Queensland Scuba Diving Company in Gold Coast

Review of Queensland Scuba Diving Company

Queensland Scuba Diving Company

I have loved most of the scuba dives I have ever done so far in Australia. Some staff may not have been as friendly and good as others but generally, they are all fine. But there has been one scuba dive that I had done in the Gold Coast which I did not enjoy at all. This was during my initial days in Australia and I had booked a 4 hours introductory dive with this company. I had dived with Queensland Scuba Diving Company Pty Ltd. The briefing session and my instructor were fine but the whole diving experience was not pleasant. The dive was a shore dive and it had cost me AUD 92.75 per person, which included the equipment and the instructor.

My experience

I had expected it to have been like the other scuba dives I had done before in India and Malaysia. The maximum depth we were taken during this dive in Gold Coast was only around 4 to 5 metres. Yes, I did see some fishes but the place they had selected was very dirty and there was very little visibility. I do understand that the visibility depends on many factors and it is not controlled by the agency. But 4 to 5 metres depth is too less for a scuba dive costing so much, even for an introductory dive. May be the agency had decided to take us only to 4 to 5 metres because this was an introductory dive, I do not know. However PADI’s Discover Scuba dive says that the max depth is around 8 metres.

Closing Notes

I am not sure about their other scuba diving services, but the 4 hours introductory dive is something I do not recommend going with Queensland Scuba Diving Company Pty Ltd. unless you have absolutely no experience in scuba diving or swimming.
