Stand at the ready at your Gold Coast hotel and enjoy included pickup and the short ride to the marina. Board your boat and cruise to Wave Break Island. Suit up with the provided diving gear upon arrival. If you’ve chosen the introductory dive, learn shallow water safety basics first. Next, practice different diving techniques, memorize rules, and understand how to use diving equipment. When you’re ready, get back on board the boat and sail to one of the island’s dive sites. Spend several hours around the island. Your guided dive is led by a PADI-certified instructor. Alternately, if you have dive certification, make a solo dive whenever you’d like. Once you've had your fill of diving, take advantage of some free time to swim, snorkel, or have a drink onboard the boat. Sail back to the marina, where a driver is waiting to take you back to your hotel.

        Great experience... really made the Gold Coast us!
        This is a must to do if visiting The Gold Coast . What makes this so special? Well a great guide, a real personal touch from Lollie who was friendly, helpful and made us feel super safe as we did a dive down to 12 meters. Saw some amazing fish, had a snorkel after and had some free soft drinks. If you want to try scuba this is a great place to do it.

        unhelpful and boring
        we were supposed to be picked up at 7.30 at our hostel. At 7.45, they told me to order a uber, and to hurry because « we were late ». Nothing to see there, no colors, few fishes but nothing interesting.

        TERRIBLE
        Extremely rude and unprofessional company. Booked two snorkelling experiences for my daughter. They refused to pick her up from her hotel!! This was part of the purchase "transport included". When contacted to organise it, they were rude and unhelpful stating it was her fault/they don't offer it/you have to select it on purchase! Every excuse under the sun. I would NOT recommend booking a snorkelling tour with this company!!

        Amazing course
        The whole team were so great over the 3 day open water course. Jak was a great instructor and made me feel at ease from the first moment. Would highly recommend these guys for anything from a snorkelling day trip, to becoming a qualified dive instructor.

        Highly recommend!!! they were amazing with my 14 year old son. We were a bit nervous at first but they assured us they would take good care of him and that they did! Annie was my sons instructor and she was just lovely! This experience will be something he will never forget and is already busting to come back and do the advanced. Be seeing you soon I’m sure!

        10/10 would visit again!
        Had a wholesome experience with QLD scuba diving company. The service were superb through out the 3 day course Padi open water course. My instructor, Manuel, was very patience, passionate to teach us despite me having difficulties performing some techniques. He ensures I do it till I get it right and also prioritise safety. Overall I would patronise QLD scuba diving company again in the future for their amazing service, crews, friendship and destination.

        Safe, Welcoming and Worth-the-money
        Had a very great experience during the three days at the Open Water Diving Course. Instructors were super friendly and welcoming, my instructor who was in charge, Manuel, was extremely patient, detail-oriented and he gives clear instructions as well. Despite Manuel being the only instructor to 4 students, he was attentive to all of us, helping us out when we have difficulties and provide advice and help when we need it. I felt safe and guided throughout the entire course and I would definitely enrol in the advanced open water course with the company in the near future.

        Great experience with professional instructor
        Just finish my open water course, and I enjoyed the diving experience and the price is very affordable. My instructor, Manuel, is very professional, knowledgeable and patient when he was teaching me. His instructions were absolutely clear and when I'm uncertain about any drills or question, he will be very willing to teach me again. Thank you, Manuel, for the guidance and Thank you Queensland Scuba Diving Company for making me feel welcomed.

        Safe, fun and practical course
        Just completed the 3-day open water course with my 12-yr-old son. Found the course very safe, fun and practical. No simulated or pool based diving, all ocean diving from day one - the benefit of this is that you’re in the environment you’ll be diving in and you don’t develop any false sense of security that some might find starting in a pool. Great staff who were all friendly, approachable and knowledgeable - thanks to diving instructors Annie, Jack and Chris for a great experience, looking forward to future dives with this company.

        The crew at Qld Scuba Dive are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and fun! I did my Open Water PADI course with them and had an incredible time. The instructors are so patient and down to earth and capable of giving clear and concise direction. Anthony was informative and always there to answer questions or help out with any requests. Highly recommend! I will be completing the rescue course with them at the end of this month!

      I had a fantastic morning with 2 of my kids. This was our first time scuba diving and I was very nervous about the safety of my kids. Vini, our instructor,was very patient and made us all feel at ease while getting the instructor role done efficiently. I couldn't recommend this experience anymore - the kids, and I couldn't wait to do more scuba after it!!
      Thanks to the whole team at Qld Scuba and in particular Vini for making this such a special occasion for me (as a worried father) and my kids!

      I'm an experienced diver, but I went along on this to be with my son on his first dive. As a former professional diver, I was under strict orders from my wife regarding our son's safety--especially since I'd admitted to her that it was likely to be a rough day. She needn't have worried. The operation is safe, sligh and efficient, and the dive site was right for entry level dive experiences even though the wind and waves were up a bit. One might expect Wave Break Island to be a bit mundane (we had snorkelled there a couple of days previously on a kayak tour), but it is actually home to more marine life than many sites used in Intro Dives and Basic Open Water courses. I noticed a couple of quite challenging trainees in our group, and the dive staff handled them patiently, safely and cheerfully.

      You can rent a GoPro, and keep the SD card afterwards, for not much more than the price of an SD card--great value. Our instructor went out of his way to capture stills and short videos of us.

      My son's now keen to do a certification course, which should help keep him off computer games.

      We were lucky enough to have great weather which made for a great day of diving. It was about 4 hours in total from start to end. So getting there, filling put paperwork, getting the ger set up etc. A 15 minute boat trip to the island and the restis spent snorkeling/ diving.

      It was our first dive and the staff were great and everything was explained really well.

      The location was great for beginners and there were plenty of fish around.

      It was reasonably priced and all the equipment was clean and in great condition.

      The only negative was that it felt as though we werr waiting around for others a bit, but that should be expected on these types of things.

      I would recommend for day out.

      P.s. Anthony was great!

      This scuba diving session was cancelled by the Queensland Scuba diving company due to bad weather. However they are unable to process the refund as i had done the booking through you (tripadvisor) and they requested me to contact you for the refund and they will process the same once you reach out to them. Your processes are so complicated as i could not find any category to claim refund for event cancellation. could you kindly help process the refund for the booking ref# Br-1071420687
