The Great Barrier Reef
|Be careful in choosing a dive operation, particularly if you are an
inexperienced diver. PADI and other certifying
organizations have ratings for dive operations. Ask at your local dive shop, chances are
that a diver in your hometown has been to the Great Barrier Reef and can recommend an
Deep Sea Divers Den offered a 3-day live aboard, with 11 dives. They were good about checking the manifest and logging divers in and out of the water and their pre-dive briefings were good. The crew was multilingual. As a new diver (first time in the ocean as I learned in a quarry), I was very comfortable with their operation.
