One of the best dive sites in South East Queensland is our magnificent Flinders Reef, a coral atoll north of Moreton Island in the open ocean. There are at least 10 dive sites at this reef including Aldens Cave and the Turtle Cleaning station where you will come face to face with at least 6 huge turtles waiting in line for the fish to remove the barnacles and growths from their shells. All sites are weather dependant so we will travel to the best site on the day.
Please Note: Private tanks must be in test for us to fill them onboard.
Sidemount/Twins/Rebreathers are welcome on recreational dive days, but you must dive to our recreational limits. Rebreathers must have a Certification Card for the unit they are diving with. Please tell us your gear configuration at time of booking.
There are no DIN tanks available onboard. If you own DIN regs, you will have to supply either DIN tanks or a DIN adaptor for use with our yoke tanks. We require you to bring the DIN insert for your valve to allow us to fill your tank for the second dive.
