Diving from the Ocean Trek


The best way to dive is on a live-aboard, it is just too easy, maximising the diving experience and you can do so much more diving while living the whole dive experience.

Located approximately 2.5 hours drive south of Sydney. Jervis Bay is consistently ranked as one of the best dive locations to dive in NSW. Jervis Bay has crystal clear water with viz. ranging from 10-25m. 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. The giant sandstone cliffs that ring the entrance to the bay have over millions of years collapsed into the sea forming caves, tunnels, archways, drop offs and terraces providing homes to the many and varied sea creatures that live in and around the bay.

Ocean TrekThe best way to dive Jervis Bay is on the 18m live-a-board Ocean Trek. Ocean Trek accommodation is for 23 guests in ten rooms. Ocean Trek has a spacious dive deck  and when you are not diving you can relax in the large dining and saloon area with CD deck ,video ,TV and tape deck. A marine reference library is available for divers reference while on board.

Diving from the Ocean Trek 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.  There is nothing better than to put your gear together on the first dive and not have to assemble/disassemble the entire weekend.

The diving in Jervis Bay is special and the Ocean Trek gives you access to the best of it.  You will see underwater life is abundant, with big schools of yellowtail and old wives. The beautiful untouched sponge gardens are nothing like what you have seen in Sydney. The sponge gardens support 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.
