Diving the Yongala is a scuba divers dream. It’s a bucket list trip that no one should miss. The S.S. Yongala 2 Night Liveaboard Dive Tour stays exclusively at this wreck site. You will thoroughly explore this spectacular location.
During a cyclone in 1911, the S.S. Yongala sank off the coast of Townsville. All 122 souls on board were lost. It wasn’t until 1958 that this location was first dived and explored. Because of this and the remote location, it remains pristine and mostly untouched.
The wreck begins 15m below the surface and goes right down to 29m. This tour is best suited to advanced certified divers due to these depths. Some of the marine life frequently seen can be; Manta Rays, Eagle Rays, Turtles, Sea Snakes, Queensland Gropers, Giant Trevally. Thousands of colourful tropical fish. You might be lucky in the colder months and see Humpback Whales!
It is rated as one of the Top Ten Wreck Dives in the World. Don’t miss your chance to dive into the S.S. Yongala 2 Night Liveaboard Dive Tour.
