What to Expect When Scuba Diving on the Gold Coast?
While many people automatically think of the Great Barrier Reef for scuba diving in Queensland, the Gold Coast is more than able to hold its own. When it comes to offering up a unique experience that you will remember for many years to come. It is true that most scuba diving is found a short distance away from Surfers Paradise. But if you are looking for the best place to dive is the Scottish Prince Wreck Dive Gold Coast.
The biodiversity of the Gold Coast is amazing
So to say the least, the Gold Coast has more than 15,000 different species of fish. Ranging from little tiddlers right up to some of the largest sharks in the world. It’s easy to find yourself distracted in this magical watery world. There are also plenty of turtles, maori wrasse, manta ray, clown fish, jellyfish, and crustaceans going about their daily life. Of course, you could head to Sea World to see many of these. But there is nothing quite as captivating as seeing them in their natural habitat.
Beside the ocean life
The Gold Coast plays host to lots of mysterious shipwrecks. Always waiting to be explored, many of which hold a rich history.
The Scottish Prince Wreck Dive Gold Coast is 800 meters off the Gold Coast’s Southport Spit. It features the wreck of a three steel-masted, 64 meter iron barque ship. The Scottish Prince sank as it was sailing from Glasgow, Scotland to Brisbane. With a cargo of whiskey, mousetraps, linen and other assorted cargo, with only the hull of the ship remaining.
These days, the Scottish Prince Wreck Dive Gold Coast is covered in soft corals and sponges. Making it a haven for crayfish, shovelnose rays, brown-banded cat sharks and wobbegong sharks, and other tropical fish. There isn’t much access to the inside of the wreck. However a variety of marine life will pop their heads out to say hello. The Scottish Prince is protected under the
Commonwealth Historic Shipwreck Act. So make sure you take nothing but photos and memories.
