Jolly Dive staff are very professional and fun. Had great dives on all three day booked, even with rough seas. Dive shop is less than 5 minute walk down the beach from Jolly Beach Resort. Would definitely use them again. Hope to be back soon. Thanks.

As a novice diver, my priority is to find a dive shop that will accommodate my interests as well as my level of skill. Jolly Dive crew matched both. The staff were very professional and made both dives enjoyable and safe.

My husband and I did a 10 dive/5 day package with Jolly Dive. We emailed a month or so in advance of our stay to secure our spots and they did not require a deposit. The shop is only a 2 minute walk from Jolly Beach Resort where we stayed (reviewed separately) so it was very convenient. We showed up... More

I completed my Rescue Diver course here which I would recommend to anybody interested in advancing their diving technique. Jolly Dive offers full service diving with professional instructors. I felt totally safe diving with these guys and had a rare opportunity to observe several sharks at close range (please don't let this put you off - they are amazing animals... More

Had a two tank dive at Mad Max and School yard. Great visibility, Reef sharks, Lobsters, Nurse Shark, Ramora, Rays, Barracuda and a Turtle. Great dive crew. Very informative and friendly. Just an epic day out. Thanks to everyone at Jolly Dive for making it such a brilliant day.
