Feature on Network Ten's The Living Room

Great episode last week on The Living Room with Chris Brown. We had a ball showing off the beautiful diving around Lord Howe Island and Balls Pyramid. 

Aaron also sent him through the 'Eye of Raoch' at the Admiralty Islands on one of our SUPs!! It was magical.

Our Favourite Dive Spot on Lord Howe

Pro Dive on Lord Howe Island has maintained its reputation as one of Australia’s premier diving operators since its inception in 1978. Diving is one of the best ways to explore our beautiful island. Come and see for yourself!

No matter what skill level or how much experience you have when it comes to diving, Pro Dive has a class for you. Beyond the introductory course, Pro Dive also offers certifications, open water courses, eLearning, a scuba review course, and an underwater photography workshop for those who wish to explore more.

Are you ready to dip your toes into diving, or jump in all the way? Either way, Pro Dive Lord Howe Island offers the perfect class set in a gorgeous location to make the most of it.

We were recently asked to contribute our favourite diving location for an article by Bupa Travel Insurance. Arguably the most sought after location to dive around Lord Howe Island is Balls Pyramid. This monolith is the world’s tallest sea stack and soars out of the South Pacific Ocean half a kilometre straight into the air. The diving around the Pyramid is as spectacular as the scene above the water with huge schools of Yellow Tail Kingfish and Amberjack, massive Marbled Rays, forests of Black Coral Trees and it is the only known place in the world where one can see the elusive Ballina Angelfish on recreational scuba.
