I’ve done two PADI certificates with Jetty Dive now and can’t wait to go back. They are so knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The Solitary Islands are fantastic dive sites - so much marine life and coral.

We went for a boat dive to South Solitary Island. The trip was very organised, and the staff were friendly and efficient. The location was great and we are keen to come back for more diving in this unique area!
