  • This location is shown only to members

Spend the weekend with some Manta Rays!

See these spectacular creatures up close at Manta Bommie off North Stradbroke, staying at Manta Lodge in Point Lookout.

We will be doing at least four dives at Manta Bommie and Flat Rock. Two dives each on Saturday and Sunday mornings. You also have the option to do another two dives on Saturday afternoon as well.

Dates: Ferry from Cleveland on Friday afternoon 15 February, ferry back on Sunday 17 February.

Cost: $299 for accomodation and four dives incl tank & weights. Ferry and Food is extra. We will take a vehicle across to transport gear and split the cost of a BBQ on the Friday and Saturday nights .

Experience level: Open to all divers, Open Water and above.

This will be a combined event with Scuba Buddies Brisbane and Kirra Dive on the Tweed. Depending on how this event works, we may be doing other combined trips later this year to share resources and logistics.

Any questions? Call or email me.

      I've got a spare dive computer you can borrow, battery was a little low but think I've got some more for it if needed. I'll bring it along.

    Hi There!

    Just a quick note to touch base about our upcoming trip to North Stradbroke.
    We need to pay the operator to secure our spot, so I'll need to get a deposit or the full amount fairly soon.

    The cost is $299 altogether for diving and accommodation. We will also bring BBQ supplies as food on the island is quite expensive. Please let me know if you have any special dietary requirements.

    Is it OK to pay via Paypal? Otherwise bank transfer is another option if you prefer. Ferry is $20 per person return, we will also split the cost of taking 1 car across to carry gear.

    This is a jointly run trip with Kirra Dive, however I'm currently holding our spots open to Scuba Buddies Brisbane as a first option. If you are unable to attend, please let me know ASAP. Please let me know if you need any hire gear as well. Regards Hilton

    Hi all, I'm coming from the west side of city so was wondering if anyone was interested in car pooling to the ferry on Fri? I can leave work a bit earlier to meet everyone. Can also meet just south of city if anyone lives along the way to the ferry?

    Would it be too nasty to hope that my wife's friend's wedding is cancelled so I can come along this one?

    Aplogies to everyone who received an email with the loss of farmatting. I've attached a copy below for those who couldn't read it.

    I think we are in though I have a couple of questions, what is the accom, bunks? Dual share? My boyfriend and I would like to stay together and he is 6'4", can be hard to squeeze him into small places. Also any shore diving options for the saturday afternoon?

    December 19, 2012

    • Hilton

      Kelly, not too sure ab out shore diving options. There is another boat going out in the afternoon, will find out about shore diving soon.
      Also, I'm 6'3" so know what sleeping on a small bed is like, however we have got bunk accommodation for now. They have a tentative booking for double rooms and twin share at the moment. If that falls through I was planning to book those rooms!

      December 19, 2012

  • Kelly-Anne M.

    hmm, definite maybe for me +1, will RSVP soon if we are in
