Welcome

We’re so glad you’re here. 

No doubt, just waiting out the time til you next get in the ocean (either that, or you’re our mothers checking up on us, in which case ‘Hi!’).

Our travels

Everything on Surface Intervals is from our dive experiences, at the age and experience of the time. So don’t expect hard facts, or take for granted that if we say one place is the best dive spot in the world, it in fact, is. 

We may just have been having good day.

For a long weekend getaway, you really don’t want to be travelling more than 2-3 hours. So from Sydney, Nelson Bay is right in the right spot if diving is on your list of activities. If you hit a good run with traffic (which we did), it’s about 2 1/2 hours north of Sydney – and has the bonus of being slightly warmer than heading south.

North Stradbroke Island, Australia – July 2014

North Stradbroke Island, Australia – July 2014

Just 3 days for a dive trip, for a second I contemplated if it was worth lugging my dive gear and the camera equipment all the way to North Stradbroke Island. Pffft, of course it was! Any opportunity to get in the water, especially with the added draw card of Whale...
