Discover the captivating beauty, vibrant marine life and breathtaking landscapes of the Southern Great Barrier Reef with us.

Our state of the art facility

Our custom-built facility, isn’t just a dive centre, it is an experience. Our state-of-the-art facility was meticulously designed with the local environment in mind.

  • We’ve chosen materials that not only withstand the coastal climate but also help manage heat in the centre.
  • Our design maximised the local aspects of the Agnes Water area, to integrate the facility into the local town. 
  • The artwork on display at the front of our property is inspired by an image of our founder and created by local artist Stylz Art. The artwork depicts a freediver surrounded by the vibrant marine life that calls the waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef home. This is a tribute to the beautiful backyard we call our home. 
  • We’ve selected native plants, each one chosen for its ability to thrive in the Central Queensland climate. 
  • Dive Spear and Sport @ 1770 is proud to be solar powered. Our rooftop solar panels make the most of the 300 sunny days a year experienced in the Town of 1770.
