DiveCareDare

Tony Isaacson - Diving Naturalist. As a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, AWARE shark conservation specialist and adventurer, I have dived in some of the most amazing diving locations on the planet. I have been scuba diving since 1970 and have logged over 3000 dives in more than 20 countries around the world. I’ve documented the marine diversity in exotic locations like Komodo, Fiji, Vanuatu, PNG, Tahiti and the Galapagos Islands. In 2013, I inspired Navy Clearance Diver and bull shark bite survivor, Paul de Gelder and a 60 Minutes film crew to dive with bull sharks at the Ultimate Shark Encounter in Fiji. I was a consultant on the making of documentaries on Leafy Seadragons (for Channel 9), The Great Barrier Reef (with Richard Fitzpatrick for the BBC) and filmed underwater footage in Indonesia and off the Queensland and New South Wales coasts for TRAVELTHERENEXT TV. In July 2014, I headed to South Africa for the Sardine Run and dived with the great white sharks from Durban to Cape Town, South Africa. I’m a great advocate for sharks, sustainability and ecotourism, and I regularly volunteer for Reef Check and Grey Nurse Shark Watch in Australia.

DIVE HOSTING

Diving Videos

 

I have been scuba diving since the early 1970’s.

It is my all consuming passion and I love to share my experiences with anyone willing to do so.

I love scuba dive hosting and it can take many forms.

 

LOCAL SHORE DIVES

Local shore dives area easy, cheap and convenient. They can include dives from Caloundra, Kings Beach, Currimundi, Point Cartwright, Point Arkwright and Coolum Beach, SE QLD. Transport is provided, and tank fills or gear hire can be arranged as required.

 

LOCAL BOAT CHARTERS

I can also book boat charters for any number of divers through Sunreef Scuba Diving Services in Mooloolaba, with access to most of the Sunreef diving charters, including the ex-HMAS Brisbane, sunk off the coast of Mooloolaba in 2005.   However with groups of 4 or more I can be your exclusive dive guide, marine naturalist and videographer, at no extra cost.

 

DAY TRIPPER DIVING

Advance Open Water divers, as individuals or more preferably in groups of 2 or more, can book for an amazing Grey Nurse Shark diving experience at Wolf Rock, Rainbow Beach, near Fraser Island on the SE coast of QLD. We leave at 05.30am for the day trip, and transport from Kawana is provided. Local pick up may also be possible by negotiation.

 

WEEKEND OR EXTENDED DAYS DIVING

DiveCareDare has a fully equipped 2+2 camper van and can take 4 divers comfortably, providing a capacity to access excellent dive locations out of the Gold Coast, QLD or Tweed Heads, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and South West Rocks, NSW (Fish Rock Cave dive site).

 

ACCOMMODATION ON THE SUNSHINE COAST, QUEENSLAND

Should you also require accommodation for your diving trips then I also run a diving ‘lodge’ or short holiday stay airbnb fully contained studio apartment at 106 Sunbird Chase, Parrearra on the Sunshine Coast.  It can accommodate 2 adults in the one queen’s sized bedroom, but can also sleep another 2 adults in a fold out leather sofa bed in the living area, as well as a further single roll out bed. It has its own kitchenette and is luxury style but at a budget price.

Larger groups may also be able to be accommodated by negotiation. Nothing is too hard or difficult for us to cope with. Where there is will, I will always find a way to make your diving experience with us one to remember.
