1770 and Agnes Water are the jumping off point for many diving adventures at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. The Capricorn section is widely hailed in diving circles as one of the best on the reef and underwater visibility is rarely less than twenty meters. There are several dive operators taking trips from 1770.
There is a day trip that takes tourists to the reef that, weather permitting, runs every day. It departs from the 1770 marina. This tour caters for thousands of tourists each year who wish to dive and snorkel at lady Musgrave Island. This island is a true coral atoll and sits on the reef top at the western end of a large and spectacular lagoon. The tour company have a permanent pontoon moored in the lagoon from which its diving operations are managed. Other dive companies also run to Lady Musgrave Island and it is possible to join an extended live aboard tour. If you are not a certified diver, introductory dives are available and courses to become certified can also be undertaken. Qualified dive instructors and dive masters are always present on these tours.
If you are a certified diver or you wish to learn, then Bundaberg or 1770 is a great destination for you.
