Gold Coast Dive Adventures is a PADI Dive Centre built around the foundation of ‘diving with purpose’. Our oceans are a kaleidoscope of constantly changing images and experiences that continually amaze even the most experienced divers. There are endless adventures to be had when we descend below the surface to witness the diverse marine ecosystem. Our purpose is to share this underwater world with you, and build your skills and capabilities to explore the planets many marine ecosystems. Not just to observe its beauty and its wonder but also to understand its importance to our planet and the entire ecosystem that humans need for survival.

Highly Experienced Team

To enjoy this underwater world you need to feel safe, confident, and assured that you are trained and looked after by instructors that possess unsurpassed experience. Our Dive Instructors and owners of Gold Coast Dive Adventures provide this for you. You are guaranteed to be trained by highly experienced dive professionals. Our instructors are qualified to teach all PADI courses including any specialty you might want, and we can also do this in Spanish should you require! Our courses are offered privately, in small groups and in family groups to ensure we can enhance your underwater experience in a manner that is most comfortable for you.

Shark Diving and Education

In winter we will be offering a ‘Shark Diving and Education’ program.  This is co-owner Harry’s signature experience for anyone desiring to understand and respect sharks as much as he does. This program is a unique educational adventure about sharks, the many different species, their lifestyles, their struggles, their habitats and the importance of their role in our world’s ecosystems, both below and above the water. Most importantly, you will get the opportunity to go meet them in their own environment where you can enhance your new knowledge with real-life experience. When you understand what they do, why, and their role in the oceans we are confident you will join us in protecting them from the many challenges that they are currently facing.

Above it all, Gold Coast Dive Adventures is about creating a community of friends who are skilled and informed divers, so that we can all experience and help protect the enchanted world which lies beneath the ocean.
