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.

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

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.

Old Mans Hat

Depth:23m Rating:Green

A truly magical rocky reef dive accessible only by boat. Under the towering curve of Sydney Heads, the rocks jumble into the water and slowly give way to sponge gardens and a sandy kelp bottom. Old Mans Hat suits all levels of experience. The area is rocky with a few sandy patches. Sponges and soft coral can be found on the rocky bottom. Expect to see blue groper, cuttlefish, lizard fish, yellow tails, nudibranchs, pygmy leatherjackets, shrimps, ascidians, sponges, sea squirts and all sorts of other temperate marine life.

The Stack

Depth:30m Rating:Green

The Stack

A dive site located just off the headland at Dover Heights the stack is marked by the vent of the old sewerage treatment plant. The dive site is characterised by flat shelf like areas of volcanic rock formations stepping down to a maximum depth of 30m. The flat shelves consist of large areas of kelp beds where the cuttlefish love to hide and sand beds home to many port jackson sharks during the colder months.

Wedding Cake Is.

Depth:24m Rating:Green

About 1 km off of Coogee Beach is a collection of rocks about 150 metres long and 50 metres wide. At high tide one can see these rocks poking out of the sea and as the tide goes down they get more pronounced. This is Wedding Cake Island.

As you descend you will see the reef drop off in shelves at 5m, 8m, 15m, 18m, and the rock sand line is at approximately 22m. The main wall is at the 15m mark and this is where heaps of sea squirts and several small gorgonians make their home. Along the wall you can also find overhangs and caves that provide shelter to the aquatic life.

Wobbegongs can be found here along with lots of other fishlife including yellow-banded seaperch, old wife, snapper, bream, the esteemed blue groper, combfish, six-spined leatherjacket, rainbow runners, kingfish, and schools of luderick that flock to the shallower waters. If you're lucky you may get to see the magnificent eastern blue devil or cuttlefish. There are also many species of nudibranch.
