Australia east coast map

During the Australian summer months (October-April), manta rays gather at dive sites in the south-central East Coast. & Ocean will be hosting this special tour at this time of year.


1: Manta Island

North Stradbroke Island off the coast of Brisbane Many people have never heard of the name. This is the hotspot of this tour, where manta rays of 5 to 6 meters always swim under the boat. Also known as Manta Island. A regular in QUEENSLAND's best dive site rankings, you can observe various rare creatures other than manta rays. Also, camping on the beautiful island beach is just the best.

2: HMAS Brisbane

Battleship HMAS Brisbane sinking off the Sunshine Coast Here you can enjoy a full-fledged REC dive that you can't taste near Cairns. Unlike Yongara, where penetration is prohibited, he infiltrates the maze-like ship and moves through each room connected vertically, horizontally and diagonally. There are many fish that are not found near Cairns. The atmosphere of the city of Sunshine Coast, which is said to be the most beautiful in the world, is also wonderful.

3: Wolf Rock

A rocky mountain point off Rainbow Beach Wolf Rock There are about 20 Grainers sharks living here all the time, and you can get very close to them. This shark is a huge body with a body length of about 3.5 m, and the face with scary fangs protruding from the mouth is impressive. Rainbow Beach is far from the big city, but with beautiful beaches, well-equipped surf clubs, restaurants and barbecue facilities, your stay is comfortable.

4: Julian RockS

A famous point in Byron Bay. Although we couldn't dive due to the weather during this inspection, it is a point where manta rays, nurse sharks, leopard sharks, sea turtles, etc. gather together . I definitely want to revenge.

Needless to say, the city of Byron Bay, a popular tourist destination, has many nice cafes and shops, and it is fun to walk around the town.
