The Lady Elliot Island Dive Shop is a PADI Resort Association member and has a comprehensive stock of hire equipment available. Scuba diving is conducted daily and qualified dive staff escort all dives. We schedule two dives per day with optional night dives available subject to numbers and weather conditions. Our PADI Dive Shop offers courses to cater to all levels of experience and a full range of scuba equipment is available for hire.

If this is your first time, you can try our ‘Discover Scuba Dive’. That way you will not miss a breath taking opportunity to experience the many riches that lie at the bottom of the Great Barrier Reef.
