The highlight of our trip. It was nice to have the private guide provided by Blue Dive on this trip. We were both inexperienced divers and Seb made everything work smoothly. We would highly recommend this company and Seb in particular.

Have been diving many places over 30 years but first time to GBR. Bottom line: GREAT experience. We were a little hesitant to be on a large boat with beginner divers and snorkelers, but the staff did a good job of handling the groups separately....More

Thanks plenty for your great review. Diving in your own private group is a super way to dive. Great for our small team of instructors too. I’ll be sure that Ted sees this. Thanks again and best wishes Mark.

Been dreaming of diving the GBF for so many years and it was nothing short of amazing and it was well worth doing the private group dive. Big thanks to my guide, Tobias, for such a wonderful experience and for capturing about a hundred photos....More
