Scuba Diving in Stenhouse Bay, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia

Maximum depth:
32.8ft/10m
Visibility:
Good
Stenhouse Bay is a small settlement at the southern end of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, on the eastern side of Innes National Park. This is a dive spot which is not for the faint-hearted, and should definitely be attempted when the swell is at a minimum.

Its depth is from 8 to 10 m /26 to 32 ft and it’s entry is down a narrow ladder at the base of the jetty. First you do need to walk down the steep hill to get there. The dive itself can be quite spectacular, with interesting pylon growth and plenty of fish and critters to see.

A wide variety of fish species can be observed off beaches in the park or the Stenhouse Bay Jetty.  Sweeps and boar-fishes are the most common fishes you may come across but not only. In close proximity to the beach, the Stenhouse Bay Campground is a great location to set up a base camp for exploring the rest of the park as caravans and generators are permitted.

Pit toilets and barbecue facilities available nearby. Alternatively, many other accommodation options are also available in close distance to the spot, mostly close to Marion Bay. The best period to visit the location is during the summer months. Stenhouse Bay is also a stunning section of Innes national park where you can whale watch from the cliff tops during the winter months. Don’t miss it!
