Blue Fish Point


Located on the northern side of the North Head Peninsula this is a great site to see Weedy Sea Dragons, Cuttlefish and Wobbegong Sharks. Port Jackson Sharks are a common sight in winter. Blue Fish Point is considered a relaxing dive and is often where we hold our Search & Recovery Workshops. Dive Rating Green - Max Depth 24M



Green

Blue Fish Wall


Blue Fish Wall is the outer section of Blue Fish Reef. The wall reaches down to approximately 25 metres. It has many large boulders, overhangs, swim-throughs and drop offs that make this an exhilarating dive with lots to see and do. All along the wall you can see sponges, ascidians, sea squirts, nudibranch and all sorts of other sea life. The fish that frequent this site are cuttlefish, mullet, wrasse, leatherjackets, sea perch, bullseyes and goatfish.
 



Green

Cascade


Located at the mouth of the harbour north head ?
Averages between 6 meters down to 30 meters. This location is renown for great sponge growth below 12 meters and in the shallower areas big boulders and swim throughs. You will see lots of leather jacket, blue grouper, giant cuttle fish, and the occasional big bull ray plus your typical temperate water species and viz averages around 10 to 12 meters here and can be as good as 25 meters.


Green

Colours Reef


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.
 



Black

Dee Why Wide


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.

 

 



Black

Diamond Bay


Diamond Bay is a relatively easy dive that begins at a depth of about 16 metres and reaches down to 22 metres. It consists of a reef that descends in shelves that boulders rest on. Around and under these boulders is a sizeable collections of sedentary fish life. You can expect to see cuttlefish, moray eels, hawkfish, shrimp, nudibranchs, rays, and wobbegongs.

Green

Exploratory Dive


Often Sea Life V and the Pro Dive team like to explore sites they think will make magical dive sites. It is always exciting, as you are never quite sure what will be found. But then, dives should always be a discovery!


Flagstaff


Flagstaff is an excellent shallow dive, starting around 5 metres and descending to 12 metres. Sandy bottom with rocks and boulders up to the shoreline. As you dive north you can see kelp, ascidians, sponges and all sorts of sea life around the rocks. Octopus, port jackson sharks, rays, cuttlefish, schools of fish and nudibranchs can be found at this site. If you are really lucky, a fairy penguin might swim past you underwater as the colony is close by. Pro Dive utilise this site for our enriched air workshops.



Green

Long Reef


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.

Magic Point


Magic Point is known for it aggregation of Grey Nurse Sharks and is one our most popular Boat Dives. Despite their fierce appearance, Grey Nurse sharks are not considered to be dangerous to humans. The sharks can usually be found in a cave about 15 metres below the surface.  They are very tolerant of divers, expect to see 8-10 sharks, but you should not reach out and touch or poke any of these animals. By staying still and calm, you will often be rewarded with sharks cruising right over your head or very close by or at your feet on the silty bottom cruising their patch. The sharks are accompanied by enormous schools of yellowtail as well as remoras and is a great site to complete a Shark Diver Workshop, one of the most exciting workshops you can imagine.

North Head Wall


Located right on the outside point of North Head is a dramatic wall that drops about 13-18 meters. Considered a breeding ground for the Blue Groper, it not uncommon to see juvenile Blue Groper in abundance. Wobbegong and Port Jackson Sharks are regulars in winter, with Black Stingrays an occasional visitor to this site. A good schooling area when the pelagic are running, including King Fish, Yellowtail Scad and Australian Salmon. North Head Wall is considered and easy dive but conditions do need to be calm, making it a great winter dive as we usually have prevailing westerly winds.

Old Mans Hat


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.

Royal Shepherd


Located off South Head it is a relative easy site to access. The Shepherd can be found at a depth of 27M, so you are required to be an Advanced Open Water Certified diver to visit this site. The site consists of parts of the  Royal Shepherd, rather than the entire ship itself.  All that remain are the engine block, driveshaft, prop and boiler. There is sporadic fish life around the wreck and it is home to some Moray eels.

Wedding Cake Island


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.
