We have some great dive shore sites on our doorstep including Port Noarlunga, Rapid Bay and Second Valley jetties. We regularly boat dive on local reefs and wrecks, including Seacliff Reef, Glenelg Barge and Dredge, The Wolf & Lumb and Ex-HMAS Hobart. We also arrange weekends away – Edithburgh on York Peninsular and Whyalla are popular destinations. Further afield we have dived in Stradbroke Island and South West Rocks.
There is so much to see in South Australian waters from the beautiful leafy seadragon and seahorses, blue devils, rays, beautiful coloured soft corals. In June and July the giant cuttlefish congregate in Whyalla to mate – a wonderful sight and a unique experience to South Australia. Check out our Gallery for images of some great marine life that we regularly see on our dives.
