Scuba Diving in Port Noarlunga Jetty, 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 some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world here). 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.
Port Noarlunga Jetty, a popular site among divers of all levels, is covered with beautiful and impressive sponge and algae (food delicacy for all kind of marine life). The Northern section is accessible from the platform at the end of the Port’s Jetty, while the south section can be be accessed via a snorket of around 100m from the beach opposite. Alternatively, the spot can be reached by boat from O’Sullivan’s Beach boat ramp.
