The HMAS Adelaide is the largest naval warship to be sunk off the NSW coast.
Being over 138.1 metres long and 15 metres wide, this is a huge vessel- purposely scuttled as a diver recreation area and artificial reef.
With our exclusive mooring, you are able to explore the HMAS Adelaide aboard one of our two purpose built dive vessels every day of the week. Weather permitting.
Dive sites ONLY minutes
from the boat ramp!
You can be assured of an enjoyable experience visiting our underwater playground.
PRO DIVE Central Coast have an exclusive licence to dive the HMAS Adelaide. Our licence is adjacent to the bridge on the port side. From here you can explore both forward and aft sections without backtracking or swimming too far.
The HMAS Adelaide is 138.1 metres long, 15.3 metres wide. Being such a large area we have identified over twenty five dives tours- You will always find something different to see on every dive and increase your diving ability at the same time.
The HMAS Adelaide is not our only dive site- we have over 429 dive sites on the NSW Central Coast which means you will never be crowded out with other dive boats or fishing boats detracting you from your pleasures. Some of our dive sites are even that exclusive- you require site owners permission before diving which we arrange for you!
We are regularly discovering even more dives sites with our monthly scheduled 'mystery dives' and regularly dive local reefs and wrecks. Many sites are weather dependent.
Before you head home- Fresh water showers and toilets are located across the Haven oval all year round for your comfort.
For boat dives meet at eastern main boat ramp adjacent to the big blue "Haven Seafoods Fish and chip" shop.
