Pro Dive Magnetic Island: SS Yongala - Double Dive

Australia's No.1 Wreck Dive! Expect to be amazed by the huge schools of fish, giant groupers, eagle rays, turtles, sharks and beautiful soft and hard corals covering the ship. Located in the world heritage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is voted as one of the top 10 wreck dives in the ...

The No1 Wreck Dive in Australia!!

The Yongala sank during a cyclone in 1911, with 122 crew and passengers on board, it sat untouched until 1958 when divers began to explore the wreck.  It has since become a protected site under the Historical Shipwrecks Act (1976).  The wreck begins at 14m below the surface down to 28m at the sand line and at 100m in length there is plenty to explore!

Due to it’s remote location it has become a large artificial reef becoming home to a diverse range of marine life!  Expect to be amazed by the huge schools of fish, giant trevally, giant groupers, eagle and marble rays, turtles, maori wrasse, sharks, macro life and beautiful soft and hard corals covering the lengths of the ship!  During the winter months you can also expect to see and hear the humpback whales cruising by!!

Minimum Requirements to dive the Yongala:

  • Minimum age – 15 years
  • Open Water Certified – minimum of 15 dives (unless completing Advance Course with us)
  • Open Water Certified divers must be accompanied by a Dive Instructor at an additional charge of $25.  Advance divers will be guided by a Dive Master at no extra cost.
