Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Shelly Beach, Cabbage Tree Bay Reserve

Location: Manly, Sydney

Description: Shore dive

Depth: 8 metres (26 feet)

Visibility: 10 - 15 metres (33 - 49 feet)

Rating: ***

This dive area can be explored as a shore dive, accessed from Shelly beach, Shelly harbour in Manly.

This is a good place for training and carrying out skills, also for general navigation training etc. The currents and swells are moderate, with average shore diving visibility. There is plenty of life to be found including Octopus, Sea dragons, Wobbegong sharks, Rays and Groupers. This site can also be a good night dive location, with life to be found under the rocky shoreline.
