Great family adventure

Excellent facilities, vessel, snorkelling equipment and crew. The right mix of safety and casual approach by the experienced and approachable team providing a low pressure, low impact experience in the Bay. Some nature, some history, other families and a little adventure. My only recommendation for families is to take your own drinking water and snacks and a jacket and warm hat to wear between dives as the Bay can get pretty cold.

Fantastic - but no time to actually experience

The support crew at Scubabo Dive is fantastic and it is very safe. if I had to give star rating for the crew I'd give 7 stars out of 5. Unfortunately the scheduling is such when you get to the highlight "Swimming with the seals" it was jump in the water swim to the seal and come back in 2 minutes which is very dissatisfying. Also the stay at "Cobb & Co Lodge" which is the back of the Scubabo Diving school building is similar. The staff service, I will give 7 out of 5. they bend over back to make your stay comfortable, And it seems like the owner is exploiting their good nature to the max. Owners - please provide correct info when advertising.
