Boat Diving Sydney

Our dive boat has been designed for divers, having all the necessities that make a great boat diving. Entry and exit are easy with a big dive platform and a fin-friendly ladder. There is even a hot freshwater shower to rinse off. There are sun cream, wind jackets and even shampoo to wash your hair. The boat does have a toilet.

Our guided boat dives offer a range of Sydney dive destinations and plenty of sheltered boat dive sites to pull up for a light lunch between dives. Lunch consists of soup with a selection of spreads, as well as cheese and biscuits. After the double dive, there is some chocolate to the top of the great experience. As a rule, we always advise you to take seasickness tablets. 

Dive Boat Pickup

Our dive boat pick-up for the majority of our dives is located only five minutes for the dive centre. Head south from the shop down Rocky Point Road to  San Souci Park. The Pickup is from the fishermen's wharf at San Souci Park. Lots of car parking is available.

Note: Dive boat sites deeper than 18 metres - require Advanced certification. It is a requirement that all divers carry a signal tube (safety sausage). If you do not own one,  you can purchase one at the time of booking or on the morning of the dive. The cost of the double boat dive is $120 including Divemaster services and snacks. The divemaster is there to help all divers but they are assisting up to 10 divers. If you feel you need your own private DM, then this service is available for an extra $149.

One of the better of the deeper wrecks off Sydney is the SS Kelloe. The Kelloe was a iron hulled collier. On the 13th of May 1902 the Kelloe went down after a collision with the Dunmore. Sitting on a sandy bottom broken by bits of the adjacent edge of the rocky reef, its depth is 48 to 51 metres. The wreck is sitting upright with the bow facing north. The main features of the wreck is the very large boiler and the engine. The boiler rises at least 3 to 4 metres from the bottom and is intact. The hull is opened out and is pretty messy and flat. On the eastern side the hull sits up a metre or two but otherwise, the main part of the wreck is absolutely flat. There is a large hole in the hull just forward of the stern that you can swim through. If conditions make the planned site unsuitable, then another site will be selected for the dive. You need to be tec certified with a redundant air source for this one. It is NOT DM led. All divers need to be experienced in tec diving The boat will Depart at the scheduled time from Sans souci public Fishing wharf off River side drive.
