My husband and I just got back from a long weekend in Port Douglas and could not have had a better experience with ABC Scuba Diving. We are new divers just certified in February and this was our first time diving post certification. There was only 10 divers total in our group and when we were out on the reef we were literally the only boat anywhere in sight. The reef was looking great and we essentially had it all to ourselves. Being on a small boat allowed us to go to places that some of the bigger boats do not have access to visit. We were also really lucky on the day we visited as the conditions could not have been better. On our first stop we saw heaps of turtles, seeing our first one literally the second we jumped in the water.
We were paired into small groups that suited our skill level so there were just 3 of paired with the instructor, Wayne. Wayne went above and beyond just leading the dive. He was giving us feedback on things we can do to improve our diving skills and was very encouraging. He also showed us anemones and sea cucumbers that we could touch and did a great job pointing out marine life. On top of that he was so fun and friendly.
The day was so easy and convenient, there is plenty of parking at the marina and on board the crew had all of the gear set up and ready to go, there was not much that the divers had to do to prepare. After our dives we were given time to snorkel if we wanted.
The rest of the crew (Simon, Paul and John) was also fun and welcoming and all the crew members knew all of our names.
I did a lot of research when deciding which company to go with for this trip and I am so glad I went with this company as I would not have changed a thing about the day. It was a little more expensive than the bigger boats but it was 100 percent worth it to have the reefs to yourself and smaller groups. If I ever make back to Port Douglas I will without a doubt go diving with ABC again. We had such a great time I can't stop smiling when I tell people about it.
If you are going diving in Port Douglas ABC Scuba Diving is the best decision you will make!
