A+ for everything, service, smiles, knowledge, and the dive was awesome. Lunch could have been a little bit better though.

Some dive operators requires a dive medical if over 65 year old and wanting to dive. You can get it done at certain doctors. In Cairns, the 24 Hour Medical and Mcleod Medical offer them.
