Here in Australia there are hundreds of high quality shore based dive sites all around our massive coastline, some are very much tide dependent, others you can jump in at any time, many are even better night dives. Shore diving is a cheap way to see many varied dive sites at next to no cost and without the sometimes long boat dives to get to the site.
Boat diving here in Australia is a popular way to access offshore dive sites, wrecks, deeper dive locations and much more. It is done both from commercial dive charter boats, of both the day boat kind and liveaboard variety as well as private boats of all shapes and sizes.
Our directory of Shore and Boat dives is always growing, if you are a member of the site, you can add sites that we do not already have listed by using the option in the menu on the left.
