Scuba Dive Sites
Wall dives, drift dives, reef dives, coral gardens, big fish, sharks, rays, turtles, wrecks…. you name it, we’ve got it!
Listed below are a some of the Dive sites that we visit:
The Fish Market
As the name suggests, this site is home to thousands and thousands of colourful tropical reef fish. Huge schools of Soldier Fish, Squirrel Fish and Yellow Striped Snapper hover close to the reef, while Sharks, Rays, Tuna, Blue Fin Travelley, Turtles and other BIG critters are often spotted out in the blue.
A stunning wall covered with colourful hard and soft corals and home to an abundance of marine life both big and small. There is also a swim through which is home to Lion Fish, South Pacific Painted Crays and a Moray Eel.
This site consists of a single coral pinnacle rising out of 27m of water to within 10m of the surface. It’s swim through and overhangs are covered in a multitude of vibrant soft corals and the top of the reef is home to an Anemone and Clown Fish garden. A fantastic macro photography site! (Listed in “The World’s Top 100 Dives” Guidebook).
This stunning outer reef coral cay stands perched on the edge of a 1000 meters plunge into the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Diving here on the outer reef slopes is spectacular, offering prolific fish life with great visibility. There is always a good chance of seeing Manta Rays, Nurse Sharks, King Fish and other pelagics.
The Big W’s
Huge coral heads shaped like the letter ‘W’ located on the outside of the Barrier Reef on the edge of the abyss. The W’s provides big fish action. Rays, Sharks and large schools of Buffalo Parrot Fish are often seen.
A world famous shark encounter dive, The Supermarket is home to White Tip, Black Tip and Gray Reef Sharks as well as schools of Barracuda, Groupers and Red Bass Snappers. (Listed in “The World’s Top 100 Dives” Guidebook).
Sitting upright in 27 meters of water the Salamander is a 30m ex- Blue Lagoon cruise ship that has become home to a variety of fish life. Common resident are a Moray Eel, Lion Fish, Puffer Fish, Coral Trout and Coral Banded Shrimp. The wreck is easy to penetrate under the supervision of your dive guide.
PADI Specialty Courses
Hi Andrew, Just a quick email thanking you and your team for putting me through the open water dive certificate. I expected to come away with the curriculum completed and the ticket, but I think I got something extra from the experience I didn’t expect. You, Manny and Edwin not only showed me the skills of how to dive, but also the mental approach, that relaxed almost Zen state of moving through the water getting the most out of the experience. It’s not something you can read about, and it added an unexpected dimension to the diving. I’m back in my office in Sydney now, an hour and a half in the traffic getting in this morning, and over 250 emails to deal with, and I’m thinking about the drift dive on Wilkes Passage. The reef sharks and green turtle was a highlight, but the colour and variety of the fish and corals was amazing. Thanks again for a great experience. Cheers,
Andrew McKinna, Sydney Australia
