About the event:

You've been asking and we are so happy to deliver, we are heading back to the world famous dive & snorkel site "Flinders Reef"

Join Canon Collective ambassadors, Colin Baker and Greg Sullavan, on this monumental dive site where the adventure will begin with checkin at 7:00am at the shop, then jumping on board the boat to head out to Flinders. Its a long ride but Sunreef have the fastest boat in the region to get us there and back in style and speed. This is the first trip where we will offer both snorkel and diving options at the same time on the same boat so this will suit proficient swimmers as well as qualified divers. We'll bring along for your exclusive use either a PowerShot G1 X Mark III, PowerShot G1 X Mark II or PowerShot G7 X camera in a 40m dive housing to borrow for your double dive or snorkel.

A full camera briefing will occur on the boat prior to entry of the water on the dive site. Both Colin and Greg will accompany the Sunreef dive master and diving guests to the bottom of Flinders (approx 18m max) and Alicia from Sunreef will accompany the snorkelers at the surface which is just a good as the diving on this exceptional coral reef. We're pumped to offer this dual dive/snorkel event, Flinders is simply the best and we are so excited.

Then during the surface interval water, snacks and coffee, Colin and Greg can give you guidance on any questions before our second dive/snorkel. So this gives you a chance to relax and double check your settings between sessions. After the double dives and snorkels are completed we will all head back to Sunreef at the Mooloolaba Marina to clean up, get warm and dry and then depart for home around 5pm.

The cost:
   Diving: $229 inc tanks and weights (double dive, 2 tanks)
   Snorkel: $159 per person

IMPORTANT: You need to bring an SD memory card of at least 8GB with you on the day to pop into your loan camera. Colin will take care of all the cameras, cleaning, charging etc. All bookings and payments need to be confirmed with Sunreef and to book simply phone (07) 5444 5656 and speak with the awesome staff about booking the "Canon Flinders Reef boat on the 25th of November with Colin & Greg" and advise if you'd like the snorkel option or you're after the diving experience. They will ensure you're put into the right group.

NOTE: To dive on this trip you require a Padi/SSI equivalent diving license to participate in this exercise. If you'd like to snorkel you don't need any qualifications but you would need to self asses your swimming ability and your comfort swimming in an open ocean environment.
