Big Rock, Seal Rocks NSW Australia
There are four different dive sites surrounding the Big Rock island. It is here that the Grey Nurse Sharks aggregate in the greatest numbers on the East Coast of Australia Dive depths 8 metres to 40 plus metres.
Little Rock, Seal Rocks NSW Australia
A great dive site, Grey Nurse Sharks, huge cod, massed schools of baitfish, kingfish, snapper and the occasional Bronze Whaler Shark all add to the excitement. Circumnavigation of the island is possible on a single dive. Depth 15 to 22 metres, it is in these shallower depths that all of the action occurs. The bottom depth drops away to 40 metres plus all ‘round the island.
Jimmy's Cave, Seal Rocks NSW Australia
Jimmy's Cave is part of complex underwater cave system that rivals anything similar in Australia. It is the favourite site of many local divers. Grey Nurse Sharks, huge cod, jewfish and giant lobsters are all found here. A superb specimen of a Black Coral tree is another feature of the dive. This is a guided dive that is undertaken as an underwater tour. Advanced qualification and torches are essential. Depth, 10 metres on top of the ridge, to 34 metres in the cave system.
The Interlinked Caves Seal Rocks NSW Australia
The Interlinked Caves are located in the same area as Jimmy's Cave. The depth is also very similar to Jimmy's Cave at 33 metres. As the name suggests, these caves lie adjacent to one another. As you exit one, another entrance presents itself to be explored. We have had many divers comment that this is the best sea cave dive that they have ever done.
Shipwreck, S.S. Satara, Seal Rocks NSW Australia
The wreck of the S.S. Satara is one of the best shipwreck dives on the East Coast of Australia. At 125 metres (410 feet) long and weighing 5200 tonnes she is a huge ship. The S.S. Satara sank in a storm in April 1910 after hitting the submerged reef of Edith Breaker. Minimum requirements for divers to undertake this dive are Advanced or Deep Diver certification with recent logged history of deep dives. Depth 35 to 44 metres. photo courtesy of Michael mcfayden
Shipwreck, S.S. Catterthun, Seal Rocks NSW Australia
The S.S. Catterthun is a fantastic wreck dive. The wreck has been the subject of articles in Australian Geographic and many dive magazines. The Catterthun sank with the loss of 55 lives in August 1895 after striking the underwater bombie southeast of the Little Rock. With a depth of 55 to 62 metres, the Catterthun is a dive for very experienced divers only. The wrecksite is also often subject to strong currents, which can prevent diving. photo courtesy of Michael mcfayden
