Dive Reports

Area Info

Port Stephens (Nelson Bay) is a beautiful, relaxed holiday area located 230 km north of Sydney. This picturesque, blue-water bay is bordered by clean beaches, rugged bushland and a number of weather-beaten offshore islands.

Diving outside the bay is fantastic, with plenty of reefs, deep drop-offs and a number of historic shipwrecks. Even inside the bay, the diving is great boasting three of the top shore dives on the east coast of Australia.

Put it together with the drop gorgeous scenery, wide white beaches, friendly locals... and Nelson Bay is a pretty hard place to pass by.
