About Drive 'n' Dive Tours
Drive 'n' Dive Tours is a travel company dedicated to sharing our love of road tripping, our passion for scuba diving, and our respect for the ocean. Whether you're an experienced diver or keen to learn, we have a tour for you. Adults and children alike will love our itineraries which cover a great range of destinations and unique experiences.
As the pandemic of 2020 has made international travel unavailable, we wanted to find a way to help Australian-based divers discover their own backyard. Using our travel knowledge and diving expertise, we've formed relationships with some of the very best dive operators and suppliers in Queensland, to offer our customers a trip like no other.
Enjoy a range of underwater experiences including wreck and night dives, or a visit to an underwater museum. You can share sunrise with wild kangaroos, hand-feed wild dolphins, and watch as turtles lay their eggs. Our carefully chosen itineraries will allow us to show off our beautiful state, and offer you the trip of a lifetime!
