Highlights of a visit to the Whitsunday's

Diver at the Yongala shipwreck

Diving and snorkelling

The Whitsunday Islands are surrounded in fringing reefs, shallow diving and rich in diversity. Just 16nm offshore is the outer barrier reef, big marine life and big drop offs. We can organise tours to the world famous Yongala shipwreck dive, a 109m steamship that sank in a cyclone in 1911, now covered in coral and surrounded in life. If you want to see BIG marine life and lots of it, this is the dive for you. Expect to see sharks, stingrays, turtles, huge grouper and sea snakes.
