Maximum Depth:
26m/85.28ft
Kurnell is a suburb in southern Sydney, at about 22 km/14 mi in the south of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Kurnell is on the southern headland of Botany Bay, just opposite the suburb of La Perouse. Kurnell boasts some of Sydney’s top dive sites.

Cape Solander is considered to be one of Sydney’s best whale watching spots and another shore dive in the Kurnell National Park. It is about at 200 m/656 ft away from the Leap parking area. The maximum depth here is at 26 m/85.28 ft. Visibility is good in favorable conditions.

The spot is suitable for advanced divers only, due to its depth. Also, inexperienced divers are not able to handle the conditions at the entry and exit points that can change rapidly.

Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter. The ideal time to dive this spot is on an incoming tide. Divers may encounter wobbegongs, Port Jackson sharks, southern eagle rays, giant cuttlefish, bull rays, moray eel, blue groper, schools of yellow-tail, catfish as well as a wide range of nudibranch.

Keep in mind that the conditions can change without warning and decompression is possible. Last but not least, you are required to pay an entry fee to the park.
