I won a Rainforest Scuba experience in a raffle and what a prize it turned out to be. It was very educational and a fantastic unique experience that I would highly recommend.

very different from the normal reef joy dive. the opportunity to see fresh water denizens in their natural habitats was very good. Didn't meet a platypus, but got the opportunity to see some later thanks to Luana's advice.

I don't post scathing reviews without much contemplation, however: I agree with other negative comments, this was not a high point of our time in North Queensland. Murky, shallow pond next to no instruction, far too much personal chit chat not pertaining to the event....More
