About the event:

Join the Canon Collective Team on Lady Elliot Island for 5 days of diving, snorkeling and aerial photography from a C210 plane. Grab your bathers, mask and snorkel and disconnect from the world for a week on the pristine Southern Great Barrier Reef, just East of Bundaberg. Don't have a camera? Don't worry, we've got enough land & underwater loan gear to cover everyone, every day for the duration of this specialised small-group adventure. 

Please note: The event is suited for people with a Padi/SSI dive certification with a minimum qualification of "open water". Don't worry if you don't have a license - contact your local dive shop today and get certified. It's a simple process of theory, practical & open water testing and it's a lifetime certification. It will take a life time to explore the world below the waterline, so what are you waiting for?

Whether you've never explored the reefs with a camera in your hands or you're an advanced underwater photographer, this week will suit those with the desire to try something new whilst sharing your time with like-minded explorers.

Full Itinerary will be supplied in pre-departure to all guests.
