We run Sunshine Coast Safari’s once a month (usually towards the end of the month).

The trip itself is tailored to self-sufficient divers who have mastered their buoyancy control. The guide is there to provide surface support with any gear issues, provide a site briefing and lead the dives for those that would like to follow. Divers who haven’t quite mastered their buoyancy in the cold water or who require some extra attention and support are recommended to start with one of our Local Safari’s.

Cancellation Policy:

Important: Sea Lions are wild animals, and as such we cannot guarantee sightings. Please also note that these sites are very weather dependent. We will not know until the day before whether or not the sites will be possible, if they are not we will choose another dive site instead. We do not offer credits or refunds if the trip location is changed. If we need to cancel the trip due to weather, an alternate trip or in-store credit will be offered.
