They specialise in providing snorkelling and diving trips as well as training of divers as part of a full dive service. Join them today and dive the spectacular SS Yongala Wreck, or snorkel and dive the Great Barrier Reef.
The SS Yongala Wreck is one of Australia's best dive sites! The Yongala Wreck is a national historical wreck that lies within Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The wreck begins at 16 metres below the surface and sits on a sandy bottom at 30 metres. The artefacts, marine life and variety of corals that cover the wreck are spectacular. This is a must do dive for all certified divers!
Or visit the pristine Lodestone Reef located on the Central Section of the Great Barrier Reef with their friendly and professional crew. Their day trip is a perfect way to enjoy unlimited snorkelling, introductory scuba dives or two certified dives. Both snorkelers and divers will be exhilarated witnessing the spectacular marine life that Lodestone has to offer whilst being immersed in tropical crystal clear water.
The S.S. Yongala sank during a cyclone in 1911 with the loss of more than 120 souls. It frequently rates as one of the ten best dives in the world. The wreck begins 16 metres below the surface and extends to a depth to 30 metres.
The Yongala is most famous for the abundant marine life. It is often said that you will see more marine life on one dive on the Yongala Wreck than you will on half a dozen dives on the reef. The wreck is covered in hard and soft corals. During the winter months, the calls of the migrating whales can be heard and occasionally seen around the wreck.
The Yongala Wreck is a 'must do' on your list of dive sites in Australia.
The Outer Barrier Reef is rated as one of the premier snorkeling and dive sites in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. This reef has many shallow areas well suited to snorkeling and introductory diving, as well as deep bommies and swim-throughs for the experienced divers.
Sites such as Student Bommies with a maximum depth of 12 metres have a sandy bottom, excellent coral cover and a diverse array of marine life. Shark Alley is renowned for sightings of black tip and white tip reef sharks, grey reef whaler sharks, giant trevally, and pygmy manta rays (October to December).
Lodestone Reef is an excellent location for diving with large schools of pelagic species, as well as macro species such as the ghost pipe fish.
The absolute best way to see the Great Barrier Reef and the SS Yongala is to live there. See the stunning array of wild life waking up to an explosion of colour and activity. Dive and snorkel into the evening as daylight softly moves to dusk. Be a part of the reef settling down for the night as the last rays of sunlight bathe Wheeler Reef's beautiful coral cay.
The scene is set - three whole days of diving and snorkelling two of the wondrous pearls that go to make up the exquisite necklace that is the Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy diving or snorkelling on some of the most pristine reefs within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Experience unlimited visibility at Wheeler and Davies Reef.
On the last day wake up to dive on one of the world's best wrecks, the SS Yongala. You will witness the feeding frenzy before breakfast then see the daylight marine life emerge after your surface interval. This site is definitely not one to miss, and is a must do for all divers!
