Sunshine, fish, calm seas – What a great way to kick off 2018! Today, we ventured on a snorkeling trip to the third largest sand island in the world, Moreton Island, where we spent the day snorkeling at Tangalooma Wrecks.

Goooooooood morning Australia!!!!
After much planning, several episodes of poor weather and shuffling around we have finally managed to get out there (under there…) for another dive!
What a great day! Spending the first day of the Christmas break SCUBA diving practically in our own backyard in the Sunshine Coast at a locally known dive site, Hanging Rock.
Hanging Rock is easily accessible by boat. Leaving from SeaLife Aquarium, our trip out was about 10-15 minutes and was blessed with calm conditions. The site is mostly a leveled dive site which reaches a maximum depth of just over 18m with a centrally located rocky overhang sitting smug as the main event. This harbours coral, fish and various other creatures and critters.
Broadcasting out to 1/3 of the world… Merry Christmas & Happy Bubbles!

Feel free to check out the short clip below of some of what we saw. There were also a few Grey Nurse Sharks but unfortunately didn’t catch any on film (yes, yes – that’s what they all say…)
Yesterday we were at the Gold Coast Seaway, where we went for a shore dive. After a range of hiccups during the dive from equalising problems to a broken fin straps, we managed to get a short dive in and a few pictures to go with it. There was also a Queensland Grouper in the area, which unfortunately I didn’t get to see. Maybe next time…
We’ve been pretty busy lately, so it’s been a while since posting and it’ll likely be a while before the next one. In the meantime, happy bubbles!
