Local diving instructors with a passion for all things underwater will be joining forces to provide visitors and residents alike with an amazing diving experience right at the region's doorstep.

The team at Come Dive With Us and Turtle Town Scuba Bargara have decided to collaborate, providing a one-stop-shop for ocean adventures in the Bundaberg Region.

Steve Clarke from Come Dive With Us said he and the team had been diving the Woongarra Coast and bunker group islands for six years.

“We are really passionate about our reefs and ocean marine life and love sharing our knowledge and passion for scuba diving in a safe environment,” he said.

“Safe diving practices for divers and the reef marine life is a focus for us each time we enter the water and we always adhere to strict standards while scuba diving/snorkelling.”

Moving forward, Steve said Come Dive with Us would join forces with Turtle Town Scuba Bargara, bringing experience and a fresh outlook on scuba diving in Bundaberg.

“Gordon Evans is an independent PADI instructor and we really look forward to working with the team,” Steve said.

“Turtle Town Scuba is passionate about scuba diving and offers recreational scuba diving
courses from beginner to advanced as well as local, interstate and international diving trips.”
