Although Western Australia is best known for the incredible diving at Ningaloo Reef and the Rowley Shoals, the South West is fast developing a reputation as the best kept secret within a few hours of Perth.Perth Scuba Lena wreck Bunbury by Joey Pool-9856

Bunbury is located at the northern end of the incredible Geographe Bay, and boasts stunning beaches and crystal clear waters that typify the Western Australia.  It is life beneath the water’s surface is becoming ever more respected by divers in the know, with excellent coral reefs, and an the abundance of fish life.

Offshore we’ll show you pinnacles of coral vaulting up to the shallows. These are known locally as ‘Coral Lumps’ and are often bejewelled with sessile life forms. These formations bring water up from the ocean floor against their walls, feeding the sponges and soft corals that cling to its sides as well as creating an environment that supports a plethora of crustaceans and schools of resident fish.

Our divers often see…

All of this is in less than 20 meters of water which make them ideal for all open water certified scuba divers.

A new addition to the Bunbury aquatic environment, is the FV Lena dive wreck which lies in 18 metres of water, and only three nautical miles off Bunbury.

All tours include a double dive (including at least one dive on the FV Lena).
