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.

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!

One of the best Charters out to the reef. Crew great and for once, good Coffee. Excellent buffet lunch...good job guys. See you next time. Con

The bus to the boat, rather then wading through water. The first snorkel was good, the bbq type lunch turned out to be a cold lunch with a limited supply of food where the emphasis was put on the quantity people could take. The bar facilities turned out to be some eskies filled with a variety of soft drink and alcoholic beverages. The second dive/snorkel site offered several opportunities to recover snorkel divers because of shortages in life lines out with a fair size current running.

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. .

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!

Lyja36 July 2021

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.

A4178PRvanessam July 2021

Awesome day with an incredible crew! The day went by too quickly. The reef was spectacular and the dive instructors (Francesco in primis) were so helpful.

LisaDxx July 2021

After not diving for over 2 years, Marita was v helpful, patient and supportive...she made it easy and enjoyable. Would fully recommend for those who are a little nervous! Thanks guys

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.

Dreamer507453 July 2021

Absolutely fantastic - loved it!! Crew were fun, knowledgeable and passionate about protecting the reef. We dived at the beautiful Beaver reef. Learnt and saw so much - perfect day!!

76Boudica July 2021

Absolutely brilliant! Such a friendly, informative and hilarious crew. The jokes are free lol. The food was way better than expected for a tour buffet. The fish and coral was gorgeous. In another life I'll become a dive instructor and join this mob.

LivieVirtue July 2021

We did the snorkelling experience and the preparation and education was very thorough. Ron was very knowledgeable and gave the people in our family confidence before hopping in the water. The crew were VERY friendly and welcoming as they gave us wetsuits to wear to make sure everyone had the best experience. We saw an amazing variety of tropical fish and beautiful coral. We would do this tour again in a heartbeat! This is a must if you’re near mission beach:)

mckechnieandy July 2021

Amazing day out on the outer reef with Nigel and crew! Great value for a beginner scuba diver and absolutely beautiful part of the reef. Top shelf instructor( thanks Frankie) delicious food, great company. I'll be back for sure!!

adaamjo July 2021

Spectacular day spent out on the reef. We visited 2 different reefs with so many fish - unicorn fish, angel fish & too many to name, we also saw stingrays & a turtle - so cool! The crew onboard were very knowledgeable & patient with those that needed help. Lunch & snacks were abundant too. Lovely day out from Mission Beach on our beautiful Great Barrier Reef!

theoldgirl2015 July 2021

I was lucky enough to go on the Great Barrier Reef day trip, with Mission Beach Dive, a family run company, Nancy was so friendly and organised our trip, a bus trip to the Reef Goddess, the crew on the Boat were very professional and safety conscious, but great fun to talk to. My dive instructor Matika(spelling?)was fantastic, from our dive briefing, which she was exceptional, she made sure we were all very safe, I got the help I needed, once we got under the water, she really shone, a great eye, she found marine life from huge white tipped reef sharks to box fish to several nudibranchs, the reef was pristine, I was really impressed, we had a lovely lunch and it was all a very good experience, well worth the trip down to Mission Beach

Evelin_T July 2021

Unfortunately the weather was not good. Raining and very rough sea. Families with small children (<10) should have been advised not to go, as it was to choppy at the reef for the smaller kids to feel comfortable in the water. Also a lot of the of them got seasick.

Odyssey02341924006 July 2021

A great day , one of the best locations we have been to around the world for snorkelling. Crew were friendly and helpful making the day a pleasure. Well recommended for anyone looking to go out on the reef.

Jay_Perl_Aus July 2021

Great friendly, personal service. My 14 year was PD daughter was very nervous to do her first dive and having the relaxed instructor got her in the water. On exiting she was all smiles and and immediately said “I wanna go again”

David_B July 2021

Great day. Unreal snorkelling Helpful and friendly staff Plenty of fish Highly Recommend doing the tour.,

B9635YCcharliel July 2021

As a teenager, I have never felt compelled to write a review; yet after my experience today I have never been more eager to put in a good word for a great business. Despite poor weather, the energetic crew brightened the mood and guided us to ‘Beaver Cay’ and ‘Friendship Bommie’ in the Beaver Reef system. The sights under the water were indescribable and unforgettable. The crew promoted and demonstrated the upmost respect for the fragile ecosystem, leaving not just us visitors happy, but the fish and coral happy too! An awesome lunch was provided with an array of different options which catered to all people. Overall, a day I will never forget thanks to the wonderful team at Mission Beach Dive… 5/5 stars, couldn’t get a happier customer. Well done and thank you.

Kim B July 2021

The reef out from Mission Beach is amazing. Some of the best we have ever seen. The crew at Mission Beach Dive were friendly, helpful and fun. We had a fantastic day. Thanks
