Our guest speaker will be educating us on the Saturday night about the amazing Grey Nurse Sharks that congregate here off Stradbroke Island.

Come for the whole weekend or part of it, and join in this annual event that is as packed with activity as you want it!! Bring along your non-diving partners to have a kick-back, relaxing weekend on a sublimely beautiful island. They too, can join in any of the above-water activities that we have to offer during the day and the evening, so they don’t need to feel “left out”! and go off and explore the island during the day while you are out exploring our underwater playgrounds!

Come away from the weekend with loads of memories, lots of photos to keep and share.
