Diving on the Sunshine Coast is quite simply too easy.
Not only do the coral reefs rival the marine diversity of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll only need to spend 20 minutes on a boat getting out to the action.

This is why the Sunshine Coast attracts local, state, interstate and international divers.

Combine the sheer diversity of life, richness of the waters, vivid colours and lack of coral bleaching and the Sunshine Coast becomes a veritable diving haven.
