Jervis Bay's Scuba Diving

Jervis Bay is known for its pristine nature, thanks to which diving here becomes truly marvellous. This unexplored gem lies just two hours away from the southern border of Sydney. The region boasts several dozens of diving sites protected by large cliffs.
This place is home to many unusual marine species, including octopuses and cuttlefish. And seasonal dives with Australian fur seals are the main reason for which the bay became the best dive site in Australia. Another reason to visit Jervis is the possibility to explore local caves and canyons. Vessels that sunk in the bay's waters are just one more reason to come here.

Getting There

Jervis Bay is 180 km away from Sydney International Airport. Upon arrival, you can take a taxi or rent a car to go straight to the coast. If you want to stay for the night, you can rent a villa or a beach house. Also, tourists can visit one of the Huskisson hotels just 10 km away from the bay.


The oceanic climate of the Jervis Bay creates a divorce temperature map, with an average winter temperature of +16 °C and +25 °C in the summer. Sea breezes mitigate the heat, and rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year. Storms with thunder and showers can seldom happen during warm seasons. The rain then can cause flooding. However, that does not hinder diving, which is available all year round.
