What are our favourite sites for Brisbane diving?

The Tweed River and Gold Coast seaway dive sites are both great shore dives. They have easy access and plenty of parking. These options are great for the keen diver looking for a free dive. Further, these dive sites host a number of marine wildlife. Indeed, we have spotted eagle rays and turtles in these locations. Moreover, you can explore these sites on an epic night dive. Imagine capturing the marine wildlife that reign over the ocean at night! It is the perfect opportunity for your Facebook or Instagram account. Additionally, dolphins are sometimes seen frolicking on the surface close to these areas. They are always on the prowl for an easy feed!

Moreton Island, Stradbroke Island, Tweed Heads and Byron Bay are also located only a stone’s throw from Brisbane. These areas have dive sites like Flat Rock, Cook Island, Manta Bommie, Flinders Reef and the epic HMAS Brisbane wreck. These dive sites offer the opportunity to see corals, stunning tropical fish, manta rays, turtles, and sharks. In addition, you have the opportunity to catch the whales during winter. The whales are breaching on the surface, swimming with you on your dive or serenading you while you explore the underwater world.
