South Australia and Adelaide have lots of fun and diverse shore dives on offer. Think about joining Diving Adelaide on some shore dives if you’re looking for a fun and safe dive, guided by a professional. This is the ideal option if you are looking for a little more experience before going diving without a dive leader with one of your dive buddies.
Jetty dives are really popular in Adelaide. The most well-known jetties on the Fleurieu Peninsula are the Port Noarlunga Jetty and Rapid Bay Jetty. On the Yorke Peninsula you can find the beautiful Edithburg Jetty, Port Hughes Jetty and Wool Bay Jetty, along with many more! Diving Adelaide organises weekends away to the Yorke Peninsula where you will have the time to explore these beautiful South Australian dive spots.
There are several shore dives around Adelaide that require a simple shore (beach) entry. Examples are the Bluff in Victor Harbor, Second Valley and Lassiter’s Reef.
At the Bluff you will most likely encounter a Leafy Seadragon, and possibly some seals or sea lions. During most of the dive you will dive along a wall and explore the rocks and cravices looking for crabs and crayfish. It’s a very nice dive but make sure you dive it when the weather conditions are appropriate.
Second Valley is mostly known for the small caves and tunnel systems, where you can usually find some interesting creatures that hide in the seaweed and amongst the rocks and stones.
