Island Diver Testimonials

I went on Island Diver for a friend's birthday and had an incredible day. The weather was perfect and the reef sites were beautiful. I did a certified dive and went off exploring with my friend, found Nemo, a turtle and a whole heap of colourful fish and coral. The sand island was great as we got to do some more snorkelling and chill on the beach too, great tunes, good food and an awesome vibe!! Can't wait to get out there with them again.

Had such an awesome day out on Island Diver! Was the best visibility that I have ever had whilst out on the reef and we saw so much. Crew was awesome and very attentive. LOVE the soundsystem and the reggae vibes! Biggest highlight was snorkelling around and hanging out on the beautiful island.

I travelled on Island Diver at the start of November, with a few of my compadres who had no diving experience what so ever, The crew where extremely flamboyant and there was an amazing vibe on the boat. The instructor for the introductory dive was very safety conscious and made us all feel very comfortable under the water. I would highly recommend it as its not to crowded and busy in the water like many other boats.
