Recreational Double Boat Dives
Sydney Dive Charters operates weekly scheduled recreational double boat dives to dive sites that cater for all levels of certification and experience. Our dive sites have been selected to maximise our guest’s experience, and are located in and around the coast of Sydney Harbour. Scuba divers will dive along rock walls or around boulder fields that are covered in spectacular soft and hard corals or covered in beautifully coloured Sponges.
Typically divers can dive with Grey Nurse sharks, large and small schools of fish, including large pelagic Kingfish or smaller species of Tuna dependant on the dive site and the time of year. Found amongst the reef are many brightly coloured tropical and subtropical species of fish, giant Cuttlefish, Crayfish and black Bull Rays. We also dive along the reef edge looking for the Weedy Seadragons, which can be found hiding amongst the kelp gardens, a real treat for the avid underwater photographer.
