Bob Stanton has developed the Charity Drift into the major single event on the Newcastle diving calendar. We were pleased to commence our involvement in the event after just 3 months of business.
Grey Nurse Charters commenced commercial operations in December 2015. We believe that apart from doing what we enjoy; taking people diving to great destinations; that we should also put something back. This is just the beginning.
Some of us visited Fiji in July 2015 - diving with the bull sharks (and tiger shark) at Beqa. We had to do what we could to help our friends in their time of need. Raffle, charity dives thanks to those that helped.
In the News - Rescue at Moon Is
NBN Newcastle Evening News 26/03/2017 - man rescued by divers after boat sinks off Moon Island Swansea.
Click on the image above for the story. We were happy we were there at the right time and able to get the man to safety well before rescue authorities arrived. Despite the seas being relatively flat a solid 1.2 metre groundswell was hammering the front of Moon Island when the boat got into trouble.
Finding a Bomb in Sydney Harbour
What started as a Dive Anywhere Project dive on old wharves at Jones Bay Pyrmont took on a whole lot more significance when Tony found a live WWII British 3 inch mortar.

A Reflection on our Courses
Tony and Paul from the Dive Anywhere Project were featured in an ABC News website article:
After an item on NBN Newcastle News showing drone footage of a boat shaped shadow off Stockton Surf Club Doug, Michelle and Tony decided to investigate. We shot some footage and passed it on the NBN
It's always nice to get good feedback but instructors rarely get it from PADI. We always aim for the best courses possible.
