Two-Mile Reef

Rated 5.0, 2 votes

Two Mile is a barrier reef protecting a narrow channel between the high sand dunes on the south of Bazaruto Island and the long, white beaches of the North Point of Benguerra Island. The north tip of the reef is mid-way between the islands and runs southwards, parallel to Benguerra Island, approximately 4.5 kilometers east of its shore. The top of the reef protrudes from the sea at low tide, and slopes gently towards the east. It is well known for its excellent snorkeling sites inside the reef s...

Haydens Rock

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Haydens Rock is the 'cruisiest' dive around town. It is a large rocky outcrop situated between Pebbly Beach and Forsters' Main Beach, approximately 150 meters off the headland. This dive site is very good for the beginner diver right up to the very advanced diver. Haydens Rock is home to an array of marine life including numerous amounts of species of small tropical fish, which come and go at different times throughout the year. There are Blue Groper, Moray eels, Stingrays and Southern Eagle Ray...

Point Peron

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Point Peron is a great shallow shore dive with good visibility depending on the sea conditions. Don't forget to take a dive flag at this dive site and as this is part of the Shoalwater Islands Marine park it is also a case of look but don't take, you are permitted to take certain things such as crayfish but certain restrictions do apply so check first. You will find lots of limestone reef with an abundance of sea life. There is no set route to this dive, any of the rocky areas that you can see ...

West End

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

As its name West End implies this site is to be found on the most Western tip of Rottnest Island. One of the great things about diving here is that there is a chance that you could see anything, absolutely anything from a whale to a shark or turtle. This really is the wild west. Diving here is not for the faint hearted with big swells and currents at most times of the year and in most weather conditions. Even underwater the surge can be very strong. Be careful of boats and of getting swept away...

Roe Reef

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Roe Reef is one of the must dive sites at Rottnest Island and is located on the northeast end about 2 miles off shore. You will find some of the best limestone caves that I have ever found in the ocean here. Good fish life and good visibility, what more could you ask for. In a big swell you will find that you get some strong surge in the caves. This is a very popular area with boats so make certain that you have a good dive flag up and leave a lookout up on the boat. Dive Roe Reef when the ocea...

Saxon Ranger

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

The Saxon Ranger, also known as the Atlantic Seal started life as a side trawler working the North Atlantic out of the UK. The vessel was sunk as a dive wreck in May 2006 in Warnbro Sound, just South of Rockingham. The Saxon Ranger lies in a sheltered area of water and at 40 meters in length you are able to see the entire inside and outside of the wreck on a single dive. The many access holes, cut during the sinking, make this a very safe wreck to explore, with many nooks and crannies giving hom...

Windara Banks

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Windara Banks is an amazing place. A bit like Ayer's Rock but then underwater. The scale of the rocky outcrop is enormous with big gullies around the sides and some huge shelves It can be fully appreciated when the visibility is good which is often the case so far off shore. This dive site is 14km from land and is very close to the edge of the continental shelf and really deep water. Because of this it the wildest place most divers would ever see. Expect anything such as Tiger sharks, Hammerhea...

Caicos Bank

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

The Caicos Bank is the turquoise colored sea just south of Providenciales and Caicos. It is shallow and consists out of tidal flats and swamps creating an excellent habitat for conch and lobsters. On its southern edge, the bank drops down into the abyss creating excellent dive sites in the form of drop-offs with plenty of marine life. One of the highlights on the Caicos Banks is the Molasses Reef Wreck, just east of West Caicos. It is the oldest shipwreck found in the western hemisphere and dat...

Tuheiava Pass

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

The entrance to the dive Tuheiava Pass is done on the side of the pass even when the current is going out. Depending on the force of the current, we can sometimes even go to the middle of the pass before turning back to circle around. This dive is adaptable to divers of any level of experience. Around the large coral formations gravitate a multitude of fish (parrots, triggers, groupers) and we try to distinguish the moray eels, lionfish and large stone fish hiding in the crevices. In the open wa...

Bolifushi Wreck

Rated 5.0, 1 votes

A wreck in the north of South Male, just south of the island Bolifuri, is called Bolifushi Wreck. Not much is known about the wreck and divers should concentrate on its fantastic array of marine life and invertebrates. Plenty of healthy corals can be found....
