Scuba Diving in Little Bay Beach, Little Bay, New South Wales Australia

Maximum Depth:
Little Bay is a coastal suburb of Sydney, at about 14 km/9 mi in the south-east of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Little Bay beach nestles between headlands to the south and north, providing a good shelter from prevailing sea conditions. It is a great and easy dive site.

Entry can be made from the rocks on the southern end of the beach. After entering, go up over the rocks and you will see a small break-wall. Follow this and admire lots of overhangs, swimthroughs and small canyons. The maximum depth of the dive site is at 15 m/49.2 ft. The spot is appropriate for all levels of divers.

Visibility rate is pretty good on high tide. 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. Expect to see giant cuttlefish, octopus, morey eels, schools of old wife, pipefish, yellow-tail and the occasional King fish. Note: it is also an excellent spot for night dive.
