The rumors are true, Cody is truly a magician, just as much as I talk underwater! She must eat a lot of carrots based on the critters she finds. Warm energy on the boat in rough seas. Thanks Artur, Daniel & Dean too. by Matthew Thurn - 11-May-2024

I had a really good time. My best diving boat trip in Sydney. However, it would be nice to provide buckets to rinse the dive gear after the trip is done. But that's just a tiny remark on a fantastic day. by Alvaro Moran Gago - 27-Apr-2024

Great service and support from all staff. by Kevin Grubisa - 27-Apr-2024

Colours Reef

Depth:30m Rating:Black

Colours Reef is a wonderful example of Sydney's diverse coastline with lots of soft corals. The top of the reef starts at 22m then steps all the way down to a 30m sand line. The fish life here is a little different to other shallower sites around Sydney, with large Cuttlefish, Big Schools of King Fish, Eastern Blue Devil Fish and Seapike just to mention a few. As this is one of our deep sites you will need to have an Advanced Open Water Certificate and is often a site we use to teach our Deep Diver Workshop.
 

Colours Reef/Dee Why - Deep Dive

Depth:35m Rating:Black

Dee Why Wide

Depth:34m Rating:Black

Dee Why Wide is one of Sydneys premier boat dives. There is a prolific amount of marine life here. You can get down to depths as great as 37 metres in some spots due to the large gullies and cracks in the rocky bottom that are accessible to divers. As you explore the channels in the rock you will come upon kingfish, leatherjackets, yellowtail, and seapike, perch, bullseyes, cuttlefish, butterfly and black-banded perch, sergeant bakers, red rock cods,gropers and an abundance of eastern blue devilfish. This is an ideal dive site for Advanced or Deep Divers.

 

 

Long Reef/The Apartments - Shark Dive

Depth:25m Rating:Blue

Located North of Sydney Harbour. The main site at Long Reef is located along a large rock wall and drops to 15 to 20 metres. There is a huge rock formation that has a large swim-through running from east to west called The Cathedral. The cathedral one of the sites highlights is formed by two massive boulders leaning against each other and is covered in sea tulips, sponges and bryozoans. The Cathedrals ceiling is always abundant with sealife. Once you reach the western side it is home to masses of fish; bullseyes, roughies, yellowtail, pike and tailor. There are plenty of starfish, large cuttlefish, wobbegongs and Port Jackson sharks. We find visibility gets much clearer during winter so keep this site in mind for a mid winter dive. Swimming north of the cathedral and following the wall you come across large gutters, frequented by young grey nurse sharks. Note - Watch for strong currents.

Macquarie Light House - Seal Dive

Depth:8-24m Rating:Green

Located of South Head, Macquarie Light House offers a great dive and we often see a group of seals.

Magic Point - Shark Dive

Depth:23m Rating:Green

Magic Point is easily one of Sydney's most iconic dive sites. It is renowned for the large ledge/cave along a wall that starts at 7m and reaches 16m at its base that is home to some truly famous inhabitants, Sydney’s grey nurse sharks.

Historically, the cave has been home to in excess of 30 sharks at a time and has seen them congregrating even to this day. In 2013, Magic Point was designated a protected area from fishing to help the grey nurse shark numbers recover.

But sharks are not the only sea life to discover - divers can see wobbegong, Port Jackson sharks, cuttlefish, bull rays, yellowtail, weedy sea dragons and pineapple fish. In the right season, you might even catch sight of humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins.

Depth:23m Rating:Green
