Diving Lord Howe Island
The Dive Season is from September to May. When you dive Lord Howe you are diving the Crossroads of the South Pacific, where the Great Equatorial Current mixes with currents from New Caledonia, Coral Sea, New Zealand and the Tasman Sea. This results in a melting pot of tropical species and southern pelagics. A local census puts the number of fish species at 590 and different corals at 94. Lord Howe hosts the southern most coral reef in the world that fringes along its six-kilomter lagoon- Come and explore some of the 60 different dive sites around Lord Howe Island.
