General Information

A short 30-minute ferry ride across the world’s most spectacular harbour, Manly is a great place to start your Northern Beaches experience. It is a must-visit Sydney destination offering waterfront restaurants, attractions, adventure and entertainment.

 

Pro Dive Manly is located in the neighbouring suburb of Brookvale. Accessible by a short 20 minute bus or 10 minute car ride from Manly Wharf. We have plenty of off street parking available and can provide transport on most of our courses, including our Learn to Dive program.

 

The Northern Beaches offer us some spectacular dive sites, with the iconic Shelley Beach, Fairy Bower and Freshwater Beach being the most popular sites, which we dive frequently.

 

Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve (accessible via Fairy Bower and Shelley Beach) with more than 160 species of fish and seven types of habitat: rocky shores, sandy beaches, rocky reefs, seagrass beds, kelp, sandy seabed and open water. 

 

The fish range from common temperate species through to tropical species that move south on the East Australian Current (EAC). Many species use the reserve, including pelagic species, such as dusky whaler sharks, and sedentary species that rarely leave the reserve. Iconic species such as blue groper, giant cuttlefish and wobbegong sharks inhabit the area and protected species such as seadragons, elegant wrasse and black rockcod also venture here. Join us and explore Manly underwater!
