  • Nelson Bay Dive Site Descriptions - Scuba Diving in Nelson Bay
    up early to get a carpark There is a well defined access path to a set of concrete steps at the waters edge this is the usual starting point DIVE SITE DESCRIPTION WARNING This dive must be done on a SLACK tide as the currents here are VERY STRONG It is always recommended to dive here on the high slack tide as it produces the best visibility It can also be dived on the low slack tide but the visibility is generally very poor Fly Point is considered a very easy and safe dive site hence it is a very popular training ground for Open Water courses and many dive shops come up from Sydney to teach here It can get very crowded at times with dive courses especially over summer and the Easter break After entering the water and snorkeling out to where the water starts to deepen around 4 5 metres descend and head to your left north west and a few minutes later about 30 metres you will come across the first of 2 ledges that run in parallel with the shore You can follow these ledges to the left for quite some time and if you look carefully you may find the school of pineapple fish that are known to frequent this area The school of pineapple fish can be found near the ledge where the plaque and garden gnomes are located There is good sponge life right along this area After following these ledges for some time you can head out into the deeper water where the larger sponge gardens are Out in the deeper water 17 22 metres there are prolific sponge gardens and I mean prolific Every part of the substrate is covered in sponges and the colours are amazing There is a very large old deck winch that can be found out in this area in about 20 metres Another way you can dive Fly Ppoint is to continue following the ledges to the left until you are quite away back around the point and you will come across larger ledges covered in kelp You can either keep going this way and exit your dive on the small beach and walk up the hill about 100 metres to the carpark or turn around and head back the way you came and exit back at the stairs If you do head back the same way don t rush over the kelp and weed beds in 4 5mtrs of water there are plenty of things to see nudibranchs in plenty of varieties large flathead and if you look hard enough you can even find sea horses Another way to dive Fly Point is instead of heading left west to the ledges enter the water and follow the sand ridge around to the right This is an excellent spot to find macro life and on one dive we found over 10 tiger pipe fish There is a very large old tractor tyre in about 10
