Robin Powell, 06 Jun 22
I had such a great time on this boat diving and relaxing. Originally only booked on for 1 night but extended and it's worth paying for the extra night to do the night dive and the fluro dive, they're both brilliant in different ways - loads of sharks, or crazy vibrant colours.
Joe Daoust, 26 May 22
SO SO GOOD!!! Best time I've had in Australia! Norman and Saxon are really good reefs with so much life on them. Do the night dive and the fluorescent dive!
Dave Young, 28 Apr 21
Spent 3 fantastic days on Oceanquest, exploring Norman & Saxon Reef. Plenty of Sharks, turtles and tropical fish. Dive sites were excellent, crew were very helpful. 100% recommend.
