2012 Dive Festival for Heron Island

The second annual Heron Island Dive Festival, will take place from July  25-29. The action packed event will appeal to divers from all over the world who recognise Heron Island’s status as a “must dive” location.

Visitors will enjoy two dives a day, along with the option of night dives - ensuring they really get to know the myriad dive sites with their fantastic coral gardens and bommies, and extensive marine life on this southern part of the Great Barrier Reef

Additionally there will be a series of inspirational lectures and workshops to provide guests with more information about their environment

For diving novices, Discover Scuba dive classes will take place every morning at the Heron Island swimming pool and in the harbour, essentially for people who are not PADI-certified divers, but would like to take the first steps.

There will also be a series of afternoon wine tastings, cooking master classes plus a range of taster treatments at the Heron Island Aqua Soul Spa – ideal for those accompanying divers to the event.

The Heron Island Dive Festival is priced from AUD 1256 per person, which includes four nights’ accommodation, two dives daily (per diver booked), all meals, return launch transfers from Gladstone, and tanks and weights
