The Gold Coast is a world class holiday destination that attracts millions of visitors each year, from interstate and overseas. There is no shortage of things to do and the options are almost unlimited. One of the most incredible things to do on your Gold Coast holiday is to learn how to scuba dive with PADI and Gold Coast Dive Adventures. So why should you take your PADI Open Water Course here and not elsewhere?
Here are the top reasons why you should not wait any longer and start right here and today.

300 days of sunshine a year

The subtropical climate is the reason why the Gold Coast is a dream holiday destination all year round. With day time temperatures of about 22-24 degrees in winter and around 30 degrees in summer, there is no season that is better than an other.

Incredible beaches and warm water

The laid back beach lifestyle is typical Gold Coast. The water temperature does usually not drop below 18 degrees in winter and reaches up to 26 degrees in summer. The man-made canals and waterways including the Gold Coast Seaway provide easy access to the ocean for recreational boats and commercial vessel operators.

Variety of Dive Site

We are pleased to have access to many local dive sites to suit any experience level. One of our most famous dive sites are the historic wreck of the Scottish Prince, Migaloo Reef, Greta’s Reef, Mermaid Reef and Palm Beach Reef but there is more! We are lucky enough to have protected inshore dive sites as well including the Gold Coast Seaway and Wave Break Island.

Incredible Marine Life

Australia can proudly say that we have it all! The Gold Coast reefs and wrecks are home to rays, sharks, dolphins, turtles, soft coral, tropical fish and more. In winter we share the waters with humpback whales and in summer the Leopard Sharks and Manta Rays are cruising past.
