Did couple of dives with these guys. Very friendly and pro team at the shop and on the boat. Good equipment available. On the dives the visibility was a bit disappointing, but still had a chance to see some interesting creatures.

Hi Guys, We are truely sorry that your visibility was not as good as it can be, the sea conditions are something we can't control, (we wish we could). You are correct about the creatures, you focus changes and you still see some great critters out at the Solitary Islands. If you come back, we hope you get some better... More

We went on a snorkeling trip this week and phoned at 630 am to heck whether the weather was good enough. We were told it would go ahead so arrived at 730 am and went out. The water at the dive/snorkel spot was rough and we saw nothing. The 2nd spot was not much better. For $150 per couple that... More

Hi Guys, We are sorry you experienced some poor visibility. We study the weather closely and that day had all the good ingredients for good conditions. Flat seas inshore, a slight southerly to bring in clean water in previous days and little wind. Unfortunately that was not the case and the only way we know how to see that is... More

Thank you for your review of our diving. We have always felt we have more shark encounters and action, and different fish-life than the Barrier Reef. It is great to hear it from our customers too! More

We went for a half day tour. We snorkelled around while the divers did their own dive tours. There were two stops around South Solitary Island and plenty of time in the water to paddle around. The visibility was great the day we went. We swam with a few turtles, saw lots of schools of fish, saw some big blue... More

Just been out on the afternoon whale watching experience with Jetty Dive. We are at the tail end of the whale watching season so I was not expecting much. Lindsay found us a large pod of dolphins and several whales but the last one we found put on the most magnificent display of breaching. Must have done 15 breaches and... More

We went out on a 2pm boat with Lindsay and Doug. It was fantastic. We had a mother and calf who did not stop showing off which was amazing! The two hours went too quickly. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Not to be missed!

Rang on the day to go out whale watching and as the weather had changed the company now had a boat going out. The small but fast rubber boat that takes up to 20 people whale watching is great, everyone gets a good view and you are down low on the water to get up close and personal if u... More

Fantastic whale watching followed by spectacular diving at South Solitary islands. We had great views of the migrating humpback whales on two trips out from Coffs Harbour. The diving at South Solitary, for cold water diving I was blown away...300+ cownose rays all swimming midwater, stalked by hammerhead sharks, grey nurse sharks, wobbegongs and lots of great marine life.

Did my advanced open water with Jetty Dive. The staff are really professional, gear is well maintained, dive boat is custom built and south solitary islands has an array of quality sites. Manta Arch is a must dive!
