Thanks for such a great review. The shore diving in Sydney is excellent with so many great dive locations easily accessible and containing a large range of marine creatures. One of the great attractions of diving around Sydney is its abundant marine life. A recent study revealed that Sydney has more marine species than any other harbour in the world.... More

I joined a free guided shore dive and the organisation was excellent! Very friendly team, who cares about divers well-being and safety, who is well organised and enthusiastic. The trip included two dives from the shore and a lunch.

We did a shark dive at magic point. Unfortunately there were no nurse sharks around. Just the little crested thawn sharks. But that is no ones fault. During the dive, we felt a bit left alone because there was only one diving instructor for 10 people. He couldn 't be able to have a look after everyone, at one time... More

Thanks for your comments. I am sorry you missed out on seeing the grey nurse but from most reports it was still a great dive. It was also good to hear that you found the boat driver and the dive instructor were both really friendly and helpful. The grey nurse sharks are wild creatures and do move around the area... More

On Saturday I joined in with a boat dive with Abyss. It was an overall fantastic experience with awesome conditions & great, friendly service. To cap the dive off we were visited by 2 whales just after we climbed aboard the boat before our to return to shore. It was a lot of fun & highly recommended.

Thanks for the great review on our boat dives. This time of the year is certainly a good time of the year to go boat diving. In the main, flat seas, good visibility, and certainly the whales are the icing on the cake. I hope to see you doing another dive again, very soon. Thanks again for the review. Peter... More
