S.S. Yongala Wreck In Australia: Wreck Dive Extraordinaire

by Paul Ross
(Sale Victoria)

“I CANNOT IMAGINE A MUCH BETTER DIVE ANYWHERE, NOR CREW”


One of the top-ten wreck dives in the world was a big brag to measure up to--BUT from the super friendly helpful crew of the 'Yongala Dive" to the unique 3o minute trip out to the site in tropical perfect conditions, 20 + visibility, 23 degree water, and then to descend gently into a perfect ship-wreck, lying on its side, with sides open to view all the incredible marine life was like looking into some huge aquarium.

They promised turtles, sea snakes, reef sharks,resident Bull shark, giant cod, giant Trevally, myriads of assorted large tropical fish,-up close in in the school!- clear views of the interior according to the map provided, showing toilets (not working) and bath tub plus moray eels, coral, fans, sponges, colour and constant breath-taking photographers delight--------well we saw everything promised and more.

Top ten--possibly, must be in top three in world! Our guides not only helped us gear up, carrying our gear,(really!) taking on our extra personal equipment, providing surface time feasting, pointing out underwater features and sea life otherwise missed--but then went out of their way to get legally close to Whales and baby calves-which one could hear singing when on the wreck.

Typical dive humour and friendliness was the norm from all of the crew at all times right through to the free BBQ and offers to help us get back to Townsville or into the bus depot, or put us up for the night.

I found nothing to complain about and everything to rave about. It was worth every penny and I WILL do it again and again-with this company.

Enjoy the experience, C U in the bubbles!
