Scuba Diving in Gap, Marion Bay, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia

Maximum depth:
Skill level:
Beginners and advanced
Gap is an exciting spot for scuba diving, located in Marion Bay, Yorke Peninsula. This spot is usually combined with the Willyama spot where a wreck of 1897 is located at Rhino's Head of Marion Bay.

A mast sticks out of the water and the rest of the wreck lies scattered around the bottom. Do in conjunction with ”The Gap” spot and the surrounding islands if you have enough air on your way back.

Minimum winter temperatures average around 4°C/39.2°F and the maximum can reach 40°C/104°F during summer. Due to the colder southern ocean waters, a wetsuit is often required for skin-diving or scuba diving activities or for any prolonged periods in the water even in the warmer summer months. Air refills for scuba tanks are available at various locations throughout Yorke Peninsula.

However, there is only a diving school, which is based in Adelaide and organizing scuba diving in The Gap, accessible by boat from Marion Bay. The spot is recommended for both amateurs and advanced divers. Be careful at this spot, since the surge can be heavy if there’s a swell. The topography runs in a circle and it’s easy to get lost and disoriented.

There’s also a cave in the wall and plenty of marine life everywhere. The maximum depth of the dive spot is at 15 m/49 ft while the average visibility is up to 15 m/49 ft long. Let yourself to be seduced by the beauty and the variety of the marine life of the spot: Blue groupers, blue devils, nannaguis, sweeps, reef fishes.

Accommodation options and leisure activities are located in Marion Bay, while the Innes National Park gives you a good chance to redefine your touch with nature.
