    The whole team were so great over the 3 day open water course. Jak was a great instructor and made me feel at ease from the first moment. Would highly recommend these guys for anything from a snorkelling day trip, to becoming a qualified dive instructor.

    Highly recommend!!! they were amazing with my 14 year old son. We were a bit nervous at first but they assured us they would take good care of him and that they did! Annie was my sons instructor and she was just lovely! This experience will be something he will never forget and is already busting to come back and do the advanced. Be seeing you soon I’m sure!

    Had a wholesome experience with QLD scuba diving company. The service were superb through out the 3 day course Padi open water course. My instructor, Manuel, was very patience, passionate to teach us despite me having difficulties performing some techniques. He ensures I do it till I get it right and also prioritise safety. Overall I would patronise QLD scuba diving company again in the future for their amazing service, crews, friendship and destination.

    Had a very great experience during the three days at the Open Water Diving Course. Instructors were super friendly and welcoming, my instructor who was in charge, Manuel, was extremely patient, detail-oriented and he gives clear instructions as well. Despite Manuel being the only instructor to 4 students, he was attentive to all of us, helping us out when we have difficulties and provide advice and help when we need it. I felt safe and guided throughout the entire course and I would definitely enrol in the advanced open water course with the company in the near future.

    Just finish my open water course, and I enjoyed the diving experience and the price is very affordable. My instructor, Manuel, is very professional, knowledgeable and patient when he was teaching me. His instructions were absolutely clear and when I'm uncertain about any drills or question, he will be very willing to teach me again. Thank you, Manuel, for the guidance and Thank you Queensland Scuba Diving Company for making me feel welcomed.

    Just completed the 3-day open water course with my 12-yr-old son. Found the course very safe, fun and practical. No simulated or pool based diving, all ocean diving from day one - the benefit of this is that you’re in the environment you’ll be diving in and you don’t develop any false sense of security that some might find starting in a pool. Great staff who were all friendly, approachable and knowledgeable - thanks to diving instructors Annie, Jack and Chris for a great experience, looking forward to future dives with this company.

    The crew at Qld Scuba Dive are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and fun! I did my Open Water PADI course with them and had an incredible time. The instructors are so patient and down to earth and capable of giving clear and concise direction. Anthony was informative and always there to answer questions or help out with any requests. Highly recommend! I will be completing the rescue course with them at the end of this month!
