Brunei is also home to a vast array of artificial reefs, including oil rigs and ship wrecks dating back to WWII.

Dive sites are located only 15-20 minutes away from the dive shop, so no exhaustive travelling time! The condition of the dive sites are great as they’ve been relatively untouched due to very infrequent diver visits.

Sunday 16th December 2012 8:30am (FREE Shore Dive)

Join the Perth Scuba Crew for a FREE BBQ brekky and then we’ll head out for a fun shore dive that’s easy on those tired eyes. We’ll be heading down to Point Peron where the entry is easy and you may even get buzzed by a dolphin!

You can choose to dive directly in front of the carpark where there’s a small sand patch that gives you access to the South side of the point. The point is very shallow so you’ll need to be careful. If you follow the path from the West side of the point this provides easy access to a more sheltered and deeper dive. Point Peron is littered with kelp, but if you look carefully you’ll find loads of caves and swim throughs that have many critters hiding within their depths.

Expect to find lots of old wives, bulleyes, southern coral fish, blue devils and wrasses under the overhangs. All levels of divers are welcome so please feel free to join us at Perth Scuba. Alternate dive site will be Robb Jetty.

Wednesday 19th December 2012 7.00pm (FREE Night Dive)

Join the Perth Scuba Crew for a FREE night dive at Palm Beach Jetty. We’re off on the hunt for Christmas Prawns and Crabs to take home to make Mum happy. Everyone is welcome to join us so head on down! Don’t forget to bring a torch!

Friday 21st December 2012 7.00pm (FREE Night Dive + BBQ)

Join the Perth Scuba Crew for a FREE Night Dive followed by a FREE BBQ at Point Walter Reserve. Everyone is welcome to join us for a night dive & BBQ, so bring the whole family along!

Point Walter is a great spot for chasing big fat prawns and crabs. Not catching? Then there’s heaps of seahorses under the jetty that are very photogenic, plus sea wasps and decorator crabs.

Haven’t night dived before? Give us a call on 9455 4448 so we can arrange an experienced buddy to dive with. And for after the dive – bring a few drinks along and we’ll share a few tall tales of our diving adventures throughout the year. Plus… I hear there’ll be a “special” bearded visitor giving gifts and Christmas Cheer.

Sunday 23rd December 8:30am (FREE Shore Dive)

Join the Perth Scuba Crew for an explore of the wrecks at Blackwall Reach in Bicton. Meet us at Perth Scuba 180 Bannister Road Canning Vale at 8:30am for your FREE BBQ brekky, followed by a shore dive.

There’s a large barge, a few small boats and the remains of a yacht. The barge is quite large and teeming with coral growth and critters crawling over it. We’ll be meeting at the northern end of Blackwall Reach Parade and enter the water near the small jetty. We’ll then surface swim 220m on a bearing of 35° following the cliff to buoy number 716. We’ll then head down the chain where the depth is 14m and head west to the big barge. This wreck has been here since 1967 so there’s plenty of life on it to explore. Give us a call on 9455 4448 to let us know you’ll be there!

Sunday 30th December 8:30am (FREE Shore Dive)

Join the Perth Scuba Crew for a dive and FREE BBQ brekky on a lovely Sunday morning. All levels of divers are welcome to join us! This week we’ll be heading to Mettam’s Pool – north of the river. The weather’s got to be good for this one so we’ll keep our eyes peeled on the forecast.

You’ll see a good number and variety of sea-life at this site. The best reef is to the South of the descent point. The reef ledge drops off to 5-8m and this makes for a good dive along the back of the ledge with lots of small caves and holes to find critters within.

Tuesday 25th – Wednesday 26th December CLOSED


Need gear or air/nitrox fills? Make sure you head into Perth Scuba on Christmas Eve to get your gear and air fills sorted – we’re open until 6:00pm!
