Ever wanted to explore the world of underwater Photography in a safe environment off the beautiful Queensland Sunshine coast? Here is your opportunity to join local ambassador Colin Baker for a double dive in conjunction with Sunreef and guest host Garry Cobb—the local expert on all things Nudibranch—exploring some local Sunny Coast reefs off to the East of Mooloolaba.
Colin will bring along for your exclusive use a Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera in a dive housing to borrow for your double dive (please advise the staff when booking if you’re bringing your own camera on the day). The adventure will begin with check in at 7:30am, before jumping on board the boat to head out to the dive sites. A few of the dive site options are Hanging Rock, Shellacry Reef, Col’s Hole, The Trench & Johnno’s Gulley. The first site will be picked on the day for best visibility and conditions in conjunction with Garry’s local knowledge.
Then during the surface interval water, snacks and coffee, Colin can give you guidance on any questions before our second dive, we may also change dive sites during the interval pending weather or visibility on the day or potential sightings of significance.
After the double dives, we will all head back to Sunreef at the Mooloolaba Marina for some refreshments, then once everyone’s dry, we’ll head back to the classroom for a chat with Garry about all things Nudibranch.
The double dive has a starting price of $129 including all of the above, tanks and weights. Any further rental dive equipment you require (ie. BCD, wetsuit) can be discussed and arranged no problem with the helpful staff at Sunreef. Your loan Canon camera is included free of charge just ensure you bring a SD card with you.
Sunreef offers free Nitrox tank fills if you’re certified for enriched air, if you’d like to gain Nitrox certification please discuss with the loverly staff at Sunreef.
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 and will sort them post dive also.
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 ‘Nudi’ boat on the 9th of December with Colin & Garry” and they will ensure you’re put into the Canon Collective group.
