About the Event

In celebration of International Men’s Day, we’re hosting a special event for our diving boys to kick it and enjoy an epic day!

What you can expect

Our morning will start off in the best way – with a dive on the Ex-HMAS Brisbane.

The afternoon will consist of a whisky tasting and two-course meal at The Dock Mooloolaba. Enjoy this accompanied by the cruisey vibes at The Dock. Choose your lunch from one of the following from the starter and main choices. 

Starters: Jalapeno poppers, pulled pork tacos, or black bean tacos (VG). Mains: Beef brisket, pulled pork shoulder, or zucchini fritters (VG). 

Check in at Sunreef starts at the time outlined on your confirmation email or text. When you arrive, we will see you at our check in desk and ensure that your gear is organized. If you bring your own gear, our crew can carry it down to the dock and set it up for you, or if you prefer you will be free to do it yourself. If we know you are hiring gear, everything will be organized for you prior to check in. 

On departure to the Ex-HMAS Brisbane, our trained crew will provide a thorough briefing for all our divers about the Ex-HMAS Brisbane site and will answer any questions you may have about it. Once the boat exits the calm waters of the Mooloolaba River system, it is around a 15 minute ride to the site. The vessel will be moored and our crew will help you set up to get in the water. 

Your dive is planned to last for either 50 minutes or will end to have you on the surface with 50 bar (whichever one comes first).

The divers then return to the shop, where we will unload the vessel and wash all your gear for you if you so wish.
