Event information

This event is full.

*** The trip is now full - in case we do have any cancellation, please email me at to be added to the waiting list ***

We are chartering the whole Brisbane Scuba boat! Join us for a double dive at Manta Bommie/Point Lookout (mantas, leopard sharks, octopuses, rays, wobbegongs… so much marine life!)

  • Date: Friday 30 December 2022
  • Time: meet at 6:00am at Manly Boat Harbour (we should be back before 2:00pm)
  • Location: Leaving from Manly Boat Harbour (near the Royal Qld Yacht Squadron). If you are staying on North Stradbroke Island for the holidays, we can also pick you up from Amity Point Jetty (from Amity: be ready for pick up at 7:00am).

Diving: if conditions permit, we’ll hopefully do 2 dives at Manta Bommie, however Steve (our skipper) will make the final call on the selected dive site(s) based on the conditions on the day.

Cost:  $150

This cost excludes tanks. Each tank costs $10. If you need tanks, then add $20. Weights will be provided by Brisbane Scuba. They also have other pieces of equipment you can hire. If you need to hire equipment other than tanks/weights, please let me know at and I can provide prices.

Cost includes surface interval food (hot dog, biscuits) and soft drinks/beers (beers on the way back only!).

Secure your spot right now

Because we have chartered the whole boat to get a discounted price, we need to fill the boat with 12 divers asap.

What you need to do:

  1. Click RSVP yes (button on this page)
  2. Pay the full amount to URGQ ($150 if you don’t need tanks, or $170 if you do need tanks)

Refunds and cancellations

Unless Brisbane Scuba decides to cancel the trip (because of weather or external events), your payment is non-refundable. If you can’t make the trip for any reason, then we’ll try to find someone to take your spot. If we can’t find anyone, then we’ll need to keep your full payment (unfortunately). We can’t be flexible on this since we are chartering the whole boat so we need 12 divers or the trip won’t go. If you don’t show up on the day, you will not get a refund.

Let’s go diving!
