Maximum depth :
Dive type:
North Head is the northern headland of the entrance to Sydney Harbour. All along this section, there are several excellent dive sites.

Inner Blue Fish Reef is a nice easy dive especially when dive conditions are not ideal (strong southerly winds) and it is close enough to another dive location which called Outer Blue Fish Reef.

The maximum depth is about 18 m/59 ft. Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter.

The visibility here is a little below average and many species, like schools of king-fish, cuttlefish, wrasse, mullet, leatherjackets, bullseyes, sea perch and goat-fish can be observed on the spot. It has many large boulders, caves, sponges and a nice collection of kelp that make this site an exhilarating dive.

Apart from diving, there is a variety of activities, attractions, restaurants and bars available along Sydney’s northern peninsula. Note: book a boat dive in one of the many scuba schools located in the area.
