  • This location is shown only to members

Explore the Gold Coast Seaway, one of the most popular shore dive spots on the Gold Coast.

This is a great dive to get to know other divers, or to brush up on some rusty skills.

We will meet at 11:30 at the spit, high tide is at 12:07.

 

Hire Gear and tank fills are available from:

Southport Fish & Dive - phone:[masked]

 

I won't be attending this Meetup as I'll be on North Stradbroke, however John Gransbury will be there running an Open Water Course, certified divers are welcome to join.

 

Please call or email if you have any questions.

    No so great visibility. But great to get wet months less and great to meet you all in person. Look forward to the next one.

      when Manta season hits- head for the cleaning station to the east in the middle of the seaway :). Also keen to do the inbound drift with a group at some stage. Wavebreak is good for turtles if anyone wants to give kayak scuba a go with me too...

    I don't know about you guys, but I found getting in and out a bit of a challenge! Heavy tank, slippery rocks, a bit of swell etc etc. I've fired off an email to GCCC asking them to consider installing some steps or rails........cant hurt hey?

    Poor vis but great fun noetheless. Some very placid shoals. Quite happy to let you swim with them. Good to have some new people to go bubbling with.

    Hey everyone

    This will be my first meet up. Looking for a buddy or a group. The intro says that there is an open water course happening. Anyone have any tips about the seaway for people wanting to do their own thing?

    It's still looking good at Surfers. The rain has past through just north of Southport.

      Thanks Matt. It looks good from up here at Brisbane to. Bit of rain coming through from the south east but looks like it will miss southport.

    • Killian

      Surely rain at this stage won't matter. Won't stop me getting under for a look.

      February 16, 2013

  • Scott

    So, is this rain going to kill conditions tomorrow?

    G'Day Everyone! As Hilton said I am running an Open Water course at the pipes (where the surf taxi leaves from to South Straddie). I will have a Divemaster who is experienced in the area who would love to guide those who want a guide. Otherwise Ryan and I will give briefings/ area orientations to anyone who wants one if you want to just dive with your buddy. My number is[masked] if you have any questions. See you Saturday!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
