Scuba Diving in Leather Jacket Alley, Adelaide, South Australia Australia
The metropolitan area of Adelaide is famous for the variety and great number of diving sites it has to offer (you can visit here some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world). The waters have the perfect temperature for scuba diving (warm during the summer and crystal clear during the winter), and are generally friendly and uncrowded.
Leather Jacket Alley, a popular site for divers of all levels, offers many natural gutters and hosts a truly prolific marine life at shallow depth. Be prepared to see many leatherjackets (hence the name of the site) cuttlefish, squids, old wives, strongies, spider crabs, sea pikes and some beautiful sea tulips. There are practically no hazard in the area as the currents are pretty low.
Average visibility rate: 10 m/32 ft. Maximum depth: 10 m/32 ft.
