BOOK NOW

We’re heading up to South West Rocks for a week of spectacular diving at one of Australia’s top 5 dive sites, the legendary Fish Rock! This is a Drive and Dive trip, so we’re hitting the open road in a 12 seater van with excellent company, great music and good vibes all the way!

Temperate and tropical waters come together at Fish Rock to create one of the most unique and exciting diving experiences. The unique topography combined with the mixed waters result in a veritable explosion of marine life! From Giant Queensland Gropers, turtles, huge Wobbegong Sharks and the world famous Grey Nurse Sharks to Giant Cuttlefish and schools of Black Cod, the variety and abundance of species is simply staggering.

Fish Rock is an important breeding area for Grey Nurse Sharks which can be seen here all year round. These fascinating sharks are incredibly docile and will often allow you to get quite close for that special moment or perfect shot. While these sharks can grow to over 3m in length, their calm demeanour and easy temperament make them the ideal species to dive with. They feed mainly on fish, squid and crustaceans and do not pose a threat to humans.

Fish Rock is also well known for having the only true ocean cave dive in Australia. The cave cuts straight through Fish Rock for about 125m and the crystal clear water is absolutely packed with life. It even includes a bubble cave where you can come up and talk to your buddy while still being more than 5m underwater!

Our hosts for this trip will be South West Rocks Dive Centre. They have been diving these waters for more than 40 years and have been featured on a number of documentaries, so there is no one better to explore this location with!
