Great crew, beautiful dive site, small groups. If dolphins or seals are spotted they will take the boat right up alongside them. The guide Alex was fun and friendly. They take you to many of the sites the cruise boats visit. Drawbacks; the dives are rather short to accommodate people driving back over the mountain same day, and they don't do tours every day.

Well looked after by Mike and Alex. At the time of my dives in early February, there was no discernible freshwater layer as I expected, since there had been no rain for the past two weeks. I've seen more interesting dive sites, but Milford Sound may be the most beautiful topside scenery I've ever dived in

It was a great experience and I would recommend it if you don't mind paying about $250 for two dives. The price is the only draw back.

All the gear was pretty good and only 3 people diving on our day so heaps of room on the boat, but I could see it getting crowded on a busy day and without the wheel house to get into to stay warm it might be a little chilli spending the whole trip outside.

The water is clear enough to see everything you need and where else will you see some deep water creatures?!?!

Quite a lack of information about the dive plan and what we were likely to see. All safe though, gear in good nick.

Water wasn't very clear, we saw some nice things but the dive we did in the Red Sea was nicer.
