AMAZING. The staff were all sooo lovely and they couldn't have been more helpful with anything I needed. I got my Open Water and was lucky to have one on one for the entire thing. They had my qualification certificate send to me before I had even left on the final day! Totally worth it and I would recommend this company to anyone 🙂

Didnt have a great experience with customer service my sister booked to go snorkelling along with 3 family members and they got COVID the day before rang to cancel no one responded so on the day of the trip they called then emailed and they said sorry no refund or reschedule I would not recommend this company at all. Not very accommodating with whats happening right now. She tried ringing a lot also but they never responded. The email replies back was very rude also.

Great experience! Scuba Andy, Scuba Obie and Scuba Reef were really great and made us super comfortable. Loved that it was all in the ocean and not in a pool

First trip to goldcoast and started our holiday with scuba. Fully satisfied with their service and moreover with their pleasant attitude. All of them were very helpful and if I had a choice, I could have rated them more than 5 stars. We had two of the best instructors, who took their time to make us enjoy to the fullest. However,I am extremely hydrophobic but this turned out to be the best experience so far.

Awesome day snorkelling at wave break island! The guys who took us out, were super friendly and helpful! So many beautiful, colourful fish that we were able to hand feed as we snorkelled.. I highly recommend Queensland Scuba Diving Company for a great day out!(people of all ages, especially kids!)

Three days of close instruction... with most of the time in the water... Steve took us (each trainer took four persons) through all the paces, customised to each person's ability, the equipment was well fitted and total (didn't need to bring a thing... though I was able to bring my own mask and snorkel).. it was educational and fun...Ask for Steve... he's very experienced!

My wife and I had a great snorkelling experience with the team at Queensland Scuba Diving Company, thank you. We saw lots of fish and shells and the snorkelling far exceeded our expectation. The equipment was well maintained and a good number of crew to accompany us. We are thinking about having a go at the no-experience dive and even to get PADI certification because the crew were very experienced, safety-conscious and patient.

An excellent teacher can make all the difference in a new learning experience, and that's why I'll be forever grateful that I signed up with QLD Scuba Diving and lucked out with Scuba Steve as my open water diving instructor for 3 days. What a legend! With 30 years of diving experience, he made us all feel comfortable, safe and taken care of underwater, and kept me calm each time I felt out of my element. You never get the feeling that any question is too silly or that he's impatient in any way. His instructions were clear and easy to follow, plus he's funny and personable and fun to spend the day with. He noticed I was cold on the first day and offered me a second wettie to wear underneath on the subsequent days too. I'm fairly nervous around water so I'm surprised at how comfortable I felt under his instruction. I'd 10/10 sign up for another course and ask for Steve in the future, and can't recommend this mob enough - everyone was friendly and great to deal with. Thanks so much, QLD Scuba Diving 🙂

Signed up the course without reading that it doesn't actually start on a Friday, they were super accommodating. Started at 6:30, we were done by 12pm. Andy was a great instructor, took his time with me and my ears that were causing trouble, had a few great solutions and was very patient when I needed it. Was a great and easy course, and the interns were super nice. I hope to come back as an Intern and keep up on the dive skills.

Amazing experience!! My boyfriend and I completed the PADI open water course, and every day we felt like we learnt so many valuable skills, and it was so much fun every step of the way. I found myself struggling with the cold on the second day, and the next day my instructor Matty took the time to find me extra gear to ensure I was warm and comfortable on our next dive. This course has really opened up a world of possibilities for me, thank you so much to Matty for the mentoring he gave us, and a special shout out to Andy, Obi and Reef for keeping our spirits extra high!!

I had an incredible time getting my open water scuba license with my girlfriend. The whole team was absolutely lovely and patient with everyone. Our instructor was Matty and he was a legend. He was really thorough throughout all of the lessons and made everything super easy and comfortable for all of us. Cheers Matty! I would definitely recommend coming here for lessons!

What an awesome morning of snorkelling with Qld Scuba Diving Co. at Wave Break Island. A big shout out to Halley, who was delightful from the moment she picked us up at the hotel until she dropped us off. Halley advised us not to miss seeing 'the little fish' darting in and out of the rocks. So we took our time and she was right! We spotted so many beautiful littlies among the schools of other fish. Thanks Halley for brightening up our day.

Fantastic operation! My instructor (Manny) was top-notch, cannot recommend him highly enough. Did the Open Water Three Day course and had an absolute blast. Will absolutely recommend to anyone.Note: Google Maps directions aren't the best, as it only takes you to the parking lot. You have to go down to the end of the pier and take a left at Gold Coast Helicopters, then walk another 30 meters or so.

Had a very great experience during the three days at the Open Water Diving Course. Instructors were super friendly and welcoming, my instructor, Manuel, was extremely patient, detail-oriented and he gives clear instructions as well. Despite Manuel being the only instructor to 4 students, he was attentive to all of us, helping us out when we have difficulties and provide advice and help when we needed it. Overall, a really great and worth-the-money experience, much thanks to Manuel and company.

Just finish my open water course, and I enjoyed the diving experience and the price is very affordable. My instructor, Manuel, is very professional, knowledgeable and patient when he was teaching me. His instructions were absolutely clear and when I'm uncertain about any drills or question, he will be very willing to teach me again. Thank you, Manuel, for the guidance and Thank you Queensland Scuba Diving Company for making me feel welcomed.
