Jervis Bay – From a Liveaboard

I have dived Jervis Bay on many occasions now and it is still one of my favorite places to go for a weekend away diving. If you have already dived Jervis Bay then you know what I am talking about, but if you have not dived there yet, then you don’t know what you are missing out on.

We’re running a weekend trip on board the MV Ocean Trek 4-5 August (Friday Night to Sunday Night). This is a great chance to dive Jervis Bay and experience the luxury of liveaboard diving.

Located approximately 2.5 hours drive south of Sydney. Jervis Bay has crystal clear water with viz. ranging from 10-25m. Jervis Bay is approximately 120sq Km of exceptionally clear seawater, fringed by cliffs, rock platforms and the whitest sands in the world. The waters of Jervis Bay are particularly clear and pure due to the fact that no large rivers run into the bay and there is little or no urban development.

Jervis Bay Dive Sites

The dive sites at Jervis Bay are numerous and each site offers something different. Dive sites usually range in depth, so divers can set their own depth limit in accordance with their experience.

Will and I had a fantastic weekend,can’t complain about a thing. The boat, crew, diving, instructors were all top quality. We’d love to do this one again one day. Saw lots of stuff underwater that we’d never seen before.

Underwater life is abundant. Jervis Bay has ecological diversity encompassing a wide range of estuarine and marine habitats, including well over 200 species of fish, 200 species of invertebrates and marine mammals such as dolphins and seals. There are beautiful untouched sponge gardens nothing like what you have seen in Sydney, supporting a vast array of life, such as Sea Baskets, Starfish, Nudibranchs, Pygmy Leatherjackets, Red Indianfish, Weedy Seadragons, Seahorses, numerous rays, Blue Grouper and much more. There are giant underwater boulders, which hide giant cuttlefish, Port Jackson sharks, Blue Devil Fish and Wobbiegongs.

There are underwater cliffs and cracks, there are drop offs and large caves to explore. There are big schools of yellowtail and old wives, dolphins frolic in the bow waves of boats and occasionally the Australian Fur Seal comes into the bay. The underwater scenery and life of Jervis Bay simply has to be seen to be believed.

If you are after a weekend playing with octopus, chasing blue groupers, spotting bull rays, fending off damsal fish, floating over fiddler rays, and photographing weedy’s this is the trip for you!! Great boat, great crew, great food, great surface swim, great priscilla tow, it has it all! And of course the special Abyss crew thrown in to make sure it all runs smoothly.

Ocean Trek Jervis Bay

Diving from a liveaboard gives you the unique opportunity in that you can do as much or as little diving as you want. Have a dive after breakfast, again after lunch and why not hit the water again for a late afternoon dive. After dinner there is always the chance to experience the magic of a night dive as well.

Abyss Scuba Diving is running a weekend trip on board the MV Ocean Trek 26-27th February (Friday Night to Sunday Night). This is a great chance to dive Jervis Bay and experience the luxury of liveaboard diving.

What’s it like on a Liveaboad at Jervis Bay?

Yet again a lovely weekend on Ocean Trek, Jervis Bay. Nothing better than to put your gear together on the first dive and not have to assemble/disassemble the entire holiday. Diving was lovely with each dive site and entry completely different. Loved the scooters too!!

One thought on “Jervis Bay – From a Liveaboard

  1. It is such a lovely weekend. You step on board Friday night and can tell from the greeting just how special the weekend is going to be.
    From when you put your dive gear together for the first dive you don’t have to take it apart till you finish the weekend and are getting off the boat.
    Diving is brilliant with so many different dive sites to experience over the weekend. And, you exit the water to be met with warm towels and yummy food.
    I can’t wait to go, yet again!
