Fabulous fun filled day on the reef at Mission beach
Oct 2021 • Couples
Fabulous snorkeling expedition out on the reef. We really enjoyed this more personal tour of smaller numbers we met some friendly folk along the way. The tour went to some amazing areas of coral. Excellent service, friendly staff members who went out of their way to create a fun filled day. Lunch was excellent with a great choice if salads. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great day out.

THIS is the experience you want at the reef! Best crew!
Oct 2021
We had the BEST day out on the reef yesterday with a group of friends and the Mission Beach Dive crew!! Nigel, Marita and First Mate (sorry I forgot your name, but you had amazing shark facts!) really made the trip one to remember. Aside from the stunning scenery and fascinating dive/snorkel sites, we generally just had a great time on the boat ride too. The crew were friendly, hilarious, knowledgeable, and truly cared about giving each guest a memorable experience. 10/10 would recommend! Thanks again guys!

Wonderful day out on the Great Barrier Reef
Sep 2021
We had a great day out on the reef today, weather and conditions were perfect. Nancy rescheduled the trip for today as weather was not good for tomorrow, communication was first rate. All the crew were friendly and helpful all day.

My teenage children had their first introductory dive today and it was a great experience because of Francesco, their instructor. Frankie was an excellent teacher and made both my children feel at ease. They both enjoyed the dive at the first location and snorkeling at the second.

I snorkeled both locations and the Beaver Reef location would have to be the best I have ever snorkeled. Very high quality, beautiful corals with a wide variety and amazing amount of fish species present. Spotted a reef shark, gar fish, and many giant clams at the first site also. I would highly recommend Mission Beach Dive. Many thanks for a memorable day out.

Thank you so much! I was so pleased the next day was so windy, we certainly made the right decision :) I guess the difference with smaller companies is the ability to maneuver to ensure everyone has the best experience possible so thank you for being so flexible! Hope you visit Mission Beach again sometime and thanks again :) Nance

A very enjoyable day on the outer reef.
Sep 2021
Wonderful day out on the Outer Reef. Skipper Nigel is quite a character and set a fun mood for all. The rest of the crew, Marika, Franky and Justin were all great. We were impressed with the highly professional capabilities of all the crew. We visited two sites at Beaver reef. Visibility was good and there was plenty to see under the water. Lunch included some great salads and prawns.

A perfect day on the reef! Beaver Cay and Friendship Bommie were the best sites we have ever seen. The coral was absolutely beautiful and the fish plentiful and diverse . The crew Nigel(skipper), Frankie(dive instructor) and Marika(hostess) were so helpful and accommodating and Nance in the office. This group are like one big happy family. You don’t need to be able to dive or snorkel to enjoy this great day out!

Fabulous day out to Beaver Reef
Jul 2021 • Couples
The crew were all amazing; informative, helpful, friendly and made the trip fun.
Lots of different fish to see and the icing on the cake was whales which came past close to the boat...magic!
Very nice lunch and great coffee.

A fabulous day out despite the ‘rough’ conditions. Crew were all fantastic and good fun. Disappointed not to get to both reefs but still abundant sea life to view.
