Dreamtime Video Clip


The operation caters to both first time divers up to experienced divers.  This section of the Great Barrier Reef is as good as all the other dive locations I’ve personally experienced.  All dives are guided however the dive crew are very attentive to each divers experience level and expectations. Expect to see anemones, sea whips, turtles, sweet lip, sting rays, bat fish and the odd reef shark.  You will have the opportunity to complete three certified dives and two introductory dives.
