DIVE SHARK BAY
DIRK HARTOG ISLAND & STEEP POINT
About the tour
The jewel in the crown of Shark Bay diving. Experience the “Wild West” on one of our full day tours to the Steep Point region of Shark Bay. World renowned as a fishing location this World Heritage listed marine park is one of the undiscovered and untouched jewels of the diving world. 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 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!
Your day will start at 7:45am at Denham Commercial Jetty (departure is at 8:00am), where you’ll board our comfortable purpose-built dive vessel, Woomerangee, an 11m power catamaran for groups of 6-12. It will take us around 1.5 hours to reach our destination. To keep you interested on route, our experienced skipper and dive guides will offer you a marine life or maritime history briefing on the local area. The tour includes two dives as well as a delicious lunch at one of our favourite snorkelling spots. Our dives are for maximum dive time of 50 minutes or 50 bar and the dive sites have a maximum depth of 18m, so are suitable for Open Water divers. The water temperature at Steep Point varies between 20-26ºC and you can see sharks, rays, turtles, beautiful hard and soft corals, caves and more. We’ll have you back in Denham by 4pm.
*Please note – This is not a snorkel tour. One short snorkel may be available if weather permits while we set up lunch. If you wish to do a snorkel tour check out our Full Day Marine Safari.
All snorkel guides are certified PADI professional Divemasters or Instructors so you’ll be in good hands. Our skippers have a combined 30 years experience captaining vessels in Shark Bay
