We aim to provide certified divers with a unique adventure trip to the historic S.S.Yongala wreck.

Exploring the S.S. Yongala is a diving experience matched by few other places on the planet. The combination of the wreck’s mysterious history and the vast amount of resident marine life make the Yongala a must-do bucket list dive. As a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort uniquely positioned in Alva Beach (Ayr, QLD), we are the fastest way to get to the wreck. We offer amazing diving with small groups and experienced dive staff.

To dive with us, you need to hold Open Water certification with 6 logged dives and deep dive training. Open Water divers must complete Deep Orientation dive (underwater skills) with a PADI Dive Instructor during the 1st dive at the wreck (extra cost applies). This may be counted towards the PADI Advanced course at extra costs (text book required) The more experienced divers can choose to dive with a buddy or take a guided tour at no extra cost.

Novice divers (those with less than 20 dives) should ensure they have refreshed their skills within the last six months and will be provided with a dive guide (if adventure or advanced certified) or maybe required to take a Deep Orientation dive (extra cost applies).

Minimum age – 16 years of age.
