We cater for single diver’s right through to large dive groups/clubs with accommodation packages available.
We also have the largest day dive boat on the Gold Coast “Whale Watcher’ is a 15m catamaran licensed for 30 divers. With most trips we limit our numbers down to a comfortable 24 divers – check out THE BOAT page for full details and photos.
Diving the Gold Coast and Tweed Heads coastline is spectacular, just off Point Danger you will find some of the best untapped diving on the East Coast of Australia. The dives range from easy scenic dives off Cook Island with a resident turtle population, Cook Island has a large abundance of tropical and sub-tropical fish species and leopard sharks during summer. For the more experienced diver we can head out to places like Nine mile reef which is a brilliant drift dive starting in 10 meters of water droping away to 30 m, this is were all the pelagics hang during summer and large numbers of grey nurse move in during the winter.
We also have some amazing pinnacles which drop more than 25 meters in strait walls of rock with swim throughs were there are resident queensland groper and large schools of king fish.
If you are looking for a real thrill we can head down to the spectacular Windarra banks which is a large plato rising from 70 m upto around 20 m this is truly a sight to see. This place holds large amounts of fish life including grey nurse sharks(winter), queensland grouper, different species of cod, kingfish, amberjack, marlin and many other pelagics through summer.
So if your thinking of Diving the Gold Coast drop on in, say hello and join us on one of our great dive trips!!!
