Snorkelling and diving around Nelson Bay

Nelson Bay and surrounds offer some superb snorkelling and diving. Many locations are accessible by boat only, such as beautiful Broughton Island, but there are some exceptional shore dives and snorkelling – some shore dives have even been rated among the best in the country. The easy access and plentiful marine life in the marine sanctuary at Fly Point makes it a top spot for a snorkel or easy dive, with sponge gardens, schools of bream, tarwine, mullet, big silver drummer, nudibranchs and wondrous seahorses. The pipeline, near the Fish Co-op, has moray eels, eastern rock lobsters, tropical fish during summer, cuttlefish, octopus, pipefish and more seahorses. Pro Dive at Nelson Bay can provide detailed advice and all the gear you need.
