SCUBA DIVING

Current, certified SCUBA diver? Busselton Jetty is one of Australia’s best shore dives and NOT to be missed! Come experience the Wonder Under The Jetty and get up very close and personal with some of its 300 species of marine life. Its a dive that will stay with you for years to come!

And its an easy dive too – all your dive gear awaits you next to the dive site, 1.7kms out to sea at the end of the Jetty. Or you can bring your own and lug it out there… or hire a tank and weights for the dive.

Our dive leader will gear and brief you up and then accompany you on a dive around the massive pylons of the Jetty. Its an eerie-wonder filled place, with the hard and soft corals  like being surrounded by fireworks. Schools of fish, rays, octopus, nudibranchs and so much more await you too.

The tour is for current, certified SCUBA divers who have either dived in the last 12 months or done more than 20 logged dives.
