Shore dive- Guided Double dive
EXPERIENCE TWO GUIDED SHORE DIVES
Sometimes a dive site has just too much to offer, for just one dive.
Today you can dive several times and still not see everything so, why not jump back in for another dive!
Our experienced dive guides know the sites well and can show you some of the awesome sites, the coast has to offer.

Other Dive sites we visit for a shore dive:
When you first enter the water and drop down to around six to eight metres, you will find the return marker made up of scuttled shopping trolleys and pushbikes.
Swansea Bridge has several spans each holding its own colony of marine life,- Decorator crabs, Pineapple fish, large blue eels, fan bellied leatherjackets, nudibranchs of so many different colours to name a few.
Night diving here is a great experience when the current is slack. Watch out for the small things, blennies poking out from the rocks, small eels, octopus and small cuttlefish sleeping in the algae fronds.
Check out all the animals that call the haven "home"- Big bull rays, Bat wing rays and sand Skate, along with schools of yellowtail waiting for you to swim around with them. A rock wall extends from the haven and you will even find a large anchor propped up against the wall. This area is also holiday home to several Grey Nurse sharks and a breeding area for small Port Jackson sharks.
So much to see in such a small area- Always something different, every time you dive here.
Cabbage Tree bay
Great little site, with a sandy and rubble strewn bottom, schools of yellowtail swim about you here at night. The Blue gropers are asleep in their holes and the schools of small ish are now out and about foraging.
Maximum depth here is 8 to 10 metres.
Terrigal haven Night Dive (Night certified)
Your first night dive should be at a place you have dived previously, where you feel comfortable and has easy access with good parking close to the water. Terrigal haven has all this and more.
Large bull rays swim around here at night. Look out the ever present Blue Gropers asleep in their rocky holes. The shiny Bullseyes are out swarming about and watch small sting rays glide over the sandy floor looking for tasty shells and molluscs coming out.
Special Note on all dives:
The dive guide has the final decision to dive on the day.
Please be aware weather or tidal conditions can and do change and dives may be cancelled.
You will be offered a refund or change of rain check.
