sunshine-coast1-e1411073436582Experience the Sunshine Coast!

We run Sunshine Coast Safari’s once a month (usually towards the end of the month). The site we most commonly dive is Tuwanek, where we have frequent encounters with wolf eels, and Giant Pacific Octopus, and much much more. What makes this site a favorite, is the entry (almost little to no walking)!

Cost:

$89.95 + 25% off rental gear

Includes:

  • 2 Tanks, weights
  • 2 Guided shore dives
  • Transportation
  • Ferry Fee

 When:

Meet time is around 8 am (times may vary due to ferry schedule, please call to confirm) and we return around 6 pm (depending on traffic).

Requirements:

Divers must be able to provide proof of certification, and have done at least 4 cold water dives in the last 6 months (some exceptions may apply).

Although the difficulty level of this site is fairly easy, 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.
