    Customer Review

    Wonderful Experience with Ocean Quest on GBR. Liveaboard provides a much more relaxed and enjoyable dive experience than day trip boats – well worth the extra cost. We got to experience the GBR with great guides and then share our experiences with the other guests over a meal or a beer in the bar. The diversity at GBR is just awesome and getting to experience sea turtles, cuttlefish, sharks, unicorn fish and all the other colorful and unique species we encountered.” Recommended for: Warm showers when you wanted/needed, a bed to rest on .. and the crew.

    Ran like a well oiled machine. Awesome. Everything. The way it was organised and ran so smoothly was amazing. The whole crew just did brilliantly. Despite the fast turns arounds and the amount of people doing different courses, different dives, different levels, they catered for everyone as an individual. I felt super safe despite being quite an unconfident diver when I started. I certainly wasn’t by the end. Night dive and dawn dive were just spectacular. We will both be back. Thanks for everything.” Recommended for: Organisation, the crew, the diving.
