The Gold Coast is a diving destination on its own. Gold Coast Dive Adventures has incorporated our love for such an amazing part of Australia and created a comprehensive library of Gold Coast dive sites. We are continually exploring these relatively uncharted waters to bring you the best dive sites possible and to create memories that will last a lifetime.

We understand our obligation and yours as explorers, to protect what this incredible earth has presented to us for our future generations. Here at Gold Coast Dive Adventures we also strive to raise awareness around ocean research programs that study the most fascinating marine life including humpback whales, sharks and manta rays just to name a few.
