Service was top notch. Itinerary was great starting from Cairns as it built more excitement, and more beautiful coral as we moved north.

The variety of different diving experiences, from Cod Hole to "new dive sites" made it all exciting with many different and enjoyable experiences.

Glenn Abbott

Great staff, boat, diving and staff are amazing. This is my 3rd trip and already booked the 4th. Love the boat and team!

Victor Martin

You can't control what creatures you'll encounter and what the weather will do; but you can provide a better or worse service. In that respect, I give everyone at the Mike Ball Dive Expeditions a 10/10.

Robyn Holley

Fantastic crew and clear briefings. Loved the science. Ludicrous sing-a-longs!
