Sunshine Coast Mooloolaba – Freediving
The Sunshine Coast offers clear warm waters and is one of the premier dive sites in Australia. The EX-HMAS BRISBANE warship was scuttled in 2005 2.9 Nautical miles off the coast so only a short boat ride out. The 133m warship served in both the Vietnam and Gulf Wars and now is home to an array of life both big and small and is the perfect place for Freediving with the ship reaching up to 5m from the surface for us to easily explore.
We have also added Nurse Rock for our PADI Freediver courses to our local Sunny Coast trips which is where Grey Nurse Sharks have been congregating over the past years, where you can have an amazing up close and personal experience with these gentle Sharks.
We firstly explore line Freediving, demonstrating Free Immersion, constant weight, and a rescue to complete our PADI requirements. Next we’ll explore the Warship which has some incredible swim throughs and an abundance of life to view.. It features cannons where we have had some amazing Sher impersonations, and many ‘King or the World Titanic’ re-enactments at the stern.
During winter we also have the option of diving at Wobbey Rock with grey nurse shark’s who have made that rock their home.
We’ll finish the day with a few drinks and some food at The Dock Mooloolaba to celebrate what we have achieved and talk about all the wildlife we saw that will continue to get bigger and bigger as the afternoon progresses.
