Dive HMAS Brisbane Report 24th - 31st January 2011

We managed to find a couple of days of good weather during the week and got the boat out to the HMAS BRISBANE and also to the Gneering Shoals. Latest HMAS Brisbane Weather Forecast

Visibility was slowly improving with viz lifting from 5 metres to 8 metres an the Brisbane and from 4 metres to 8 metres on the reef. A little more wind and and a little more swell put paid to any ideas of diving over the weekend just gone. This week looks like being a goer with good conditions predicted for Monday thru to Wednesday and visibility should improve dramatically as the S.E. winds we’ve been experiencing these past days, are just what we need to bring in that clear water.

It’s a good time to come in a talk about any speciality course that you may have been contemplating. We are well suited to getting the theory side and paper work all sorted and be ready waiting for the ocean dive portion of the course. We have some great in store specials on 2 scuba packages and some good deals on wetsuits while stocks last.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Report 15th - 22nd January 2011

Queensland floods;
Our hearts go out to those folk who have been affected through loss of loved ones and/or property during these recent tragic floods. The whole situation leaves me speechless.
Latest HMAS Brisbane Weather Forecast
Mooloolaba and the Sunshine Coast:

Although we have had much more rain than we ever needed, we have come through the recent down pours unscathed. There were some businesses affected in low lying areas and some roads were closed for a short time however Mooloolaba and Blue Water got through the whole experience with no damage whatsoever.

The strong winds and swell has been our main concern. Prior to the latest crisis, we had been diving with quite good conditions. As mentioned in our previous report, there has been dirty water from the rainwater run off, for the top 4-5 metres, but under that we have had great visibility.

We haven’t dived for just over a week now but are hoping to get out on Wednesday to check out conditions. This is a great time then to check your equipment and get anything serviced or replaced that may be due or that needs attention. Be ready for when the conditions become diveable. The tourism industry, the coast community and we need your support to keep staff employed which in turn keeps the big wheel turning. So it’s business as usual here on the coast and as mentioned before, we should be back in the water again soon.

Meanwhile, drop in for a chat, check out some of our specials and up coming trips and courses.

Dive HMAS Brisbane Report 5th January - 12th January 2011

Happy New Year!!! What will 2011 bring us all. We are hoping for some great diving.
Latest HMAS Brisbane Weather Forecast

The year has started off well. With all of the rain we’ve had I think a lot of divers have written off diving for the time being. This is a bit of a pity as we have had some classic dives on the HMAS Brisbane recently. There has been some surface current which is very unusual for us here on the Sunshine Coast. Usually if there is any current, it is after strong northerlies and the current runs to the south. This current is running to the north and has been around for about a week now. It is easing off though. With the current comes some green water that produces only about 4-5 metres viz, however, under that the viz has been opening up to a beautiful warm, blue 20-25 metres viz.

Surface conditions have certainly calmed down compared to what we had around Christmas. Viz on the Gneerings has been good with the same warm blue water there as well.

Take advantage of these warm days and the good viz and venture out for a dive.

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

Flat seas and 20 metres visibility. I bet there are some doubters out there who would never have guessed that the conditions would be so good after all the rain we’ve had.
Latest HMAS Brisbane Weather Forecast

Well, believe it or not, that’s the conditions we’ve had on the HMAS BRISBANE at the end of last week and over the weekend.
We’ve also had a good 15 metres viz at Wobby Rock and Fairyland on the Gneerings.
Heaps of bait fish over Fairyland and lots of life in general.

Those who put a lot of faith in the long range weather predictions would have noticed that the predictions have been changing by the day. We do look at these but there’s nothing like checking out the predictions the afternoon before and then taking on board what conditions have been like before we make our decision whether to dive or not. In spite of all the poor weather and negative predictions, we have had some great dive conditions of late. There have been some cancellations when conditions are not safe however, some good diving has been there for the taking.

We’ll hope the clear water stays around now for a while and that we get a good run with the weather over the Christmas break.

We will be open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and News Years Day.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and remember to,
Dive Safe
