You get what you pay for

Old boat and the captain is not very pleasant to his crew. Many fishing boats that I have been On have much nicer facilities. It gets the job done for the price, but much better options exist for the trip of a lifetime. I recommend spending a little more with another company.

Hi Lisa, We are very sorry you did not have an absolutely amazing experience with us especially when you scored a trip with us at a discounted rate and we have 98% satisfaction result from our guests on survey monkey. Perhaps a traditional sailing boat was not what you were looking for. Our skipper can be taken the wrong way if you are not a boat person? This is very normal that a skipper needs to show authority and leadership to keep everyone safe. We hope you enjoyed the fantastic diving and snorkeling, our friendly and professional crew, great quality equipment and good hearty food. We wish you all the best with your travels ><>

Stunning locations, a pity they didn't let me dive

The boat was a bit uncomfortable at the beginning but it's alright once you get used to it. The crew was great: friendly, helpful and very hard-working. Shout out to Cameron who's been working so much the whole time, I don't know how he managed to do everything so well! Pity they didn't let me dive even though I was fit to do so.

Hi Glada, Thank you for sailing with Coral Sea Dreaming and your great review. Australia does have some of the most strict dive laws in the world so it does prevent you from participating in diving with out a medical if you do not meet all requirements. If you plan to do any more diving in Aus, I would suggest seeking a clearance from a doctor. It is great to hear you have had an awesome time with us and love our crew. Safe travels.
