Welcome and Hello


Wolf Rock Dive is a PADI 5 star dive centre situated in the picturesque beachside town of Rainbow Beach, Queensland. We are a 2.5-hour drive North from Brisbane and a 2-hour drive south from Hervey Bay.

Located 2km off Double Island Point, Wolf Rock was classified as a marine sanctuary in 2003 when it was observed to be the only known gestation site for the critically endangered Grey Nurse Shark on the East Coast of Australia.

Since then the site has gone from strength to strength and is now regarded as

“Australia’s Best Shark and Ray Dive”


Swimming with large Sharks and Rays is something that happens on every dive at Wolf Rock, the consistency of these sightings is so reliable that we are able to partake in and offer a number of research and citizen science projects.

Wolf Rock really is the land of the giants; Grey Nurse Sharks are found throughout the year with other frequent visitors to the Rock including Manta Rays, Leopard Sharks, Eagle Rays, Blotched Fan Tail Rays, Sea Turtles, Olive Sea Snakes, Giant Queensland Grouper and in the winter, the Humpback Whale!

 Due to the close proximity of the Great Barrier Reef, you can expect to see a vast array of Tropical and Subtropical reef fish alongside all the other Pelagics! If you feel like swapping your wide angle for a macro lens you will not be disappointed. Wolf Rock is covered with Nudibranchs, Pipe Fish, Frogfish, Eels, Octopus, Sea Apples and much much more!

Come and join us for a once in a lifetime dive experience!
