About Local Knowledge
With over 40 years of local knowledge diving and operating in Sydney Harbour and its offshore dive sites Sydney Dive Charters does provide their customers a unique dive charter experience. We can and do change our sites daily due to weather and sea conditions but as we know almost every inch of Sydney’s underwater environment we can maximise our clients experience by not only getting you into the best dive site on the day but being able to give a very comprehensive dive briefing of what you will see, where to find it and what depth range is the best.
We regularly explore Sydney’s almost limitless deeper offshore reefs for new dive sites. Jason is always happy to discuss operating special charter’s to different dive sites or locations throughout NSW or interstate.
I had an awesome couple of dives on the Ex-HMAS Adelaide for my 100th dive. It was an amazing experience thanks to Jason's excellent boat and service, his detailed briefing really helped me navigate the ship wreck.
We dive regularly with Jason. He really looks after us. Great diving. Love the boat. Dives run on time which let's us get to work after our dives.
I've chartered Sydney Dive Charters for my company's annual Christmas party and we had a great time, the boat is great and Jason really went out of his way to accommodate our needs. I will definitely be back on board this year!
“I’ve been diving with Jason aboard Sydney Dive Charters dive boat for nearly 3 years now and I keep coming back. I’ve had the pleasure of exploring and enjoying some of the best technical wrecks in the Sydney Region. The boat makes for comfortable, easy diving - which when coupled with Jason’s local knowledge provides a complete service. There is nothing better than diving on a boat when you know the skipper is first and foremost a diver himself”
