incredible pictures of our family and all that we saw during the dive. This experience and the pictures Seb took will be treasured always. Thank you Blue Dive and Seb!!

We went on a private dive with Seb (from Quebec) and he was brilliant! He is a very kind and experienced diver who was very fun and friendly. It was my first time diving and I had a difficult time initially because of headaches/migraines from the choppy waves and breathing water in through my nose but Seb was very patient and I was so happy when I finally managed to get in and see the beautiful reefs and sea creatures. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent day with Seb from Quebec on a privately guided trip. Really nice guy who took care of us very well. I was doing an intro dive and my girlfriend doing a dive as a certified diver. He managed to find a level that was right for both of us though. Top marks!
Nice boat and a decent lunch too.

We had an absolutely perfect experience with Seb (from England). From the moment that we met him at the marina, he was kind and patient. I had never dived before but thanks to his instruction I was comfortable within minutes of getting into the water. He never rushed us and was happy to wait for me on the second dive when I had trouble equalizing. He pointed out interesting fish and made sure we had an amazing time. The private dive is definitely worth every single penny.
