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.
