Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

This was by far the highlight of our trip to Australia. We came to Port Douglas to dive and snorkel and this package gave us that ability. We left in the morning and returned about 5pm each day. We were able to customize our package to the areas we wanted to go, this worked great for us. A very professional company. Their gear from masks to snorkels was in great condition and great quality. My 12 year old son was the first in the water and last one out each site, he enjoyed it so much. I also had questions before the trip and they answered my E-mails promptly.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2011

These three days were absolutely amazing. We went to three different spots. We felt that we were snorkeling in an aquarium, it was so beautiful. They have a smooth, organized process for all the divers and snorkelers. Quicksilver is a great organization.
