Getting There

Pro-Dive Central Coast operate a  govt. surveyed dive boat that speeds you out to the dive site in what many are describing as the best ‘day’ dive boat to the Adelaide – the purpose built “Snappy Tom” will show you what a comfortable and safe dive boat ride is really like. The vessel has  two full sized boarding ladder that makes it easy and also very safe when exiting to the water.

We run regular morning trips (weather permitting) and booked afternoon and night dives plus, with the ex HMAS Adelaide being so close to the boat ramp, she offers a great opportunity for advanced scuba diving courses, enriched air, wreck and photography courses are an option you can partake in, every day.

This dive site is an awesome adventure for both novice and technical divers. A visually impacting dive with a lot of the ships equipment and machinery left in place.

From very early on, the marine life has been attracted to this area with a Minke whale and Australian Fur Seal dropping in for a peek within weeks of the scuttling. Schools of juvenile tropical Heniochus, small Bream, Yellowtail Kingfish and tiny Mados have already claimed a spot and larger fish will follow in the coming years making this area a fantastic artificial reef.

The nearest boat ramp to the HMAS Adelaide is Terrigal haven.
