I took the opportunity to do a mid-week dive at Port Stephens. The weather was a bit windy outside the bay, so the sensible bet was a single shore dive at Little Bay, which was tide dependent. This meant an early start, but well worth...More

Did a shore dive with Hillbilly, so much to see and such a knowledgeable and friendly team. As a fairly novice diver I was given expert instruction and felt confident and relaxed. Highly recommend even if you normally prefer boat dives, this is worth doing.
