Scuba Diving in South Australia

Introduction

Leatherjackets

South Australia offers a wonderful variety of diving options.  There are many reefs to explore within the state's temperate waters.  Wreck dives vary from an easy dive with no penetration, to the excitement of diving the amazing ship the 'Hobart'.  Jetty dives are prolific and varied.  Rapid Bay jetty is considered to be one of Australia's best.

Diving is possible all year round, with warm, calm days throughout the summer, and clear, calm days during the winter. One of the real attractions to plunging the depths in the gulf waters is the fact that you can dive from the shore and still see such elusive creatures as the leafy seadragon.

Fish, crustaceans, nudibranchs, molluscs, invertebrates and cnidarians are all to be found in our waters, some endemic to the region.
