We welcome you aboard the MV SeaEsta for 2 days and 2 nights of unmissable diving excursions on the Yongala Wreck - touted as the best dive site Australia has to offer! It is the largest reef structure in the region and is home to a plethora of marine wildlife.

The ship went down during a cyclone in 1911 and was first dived in 1958 and has remained largely untouched. The depth of the wreck ranges from 15 to 29 metres below the surface and is protected under the historic shipwreck act.

Filled with artefacts, corals and marine life you will have plenty of opportunities for sighting turtles, tropical fish, giant trevally, sharks, sea snakes rays and in the cooler months humpback whales - you will see why Red Bull has named it the best wreck for sea life.

In between dives enjoy relaxing on the large deck in our BBQ and entertainment area and sharing your experiences with crew and passengers.

This is the trip of a lifetime for scuba divers from Australia and around the globe.
