Guided Shore Dive

Arguably the BEST SHORE DIVES in New South Wales!
We also offer Snorkel Tours on our shore dives

Dives are made on the High Tide.  As this varies each day, if the start time is set at 8.00am please check with us for updated information.  On some days the tides will be either too early  or too late for safe diving.

About our Shore Dives
The Halifax / Fly Point  Marine reserve offers extensive fish life including, to name just a few, schools of bream, tarwine, mullet, big silver drummer, bullseyes, pineapple fish, giant flathead, blue grouper, wobbegong and Port Jackson Sharks, bait fish and even visiting striped butterfish. Strong tidal currents within Port Stephens have created unique and accessible dive sites for both the beginner and the more experienced diver. For the lover of macro diving the range of invertebrates is the highlights with a great array of nudibranchs can always be located and photographed including seahorse, crabs and southern crayfish.
