Come and see why Townsville's SS Yongala wreck dive is rated amongst the worlds best.

Adrenalin Snorkel and Dive is Townsville's longest established dive training and marine tourism operator specialising in providing snorkelling and diving trips as well as training of divers as part of a full dive service.

The S.S. Yongala Wreck is rated among the Top 10 Wreck Dives in the world! The Wreck is situated in the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and is protected under the Historic Shipwreck Act (1976). The artefacts, marine life and variety of corals that cover the wreck are simply spectacular and never disappoint even the most experienced divers.

The 110m long wreck begins 15m below the surface and extends to 29m. Since it is the only large reef structure in the region, the marine life gathers at the wreck creating Australia's BEST dive site.

Yongala- Amazing!

Our dive trip to the Yongala with Adrenalin was excellent. The staff were friendly, knowledgable, professional, and they all worked to ensure that everyone was well and having a good time. While the ride is long, the boat is comfortable and the views enjoyable. The meal between dives was good and sufficient to reenergize. Plenty of ice water, tea, coffee and fruit available as well. Equipment for hire was good as well. The dives themselves on the wreck were fantastic. The diversity of marine life was outstanding and some of the best we've seen from various sites around the world! This trip is highly recommended!

Amazing experience all round!

This was one of the best deals I’ve gotten on bookme.com! The dive was phenomenal, one of the best I’ve done for marine life for sure. We saw whales, turtles, bull shark and sooo many different fish species. Also, the crew were awesome, very chilled out, knowledgeable and accommodating. Can’t recommend this trip highly enough!

Beat dive so far

This is the best dive I have been on so far. We seen a guitar shark, massive rays, turtles, giant trevally, a bunch of sea snakes and loads of corals growing all over the wreck. The wreck itself is impressive and houses loads of marine life. The guys on board were really sound, they gave us really good briefings about the wreck and it’s history etc and a lot of food! Cheers for the mega dive 👍
