Office is useless. Booked the tour through a broker. Called the morning before the Yongla Dive. They didn’t return several calls from myself and the broker until 4pm to tell me that the dive boat was full and the booking system used by the booking agency was inaccurate. They have indicated that this has been so for years, but they’ve never done anything about it. Office was only open 2-4pm during one of the busiest seasons of the year. By the time I got the call, I had booked a hotel and a car to specifically go to Townsville. Cost me money and a valuable dive day. At a minimum, they should work with the booking system to make sure it is either up to date or they don’t include them in the system. And how is it that they are only open for 2 hours on Dec 27th??
Over Easter we dived the Yongala on a day trip from Alva Beach with a different dive operator, paying $250 for 2 dives per person (with our own gear) We enjoyed our dive and decided we would return again, after much research, we opted to go with Adrenaline, we have always wanted to do a liveaboard and are SO glad we finally did! ADRENALINE- completely over delivered on our expectations! To say it was an incredible experience is an understatement.. * 3 day/ 3 night on a liveaboard including accomodation, 10 dives ( 2 of which were night dives) 6 meals a day = $1000 per person - very good value! * diving incredible, untouched and unspoilt reefs * morning dive on the yongala - best experience, prime feeding time 👌 * fantastic operators, Paul (captain and owner) Over 30 years in the business, knowledge of area and dive sights is amazing! * Wonderful staff - Lazlo and Perry are fantastic dive masters, instructors - assisting you out of water where required, leading dives, pointing out marine life, knowing where to find them and a thorough emphasis on safety and diving briefs. Kym is an excellent cook with great taste in music! continental and cooked breakfasts, chicken and salads, green curry and spaghetti bolognaise, apple pie and ice cream were some of the meals, enjoyed by all.. We can’t wait to return and dive with adrenaline again! A must do experience with pinch me moments, highly recommend!
I had not been diving for a few years so booking a 3-day trip including a wreck was bot exhilarating and scary. Needless to say, Adrenalin Dive hit the mark on all account: professionalism, safety, food, knowledge of the reef, individual care. Despite what I would consider a relatively rough sea, Paul, Lazlo, Perry, and Kim were fantastic at all times of the trip. From boarding, to dive briefs, material outfitting, underwater guidance, biology of the species encountered, meals, everything was very organized and on-time for a group of 16 divers. Yes, the reef is far from Townsville but the experience I had was certainly better than on some of the 100s-pagenger boats leaving from more popular locations. And while I didn't not dive 10 times, the opportunity was there making each dive under $100 not counting the live-aboard amenisties and experience. So all in all, if you have only a few days, this is by far the best and cheapest way to dive both the reef and the Yongala. david
Awesome daytrip to the S.S Yongala wreck. We highly recommend going with Adrenaline Snorkel and Dive if you want to discover this world class dive site. Though the sea was a bit choppy and there were medium current at the dive site we enjoyed every moment thanks to a very professional crew that offered five stars service during the day. Thanks again for this great day!
Extremely professional crew who looked after me as a rusty scuba diver. Yongala was breathtaking, and though we didn't see any rays or sharks, visibility was excellent. Adrenalin's equipment was top-notch. The team went beyond the call of duty and when I forgot my wetsuit on board, they dropped it to the ferry terminal.
My friend and I were overjoyed by our adventure to SS Yongala wreck located in the Great Barrier Lagoon just over two hours by boat from Townsville, Australia in Northeast Queensland. Bright and early, the ship's crew (CAPT Mike, Gunston, Lazlo, and Ariela) were ready and waiting to take us to the SS Yongala Wreck from Townsville. The boat (Adrenaline), equipment, and crew were set and ready to welcome divers and adventurers aboard. We left promptly and returned promptly. The crew were highly experienced, safety conscious, professional, friendly, and helpful. We had two of the safest dives we have ever attended. We enjoyed the snacks, a great lunch, and the beautiful weather on the water. Bring a camera for great pictures or rent one on board. Be prepared to see breaching whales along the way and perhaps a few curious dolphins. It was a relatively calm day, but a few folks forgot to take medicine for seasickness. The crew were helpful and professional to minimize their discomfort. During lunch, we received a great briefing about the SS Yongala wreck. The history is fascinating, and Gunston helped us to appreciate our ability to see a bit of Australia's history. Both Lazlo and Gunston are incredible guides for the underwater experience. Their leadership and experience makes your underwater experience feel safer and more enjoyable. Ariela is always there to assist during buddy checks and to safely help you leave and return to the boat after each dive. I look forward to another dive with Adrenaline Snorkel Dive very soon.
I was recently PADI certified for open water scuba diving by some of the best instructors I've ever encountered at Adrenaline Snorkel Dive. After Completing the required online eCourse for the open water certification, I worked with Wayne and Lazlo at Adrenaline Snorkel Dive for both the pool skills demonstration part of the course and the open water skills tests. Their expertise and amazing instruction gave me the confidence to demonstrate the requisite skills to become an open water certified diver. Through their instruction and encouragement, my confidence grew during each dive. After being certified, I continued to work with the Adrenaline Snorkel Dive crew to apply my newly acquired skills. They offer guided tours to Keeper Reef and Lodestone Reef and the SS Yongala wreck. I highly recommend them as instructors and guides. The crew are professional, friendly, and wonderful to spend the day with on the Great Barrier Reef or the Great Barrier Lagoon. Ariela and Gunston were always available to lend a helping hand and to provide a safe scuba or snorkel experience for all aboard. CAPT Mike was a pleasure and guided us safely to and from Townsville, Australia to some of the best spots to see the Great Barrier Reef. I can't wait to book another scuba diving adventure with them.
The life on the wreck is worth the effort to get there! (0700 start 1715 finish.) One of the best wrecks I have dived including the Thistlegorm in Egypt. Adrenaline staff were friendly but not overbearing. Boat was comfortable and spacious for a day boat. Food and drinks were provided regularly. Only minor issue was some cylinders were low on pressure but we swapped them out and got 200bar.
