There are several dive sites in this area, catering for all levels of diving. Some of the well known sites include two wrecks, the SS Satara at 42 metres and the SS Catterthun at 60 metres. Both of these sites are serious dives and need considerable preparation. Big and Little Seal Rocks, and the Saw Tooth are more accommodating to divers with varying interests. For a great shore dive try Poo Rock just to the right of the beach. A dive at Big Seal Rock, when the grey nurse sharks are in, is an unforgettable experience. Descending the rock wall, you will come upon a wide gutter at 21 m, which has a small cave cutting into the rock face. Usually schools of kingfish, drummer and trevally circle the gutter, while turtles, wobbegongs, stingrays and Port Jackson sharks can be seen resting on the bottom. Hazards include rips and sharks.
The immediate vicinity of Seal Rocks offers clear bays for swimming, snorkelling, boating and fishing.
