About the event:

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 the Collective Ambassadors for a double dive on arguably the best wreck dive in Australia. The ex-HMAS Brisbane which was intentionally sunk in 2005 to create a one-of-a-kind artificial reef & dive site and is well known with both international and local divers alike.

The Canon Collective will bring along for your exclusive use, a G Series Canon Camera in a dive housing to borrow for your double dive. The day will begin with a 15 minute classroom instructional pre-dive session on the top 5 tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your underwater adventure before jumping onboard the boat to head out to the dive site for an external look at the 133 meter long missile destroyer.

Then during the surface interval of snacks and coffee, we'll give you guidance on the use of underwater flash and torch before our second dive, penetrating the wreck and into the darkness of the missile control room.

After the double dives we will all head back to the Sunreef Dive Centre at the Mooloolaba Marina for a sausage sizzle and a cold drink, whilst the awesome staff clean all your dive gear.

The double dive has a starting price of $195 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 Dive Centre. Your loan Canon camera is included free of charge.

You just need to bring a empty SD card of at least 8GB with you on the day to pop into your loan camera. The Collective will take care of all the cameras, cleaning, charging etc. and will sort them post dive also.

Wreck diving does require a dive torch, you can hire one of these from Sunreef Dive Centre if you don't have one already.

Bookings are through Sunreef Dive Center, for more information contact: (07) 5444 5656 and speak with the awesome staff about booking the "HMAS Canon Collective trip" and they will ensure you're put into our group. Please advise them at that time if you intend on provide your own camera or would like to take advantage of one of the loan kits from Canon.
