Dive Steep Point
To scuba dive in Shark Bay means experiencing the “Wild West”. Steep Point is world renowned as a fishing location but the surrounding World Heritage listed marine park is one of the undiscovered jewels of the diving world.
What can you see?
Our full day tours visit areas populated by species including Queensland grouper, turtles, crayfish, cuttlefish, stingrays, mackerel, trevally and of course SHARKS! And when we say SHARKS we mean Grey nurse, Tawny nurse, Sandbar whalers, Dusky whalers, Wobbegongs, Tiger Sharks and even Whalesharks. All of these species can be seen while diving here! Humpback whales, dolphins and dugongs are also residents of this area depending on the time of year. Ancient tectonic activity has created huge underwater caverns encrusted in stunning soft corals. Worth travelling to the edge of Australia for!
Dive Dirk Hartog Island
If the swell is too big to dive at Steep Point, we also offer the chance to dive at one of the most historic sites in Western Australia, Dirk Hartog Island. On 25 October 1616 Captain Dirk Hartog landed at what is now known as Cape Inscription. This was the earliest recorded landing of European explorers in WA.
What can you see?
Dirk Hartog Island is now a national park and has several marine sanctuary zones in surrounding waters. With little human interaction, this place is one of Shark Bay’s best-known secrets, and notoriously one of the hardest to reach! The shallow turquoise waters surrounding Sandy Point Sanctuary Zone and Louisa Bay are full of pristine coral gardens brimming with marine life both big and small. We have dive sites for all levels of experience that are accessible in almost all weather conditions.
