jervis bay is located 200kms south of sydney, nsw, australia

huskisson, the hub of jervis bay, is a small township on the edge
of the bay and the gateway to most diving, snorkelling and water-based
jervis bay offers some of the most diversified scuba diving along
the australian east coast, now a marine park; it is regarded by
many as the southern alternative to the great barrier reef.
the surrounding waters and parkland of jervis bay are all part
of the jervis bay marine and booderee national parks' and are
home to a wide diversity of temperate water marine life (with
a few visiting tropical species every now and again!).
if you have any queries please find our contact details through

we have over 30 dive sites both inside and outside
the bay, which can be visited at different times of the year.
due to the unique geography of the bay, diving is possible all
year round, even when conditions aren't always the best.
there is always
protected to dive
jervis bay has something for every diver � reefs, drop-offs,
caves, crevices, archways and gutters. the average depth of our
dive sites is 20 metres; most are multi-level with rocky-reef
topography. some sites have excellent walls, swim-throughs and
bubble caves and can drop off to 50 metres.
soft corals and sponge gardens are part of the beauty, alongside
large schooling fish, weedy sea dragons, red Indian fish, a variety
of sharks (the docile kind!) plus many other vertebrates and invertebrates.

winter diving in jervis bay is superb. the westerly winds allow
our boats to visit many of the sites outside of the bay, which
are difficult to dive during the summer months.
clean water upwelling
from the continental shelf means the average visibility is at
least 30 metres in winter
the weedy sea dragon is often seen in jervis bay.
this stunningly beautiful creature is hard to spot and is unique
to australia's southern coastline.
one of our favourite winter dives is the seal colony
south of st georges headland. over 50 australian fur seals migrate
every year to this area, and stay between june and october.
The seals should
certainly not be missed
we have two resident pods of bottlenose dolphins
and they are often sighted on the trips to and from dive sites.
humpback whales and southern wright whales frequent the bay during
their migratory periods; may to June and September to October.
diving jervis bay is an excellent
opportunity to observe whales at play

there is also a range of other activities for the non-divers
of the family to get involved in.

throughout the year.
