Gold Coast Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

Few cities in the world have better scuba diving (and snorkeling) conditions at such easily accessible locations than the Gold Coast. Couple these wonderful sites with spectacular weather and you'll see why the Gold Coast truly is a scuba divers paradise.

From the natural diversity of the Gold Coast seaway, to the numerous wrecks and reefs sitting just off the coastline, there's more coral, marine life, and general intrigue in the Gold Coast waterways than you'll find just about anywhere.

The local diving infrastructure caters for every level of experience, so whether you want to do a hardcore, deep water night dive around sharks or jump in the shallow end of a swimming pool for beginner's lessons, this is your place.
