Guide Shore Dive Calendar

The dives leave the dive shop in Ramsgate at 10 am (although it is wise to check the schedule in case specific days require a variation to these times).

To ensure your safety we require those divers, who have not dived in the past 12 months and who have less than 20 dives experience, to undertake a scuba review prior to going on one of our shore dives. We run refresher courses every month so if you have not dived for a while be safe and tune up your diving skills.

Please note:

  • These rates only apply to those who book and pay online but not to those who book online and then only pay when they come to the dive centre.
  • Rental equipment is to be collected at the dive centre at Ramsgate and we require proof of certification at the time of collection.
  • Divers are required to pick up and return their rental equipment to the dive shop. Divemasters will not take it to the site or return it to the dive centre for you.
  • For all cancellations, there is a $25 administration fee. There is no refund once the equipment leaves the dive centre!

Comments: After doing OW with Abyss, it was fantastic to get back out in the water straight away. Have done Bare Island and Windy Point/Oak Park with them through these shore dives. As a new diver it is reassuring to have them lead you through these great places and point out the things of interest, which, if you didn't know were there you would probably swim straight past. Like Weedy Sea Dragons, Eels and Cuttlefish hiding under rock ledges, they know the landscapes and what to look for at each place, as... More details

"Diving with Abyss"

Comments: I successfully completed my open water diver accreditation April 2014. I recommend the PADI on line course and the small group pool and river training dives. Since then I have dived with the Abyss club many times. I was initially nervous, they are really supportive and encouraging. Their double shore dives are a great way to dive around Sydney with a dive master and if your buddy can't make it. Thanks Abyss.

"Friday Shore Dive - Oak Park"

Comments: I had a great club dive day at Oak Park on Friday. The Divemaster was friendly and professional, making sure that everyone in the group was happy and comfortable with the dive. We did 2 dives with a social break for lunch in between. Both dives were full of things to see, lots of large and small sea life. It was really nice to see different points of interest on the 2 dives. The pace was relaxed, I didn't feel at all rushed, although at the same time I feel as though we saw a lot. I really enjoy... More details

Comments: The guides, the people, the locations and the free soup is fantastic! I would recommend Abyss for shore dives. I have also completed my Open and Advanced Diver Courses with Abyss and and can confirm they are one of the best dive centres I have gone diving with. Enjoy.

"Red Indian Fish @ Bare Island"

Comments: I've dived with the outstanding Abyss Team at Bare Island many times but I must admit that the shore dives today at Bare Island were excellence. The water wasn't that cold & visibility was really good on both sides especially on the eastern side. It was on the western side of the island where I saw a Red Indian fish for the 1st time & I couldn't believe my eyes when I was 1st approaching it :D The depth & temperature were 10.5m & 19.4 respectively. I've noticed that it doesn't move or react at a... More details

Comments: I'm told that this is the best site in Sydney (and in fact in NSW) to see the sea dragons (weedy's) and its at the entrance to Botany Bay. The southern side of the bay’s entrance is home to the most number of sea dragons known from one location. we saw school of fishes, rays and also male weedy's carrying eggs onto the underside of the tail. Our dive masters was George , who did an excellent job of instructing us and making us feel comfortable in the water. The staff was helpful, friendly and ve... More details
