Thank you Erin. You and Ally were brilliant and I'm stoked that you enjoyed the turtles at Cook Island. Even though turtles are a wild animal and no one can guarantee sightings on your dive. We do have a 99% success rate with the Loggerhead...More

We had a great day diving with Shane. We have dived with a number of different operators and Shane was by far the most organised and communicative, leaving us to enjoy the experience. We went to Manta Bommie off Straddie - great dive site!
