My partner and I dived the ex HMAS Brisbane with Scuba World. They are a fantastic dive shop, very professional, safety conscious and a great bunch of people. Their dive boat is excellent (rigid inflatable which comfortably seats 20, toliet on board and all necessary emergency equipment) They really look after their divers from beginning to end inc. snacks & refreshments during the surface interval (the anzac biscuits were yum!). If you are inclined to get seasick, they also will come back into the bay during the surface interval if conditions are a bit choppy. Other operators in the area will not do this. The wreck is at a good depth (28m to the sand) so you get more bottom time. We will be definitely diving with these guys again when we are back up in Mooloolaba.

I was drawn to Scuba World through a work colleage and was very impressed with both the staff and facilities also loved the friendly atmosphere both at the shop and aboard the dive boat the easeof walking down the jetty with the gear and onto the boat was so simple and easy. I am now in the process of deciding which course to do with them next.

From Wayne Buchholz

Very professional… I was out of practise as I hadn’t done an open ocean dive for some years but I felt well catered for and supported and had a successful and enjoyable dive. Will definitely be back in a few weeks for another experience on the BRISBANE. I really appreciated the boat trip back to calm waters between the first and second dive for the break with hot soup and light snacks as it was rather windy on the day and the risk of sea-sickness was definitely averted for me as a result of that approach. Made for a much more enjoyable day. Great experience on the wreck and the sea-life is brilliant… The depth is just right… Safe….Not too deep but deep enough to be an exciting and adventurous dive. Looking forward to the next dive.

From Peter Mulready

Great facilities, crew, instructors, food, boat, weather and WRECK! …what more could one ask for? Well done Scuba World crew, I’ll be back with others next time around.

From Mathew Simpson

Having not dived for a few years I took a refresher course followed by the dives to ex HMAS Brisbane. From start to finish everyone involved was professional, friendly, supportive (and patient!!). The only decision i have to make now is when to go again – it WON’T be long! Thanks guys for making a good experience a great one

From Mike Arnold


I found the training to be excellent. This made me feel as though I could handle the ocean dives, as I was worried about my ears. However, my wears were fine and the instructor was awesome!

From Rebecca-Ann Jones

Loved meeting different people. The crew at Scuba World are so good and they are highly qualified. They know exactly what they are talking about. I felt really safe at all times.

From Chelsea Woof

The patience and¬†friendliness¬†of the instructor was great! There is nothing I could change about this course it’s perfect.

From Nick Wong

Instruction was catered for individual skills and capability. Pool time sufficiently prepared students for time in the ocean. No pressure to get things right straight away which made everyone feel comfortable in the water.

From Melissa Garstang

Friendly staff, quality rental equipment and the very close proximity to dive sites. Also the age of the dive boat is great and very tidy.
