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.

Day One: We meet at Sunreef Mooloolaba, a 5-Star Dive centre on 123 Parkyn Parade at the Mooloolaba Wharf, for our freediving theory, Breathworkshop/Mindfulness/Yoga. We then head to Kawana Aquatic Centre, 45 Sportman’s Parade, Bokarina, 4575. Here we explore Pool Freediving which will prepare us for the Ocean day on Day 2. At the aquatic centre we will practise our static breath hold, dynamic swims, duck diving and rescues in the 3.7m deep pool and just some general fun along the way.

Day 2 We meet back at Sunreef Mooloolaba again, where we depart for the EX-HMAS Brisbane which is about 15 minutes out of the river and no more than 15m out from the Mooloolaba Spit.

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.
