South Australia’s large coastline has well over 20 diveable jetties and many easily accessible shore dives spanning our metropolitan and regional areas. Some of these shallow dives are abundant in unique marine life and suitable for all levels of diver. The sites are often accessed by jetties/piers with entry and exit from stairs, ladders or purpose built platforms.

LIST OF JETTY SITES
Currents from both the Indian and Pacific Oceans bring marine life typical to both eastern and western coastal zones, combined with the diversity of our shoreline structures makes for some interesting and unique temperate water reef diving. Most of South Australia’s reef diving is enjoyed in shallow waters, extending bottom times and allowing for maximum time underwater to enjoy the dive.
We also have a number of artificial reef systems put in place to encourage marine life to certain area’s. Join Adelaide Scuba on a variety of local boat dives departing from our store, see the monthly schedules for times and locations.
LIST OF REEF SITES
South Australia has a rich maritime history with more than 800 shipwrecks recorded along the coast and inland waters. They provide a haven for marine life and an excellent platform for dive training and recreational dives. There are also a number of deliberately scuttled wrecks for the diving community such as the Ex HMAS Hobart.
Our shipwrecks are a non renewable heritage resource, we believe the protection of these historic sites is critical for the preservation of the states marine history and the surrounding marine life. Adelaide Scuba are wreck diving specialists conducting wreck specific training and fun dives on our SA wreck sites.
