PADI WRECK DIVER

Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life.

Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed. The PADI Wreck Diver course offers rewarding adventures while observing responsible wreck diving practices.

On this course, you will be diving the former HMAS Brisbane warship, which is a unique conservation park and artificial reef that lies in 28m of water, 9kms off the coast of Mooloolaba.
