The wreck is a world class dive site, and attracts amazing amounts of fish life. You will get to make two dives on this amazing wreck, and be back ashore in time to have a barbecue back at the dive shop with your dive group.

An open water certification and 6 logged dives with deep dive training is the minimum requirement for this dive Divers that have not done any deep diving are required to take the PADI Deep Dive course on their first morning dive. The Yongala is an intermediate dive site and it is recommended that divers should be comfortable in conditions which can sometimes be challenging.

Novice divers (those with less than 20 dives) should ensure they have refreshed their skills within the last six months and will be provided with a dive guide (if adventure or advanced certified) or required to upgrade to the PADI ĎDeepí Adventure dive (if open water) to advance their skills to the required level and to ensure a safe and memorable experience.

The more experienced divers can choose to dive with a buddy or take a guided tour at no extra cost. © Yongala Dive
