If you are thinking about visiting the Sunshine Coast, there are plenty of amazing sights and experiences that you are going to want to consider getting into. One which is particularly popular with both locals and tourists alike is scuba diving. If you have never been scuba diving before, there are few places to do it which are quite as good as the Sunshine Coast, if only for the sheer number of original and amazing sights that you can see underwater here. Let’s take a look at some of the things you might expect to see if you go scuba diving in the Sunshine Coast.
This is one of the top diving sites anywhere in Australia, and it’s easy to see why once you are there and see it for yourself. With a half day trip, you can get a day of scuba diving from this beautiful ship, including two dives from the HMAS Brisbane itself. You will also be treated to a range of gourmet refreshments during the intervals, including savoury danish food, a selection of homemade deluxe biscuits, fruit, cappuccino and chai latte, and hot gourmet soup. Then, you will be given a drink of your choice while logging your dives, to help you unwind from it all. Come to one of the top diving sites on Sunshine Coast if you are scuba diving for the first time and you want to see it all.
Another popular site that you can visit in the area while scuba diving is the Mooloolaba reefs. Known as Clown Reef, you can be sure that you are going to find many amazing things to look at here, and it is some of the most beautiful coral anywhere in the world. Scuba diving is all about finding these amazing sights, so you will want to consider this diving spot if you are keen to see some coral in particular. For the normal price, you can get two dives from Mooloolaba reef, and a whole day around the experience too.
Grey Nurse Shark Dive
If you would like to try out something even more exciting, and with something of an extreme edge, then you might want to consider taking the Grey Nurse Shark Dive instead. With this scuba experience, you will have two shark dives with the endangered and beautiful Grey Nurse sharks. There is a chance that you will get to see up to 25 sharks, so this really is a beautiful experience you will never forget. Plus, you don’t have to worry about safety – you will be diving with one of our experienced scuba divers, one to every six participants, so it is perfectly safe and you will know nothing will go wrong. Then, you can have baked goods and fruit when you resurface. And on the unlikely chance that you don’t see any sharks, you will receive a refund from the price.
Flinders Reef & Cherubs Cave
One of the two major diving sites at Moreton Bay, Flinders Reef gives you a beautiful experience with three dives for the day. This is a great option for those who want to get even more for their money, and if you are really keen to visit as much of the area underwater as possible. If you are keen to take your time and take it all in, this is probably the place that you will want to go. You will have our usual experienced divers on hand for each dive, so you know that you are going to be safe and well throughout.
If you want to try out the other site at Moreton Bay, that is the well-known Cherubs Cave, which is a great spot for seeing some amazing underwater life. The staff at Cherubs Cave have been rated the number one reef dive in South East Queensland, so you know that you are going to be able to trust them and that you will get exactly the experience you have been hoping for. This is a great spot to go to for any first-time divers who want extra help on feeling safe and happy throughout the experience. Although of course, you are going to feel that way at any of these diving sites.
