Driving (and diving) from Mackay to Brisbane?

07 October 2013 - 07:32 PM

I will be driving from Mackay to Brisbane, starting either Thursday night or Friday morning. I need to be in Brisbane by Saturday afternoon.

Naturally I would feel pretty silly being in the area without getting at least one dive in.

Considering my time constraints, any suggestions for maximizing my dive experience?
I'm thinking probably a boat from Mackay, Gladstone or Bundaburg would be the way to go, assuming there are some good sites not too far out.

Also, any recommendations for good shops/operators to call would be appreciated. Thanks!

As the topic states, I would appreciate thoughts on installing the Vivid Housings Leak Sentinel V3 with 5mm adapter on my Ikelite 6871.03 (Canon 5D mk III) housing:

I have sent an e-mail to the manufacturer, but I'm guessing Miso doesn't work over the weekend, so I thought I'd ask here as well as I'm anxious to try it out in the tub before I leave on Monday.

 

The recommendation I have seen is to replace the Depth-of-Field Preview control. However, the Ikelite 5D mk III housing does not have a control for DOF Preview:

Which control should I sacrifice instead, considering that I have the 5 mm adapter?

 

The Lens Release control is looking like a good candidate, would that be the best choice? (And more importantly, will it work?)

 

Thanks in advance!
