Ben Bucker Head - Description Coming Soon



Blue

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

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

Fairy Bower


Fairy Bower gets its name from the miniature fairy penguins that can be found here. This shore dive lies just off of the ocean-side pathway running between Manly Beach and Shelley Beach. It is located about halfway between the two and swimmers and divers can get down to the water via a metal staircase. This is a great site for night dives when there is not much traffic on the pathway.

When you get into the water swim north away from the beach. There are some large rocks that you can swim between and there is also a swim-through, though you may need a guide to find it. As you swim north you will get down to approximately 8 metres of water maximum. There is a prominent reef that you can follow that extends out fairly far. In the western side of a reef is a large section of a storm pipe which baby wobbegongs and other fish like to hide in. There is also a gully between the rocks to the west that divers can swim through.

This is a good dive for seeing sharks. In March the dusky whaler sharks flock to this location. Some of PRO DIVE's guides have reported seeing almost twenty at a single time. Port Jacksons also can be found here in the winter. Aside from the sharks there are also blue gropers, schools of surgeonfish, yellowtail, leatherjackets, seapike, fiddler rays, sting and numb rays, and giant cuttlefish.

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.

Manly Bommie


Located off the northern end of Manly Beach, the top of Manly Bombie is in 10 meters and goes down to a maximum depth for 16 meters. There are swim-throughs and lots of fish including Schooling King Fish. There is lots of cool Macro stuff too, an ideal site for the avid underwater photographer. Snap away and enjoy a relaxing green rated dive.

North Avalon


Description coming soon



Blue

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.

 



Green

Red Flag Point


A red flag flies on top of a sheer cliff above a small bay. That flag is the namesake for this dive site. The bottom ranges from 14-24 meters where you anchor. There is a reef there that is home to a wide variety of fish species.  These include red morwong, yellowtail, seapike, and one-spot pullers. Schools of bream and snapper also frequent this area. Large rocks along the reef also provide an ideal location for the marine life to call home. There is an assortment of sponges to be seen here as well. If you poke around you can find several tunnels and caves underneath the rocks. Wobbegongs and Port Jackson sharks can be found hiding out in these areas depending on the time of year.

Shelly Beach


Enter from the shore along the right hand side of the beach (facing the sea). Keep the rock wall on your right as you head out and on your left as you head back - an easy dive site to navigate. As with any site, Shelley Beach is weather dependant - generally protected during easterly winds, which makes it diveable when a lot of other sites in the area are blown out. Viz can vary from 3 to 15M but is usually clearer during the winter months. On a good day, this is a spectacular site!

The best of the site is further out than most people get to and you do need reasonable air consumption to reach it. Swim out following the rock wall to your right, until it turns northwards and starts to peter out. Take a heading and keep going following the remnants of the rock wall on the sea floor and you should come to a kelp bed. Weedy seadragons are frequently found here and the depth should not exceed 12m.

Along the wall and amongst the big boulders, other marine life seen regularly is the divine eastern blue gropers (wrasse), schools of yellowtail and big eyes, mados and often pike. Red Morwongs, goatfish in the sandy area, flatheads and often ludericks and old wives. Under ledges shrimps galore and often juvenile lionfish. Port Jackson sharks and giant cuttlefish are common in season and wobbegongs sleep in crevices and under the big boulders.

The Apartments


The Apartments

Located on Sydney's northern beaches at longreef, the apartments is a spectacular dive site renowned for its schooling fish, swim throughs and celebrity appearances of grey nurse sharks. With a maximum depth of 24m, a minimum depth of 10m and the reef being approx 200m long, with the main wildlife being in 10m-18m making it an exciting dive for openwater divers as well as the experienced. Consisting of big boulders and rounded rock formations making excellent homes for cuttlefish and port jackson sharks. Although there can be a strong southerly current this usually dissipates after 10m.



Blue

The Blocks


The site is located at the mouth of the harbour north head and extends for about 700 metres. This location is renowned for great sponge growth below 12 metres and the shallower areas consist of big boulders and swim throughs. You will see lots of leather jackets, blue groupers, giant cuttlefish, and the occasional big bull ray plus your typical temperate water species. Visibility averages around 10 to 12 metres here and can be as good as 25 metres.



Green

The Gap


The gap is located off the Southern Headland of the Harbour and goes to a depth of 18 meters. Expect to see all the temperate Sydney marine life including grouper, rays, pelagic fish, turtles and, if you're lucky, a pod of dolphins just might come by and say hello. They have even been known to visit our shore divers at Camp Cove just around the point.



Green

The Stack


The Stack

A dive site located just off the headland at Dover Heights the stack is marked by the vent of the old sewerage treatment plant. The dive site is characterised by flat shelf like areas of volcanic rock formations stepping down to a maximum depth of 30m. The flat shelves consist of large areas of kelp beds where the cuttlefish love to hide and sand beds home to many port jackson sharks during the colder months.
 



Green

Wedding Cake Is.


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.
