About Yongala Day Dive Trip

Yongala Dive specialise in one thing, dive trips to the Yongala wreck. This operator is located the closest to the wreck, which means less time travelling and more time in the water. Yongala Dive limits passenger numbers to just 12 people, to ensure personalized service and attention. There’s no restricted bottom time, so dive time depends on your air consumption, experience level and depth. Everything about the Yongala Dive day trip is an adventure. It begins with a 4WD transfer to the beach, followed by a short 30-minute transfer to the wreck and time for two (2) dives with a minimum one (1) hour surface interval. When the diving is done, it’s back to Yongala Dive for an Aussie BBQ. The Yongala is an adventure dive and as such there’s some strict diver requirements. You must at a minimum have an Open Water certification and at least 6 logged dives. Divers with less than 20 dives must be guided. This Yongala day dive tour commences with check-in at the dive ship at 7.30am and finishes with a coach transfer to Ayr, for a 3.25pm bus(if required). For your convenience, Yongala Dive also provides onsite accommodation. This is a very popular dive and should be booked in advance.
