“The best way to see the reef” –Trip Advisor.

Price on request, please email us for an immediate quote. The price, of course, comes in a little higher than diving directly with the crews of one of the boats as we commit to take only your private group diving, a very luxurious way to dive some super reefs.

 

Diving and snorkelling with Poseidon, Silversonic and Calypso

If price is an issue or Blue Dive don’t have availability on your dates then we can book you to dive directly with Poseidon, Silversonic or Calypso and their crew. On these trips you will be diving with a guide or instructor provided by the boat operator, not Blue Dive. There will be other divers in your group.  If you want to dive with a Blue Dive instructor then you must book the privately guide dive option above.

 

Group trips are a great option for those on a budget but don’t include free photos, complimentary refresher sessions or the services of your own private Blue Dive instructor for the day.

 

If you’re still not sure if group diving or privately guided diving is right for you then contact us to discuss your options and check out the latest Trip Advisor reviews of our privately guided diving service.
