South West Rocks Diving Experience: Fish Rock Cave
Fish Rock Cave is recognized, published and protected for its significant value in the critical habitat protection program of NSW, truly one of Australia’s ‘best’ and ‘must do’ dives sites.

Getting up close and personal with endangered grey nurse sharks is very achievable as they cruise back and forth along the sandy channel of the entrance of the cave. The longer you stay still, the closer they will come to you. The cave itself consists of a numerous horizontal and vertical turns, every pocket filled with unique and diverse marine life.

We know from personal experience, one day may not be nearly enough to truly appreciate these graceful sharks and the cave itself, therefore two days is highly recommended. All dives are guided.

Your day will consist of double dives; the sites are selected to suit the experience of divers and daily conditions. Both Fish Rock Cave and grey nurse sharks are given high priority, as these sites are the reason why divers travel from far and wide. Fish Rock Cave dive caters to all levels of diving experience with professional Dive Masters and Instructors guiding all dives.
