Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 28th April - 5th May 2010

The Inner Gneerings produced some 20 metre viz today, Wednesday. With water temp still on 24C, it was great to see such crystal clear water at The Caves.
Latest Coast Weather Forecast

When you look over the side off the boat and can see fish swimming on the bottom, you know that you've got some clear water to dive in.

The HMAS BRISBANE also produced some great conditions today. Viz on the big ship was 15-20 metres with plenty of marine life around as well. Light winds should hold for the rest of the week and the seas have flattened out. Let's hope this weather hangs around for the weekend.

Kelly returned from the Solomon's trip with many a story to tell. It's always interesting with these group dive holidays. The interesting point that I enjoy is the meeting of people from many different walks of life. They all have a story in life and with the different personalities within the group, it always makes for an interesting trip.

Tony is off soon to Sipadam with his group of 15 divers.

I get to enjoy Port Vila and then the Coolidge again in late October when I take another group to dive Vanuatu. We have quite a number of bookings for this trip already with a number of others making idle threats to join the group. This is always a great location with some easy diving in warm clear, still water to start off with before heading to Santo for some deeper diving on the USS President Coolidge.

The weekend trip aboard the MV Venus to Lady Musgrave Island still has room for any interested divers. This is another opportunity to meet interesting divers and get a heap of diving in, in just 3 days. Interested??? Call the dive centre for more details.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 20th April - 27th April 2010

From glass outs and 25 metre viz to rough seas and lots a wind. It all happens so quickly. Thankfully, it changes the other way just as quick.
Latest Coast Weather Forecast

The foul weather caused us to cancel all diving off the Sunshine Coast over the weekend and it looks like all of this week up till Friday. Let's hope it settles down for the weekend. The signs of this happening are good.

It hasn't been all gloom and doom as we really have had some stunning dive conditions lately. It has just been punctuated with some pretty poor stuff as well.

It's worth mentioning though that through all of this that the HMAS BRISBANE has fared very well. There has been absolutely no damage to the ship. The only problem we had was a couple of the mooring buoys and transit lines need some attention. This didn't stop us from diving but these things needed attention. Thanks to the EPA these repairs were authorised quickly and the contractor was out there first chance and got everything back in order.

Kelly and her group finally got off the ground to the Solomon Islands this morning, a day late, indirectly due to the volcano ash problem. They're all in holiday mood and wern't fazed by the delay after being put up in Brizvagas (Brisbane) for a night.


If becoming a PADI dive instructor has been an aim of yours then we can help you achieve your dream. We have an ace PADI course director in Tony Fontes coming down from Airlie Beach to conduct our program for us in August September this year. For more details please contact the dive centre.

Rescue Course and First Aid.

These courses are planned for the end of the month. First Aid needs prior registration and some home study in preparation for the evening of 28th April. The rescue dive course will be conducted over the May long weekend. Register now if these courses interest you.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 14th April - 21st April 2010

"Flat As", "Glass Out", these are terms that every diver loves to hear, especially when it's coupled with "20-25 metres viz". Well that's how the conditions have been the past couple of days up until and including Monday.
Latest Coast Weather Forecast

Just glorious sea conditions and fantastic dive conditions. The water temp has been sitting on 24C=25C so all in all, simply ideal conditions. Last week produced slight seas and viz hovering between 10-15 and at times 20 metres viz but then the weekend came and the conditions kept getting better.

The marine life on the HMAS BRISBANE was just awesome, heaps of it and a good variety of species with some of our big favourites there once again.

The Gneering Shoals turned on the conditions as well. We were out at Hanging Rock and the divers reported 20 metres viz there on Saturday too.

Kell heads off to the Solomon’s on 19th with a group of 15 other divers. The trip Tony is leading to Sipadam in August has reached its maximum of 15. Then there's the trip to Hideaway Island Vanuatu with the Santo extension in November that I will be leading. This has only a couple of places vacant at this point.

Our sale is officially over now however there are still several items that we are still a bit overstocked with that we will continue to offer on sale till the end of April.

Oceanic Money Madness continues through to the end of April.

We have a Rescue Course planned to commence on the May long weekend.

The PADI Instructor Development Course is planned for 29thAug/Sept with the I.E. on 9th & 10th Sept.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 7th April - 14th April 2010

Easter looked promising a week or more ago but as it drew closer the predictions for the Easter break drew grimmer.
Latest Coast Weather Forecast

The strong winds and swell came in earlier than predicted and put a hold on many expectant divers' plans. Most diving activity was cancelled due to the poor weather conditions however the good news is; IT'S ALL GONE now and we have perfect weather.

The swell is virtually nonexistent and there's barely a breeze blowing. This pattern looks like it will hold for the rest of the week and into the weekend. So if you are a diver who's been waiting for the conditions to settle, the news is, they have and they don't get much better than what you will see over the next few days for a dive on HMAS Brisbane or other Sunshine Coast dive sites.

The marine life on the HMAS BRISBANE wreck is going off. There is just so much activity there with something for every diver from Frog fish to "Barnacle Bill" the huge Kingie that has 3 barnacles over his left eye. Matt was able to swim right up close to him to almost touch him, on his blind side.

LADY MUSGRAVE TRIP; for the diver looking for a dive packed weekend on the Great Barrier Reef, don't forget that there is still room available on our trip aboard MV Venus in early May.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 30th March - 6th April 2010

Although many don’t believe it, the diving has been great. There is absolutely no “fall out” from the cyclone.
Latest Coast Weather Forecast

As mentioned in earlier reports, the diving is good and visibility has also been great. Today, Tuesday we have 20 metres viz on the HMAS BRISBANE and calm seas.

The forecast for the Easter weekend is a bit patchy but we’ve learnt from experience to, certainly, take on board the long range forecast but not to jump to conclusions this far out from the weekend. Conditions look great for the first part of the weekend and we’ll keep and eye out and add a bit of hope too, for the rest of the weekend.

Blue Water will be open every day over Easter with plans to dive HMAS Brisbane and other locations each day as well.

The Sale is still on and although some lines have sold out, there are still some great deals to be had.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Dive Report 24th - 31st March 2010

Well it’s done it again. The HMAS BRISBANE HAS TURNED ON SOME GREAT DIVING.Latest Coast Weather Forecast

After all the bad weather we’ve had, rain and rough seas and we head out to the HMAS BRISBANE yesterday and find flat calm seas and 12-15 metres viz once you got under the 5-6 metres of dirty water on top. The ship was ‘going off’. There was bait fish everywhere and a number of other species (that will remain nameless), to be seen. Divers returned extremely happy with the dives.

Certainly having the MID SHIP MOORING is a winner. It makes for a nice easy dive towards the stern on one dive and the bow on the second and you’ve covered the whole ship without feeling like you’ve run a marathon.

Diving again today on the HMAS BRISBANE was great. Viz was between 8-10 metres but still heaps of life around the big ship.
The ship is in good shape after the big swells and confirms once again that the planning and research that went into the whole project of placing the ship on the bottom, was done properly and made the project a complete success.

We had some open water students diving The caves today also and they had 8-10 metres viz there. So the effects of the bad weather have moved on already.

It just shows you, you’ve got to get out there and have a look. The ones who are sitting at home and guessing, are missing out.
