Sydney is unequaled by any major city in which to scuba dive

A recent study revealed that Sydney has more marine species than any other harbour in the world. Some 600 marine animals have already been identified, and we can be sure that there are more to be found. One of the great attractions of diving around Sydney is its abundant sea life. Along with the diverse marine life found around Sydney, the coastline around Sydney is such that there is a great dive site around every corner.


Located central to Sydney's best scuba diving, Abyss Scuba Diving is Sydney's leading PADI 5-star dive shop. Abyss offers boat dives, free guided shore dives along with dive trips both around New South Wales.


On average, Abyss has more than fifty different scuba diving activities every month. There is no need for you to have a buddy because our divemasters can organise a dive buddy for you. As long as you have proof of scuba certification, no matter the diver certification agency (PADI, SSI, BSAC, ANDI, RAID, GUE), you can come scuba dive with us.

Note:  Transport is not included for this dive, if you require a lift please be here no later than 45 minutes before start time. If no lift can be provided with the best option is an Uber to and from the site.
