Did two days of wreck diving with an incredible staff. The wrecks of Conception Bay South are incredible and must-see for any diving enthusiast. And Snorkeling with Whales is unique, fun, and breathtaking.

I arrived in St John's from out of town on a recommendation that there was great diving. My dive guide was excellent. Vibrant personality, very experienced and knowledgeable about the area. The dive shop administration however was too rigid for me. No local 'flavour' and not willing to create an experience for someone out of town who didn't fit the... More

I had a manicure and pedicure done at the spa there. I had a big social weekend coming up and thought I would treat myself. I enjoyed the warm soaks and lotions and foot and hand massages, but I was very disappointed with the job done with my nail cuticles, I feel that they were not trimmed at all. I... More

I did the snokeling with whales trip and was really looking forward to it. We saw a whale while in the zodiac and all entered the water ahead of the whale's path but it never swam past. We were in the water at the most 10 mins (I can't remember exactly) waiting for the whale. We then got back into... More

We wanted to do something a bit more active on our trip to St. Johns and this hit the spot. A short drive outside of the city this is a nice way to get on the water and see Bell Island. The trip started with a zodiac ride out to the island which was fun and we saw a few... More

Thanks for the review CK and great to hear that you had a memorable experience. Too bad we weren't able to get into any of the caves that day. Hope to see you back some time. More

A group of Canadian Divers from Dan's Dive Shop took a chance to board a plane and I drove and met them here where we experienced some great wreck diving, whale and dolphin encounters and of course the beautiful Bell Island Mine. Well worth the trip so far. The dive boat crew have been spectacular, captain Bill has made us... More

We did the fishing tour and had such a good time and we caught our limit of Cod! The guide was so professional, knowledgeable and fun. Would do this again!

Scuba diving has taken me to some cushy Caribbean resorts and some stunning cold water destinations across Canada - but Ocean Quest is by far the best, friendliest, safest, most accommodating and enjoyable crew and resort I've had the pleasure of diving with. The wrecks themselves are world class (I mean it -- especially in early summer with clearer water),... More

My first trip to Newfoundland and I had such an amazing time with Ocean Quest Adventures diving and staying at their resort. We dove the Bell Island wrecks and also went for a tour of the mine and Grebes Nest. Rick and Debbie are wonderful hosts. Always smiling and making sure everyone is having fun and have what they need.... More

Ocean Quest are one of the best dive operators I've had the pleasure of giving my money too! Their resort is fantastic - lovely rooms, a huge kitchen with everything you could possibly require, on site dive facilities, lots of storage room, washer and dryer, a beautiful lounge, and two decks with great views. They even have a full on... More
