Scuba Diving in Port Noarlunga Southern Reef, 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.
Port Noarlunga Southern Reef, a popular site among advanced divers mostly, is a pretty easy dive with good visibility and prolific fish life at relatively shallow depths. You can follow the underwater trail (12 underwater markers starting from the jetty and ending at the reef), or start at the gap of the reef.
Don’t forget to explore the small cave and the overhangs. Be prepared to see leather jackets, Blue Devils, cuttlefish, old wives, strongies, silver drummers, zebras and carpet sharks. Be careful of the currents, as sometimes they can be strong.
Maximum depth: 12 m/39 ft.
