The jewel in the crown of Shark Bay diving. Experience the “Wild West” on one of our full day tours to the Steep Point region of Shark Bay. World renowned as a fishing location this World Heritage listed marine park is one of the undiscovered and untouched jewels of the diving world. Our full day tours visit areas populated by species including Queensland grouper, turtles, crayfish, cuttlefish, stingrays, mackerel, trevally and of course SHARKS! And when we say SHARKS we mean – Grey nurse, Tawny nurse, Hammerheads, Tiger sharks, Sandbar whalers, Dusky Whalers, Wobbegongs – all of these species can be seen diving in this area! Humpback whales, dolphins and dugongs are also residents of this area depending on the time of year. Ancient tectonic activity has created huge underwater caverns encrusted in stunning soft corals which are beautifully lit by sunlight penetrating through cracks in the rock – worth travelling to the edge of Australia for!
In the event we are unable to dive at Steep Point due to weather conditions we also offer the chance to dive at one of the most historic sites in Western Australia, Dirk Hartog Island. On 25 October 1616 Captain Dirk Hartog landed at what is now known as Cape Inscription, this was the earliest recorded landing of European explorers in WA.
Dirk Hartog Island is now a national park and has several marine sanctuary zones in surrounding waters. With little human interaction, this place is one of Shark Bay’s best-known secrets, and notoriously one of the hardest to reach! The shallow turquoise waters surrounding the island are full of pristine coral gardens brimming with marine life both big and small. We have dive sites for all levels of experience that are accessible in almost all weather conditions around the Sandy Point Sanctuary Zone and Louisa Bay area of Dirk Hartog Island.
Your day will start at Denham jetty, where you’ll board our comfortable dive boat, Woomerangee. It will take us around 1.5 hours to reach our destination but to keep you interested on route, our experienced skipper and dive guides will offer you a marine life or maritime history briefing on the local area so you’ll learn as you cruise. The day includes two dives as well as a delicious lunch at one of our favourite snorkelling spots. We’ll have you back in Denham by late afternoon.
We are the only PADI dive centre in Shark Bay and pride ourselves on our level of service, catering for small groups of divers going to some of the most untouched reefs in Australia. We also guarantee there will never be more than 10 divers on the boat!
All tours are subject to weather conditions and minimum numbers of four. Dive and snorkelling spots will be chosen by the crew subject to weather conditions.>
