Exmouth Navy Pier, Western Australia

Post Number:#1  Postby nanda666 » Tue Jul 09, 2013 2:06 pm

Western Australia has some of the best dive sites in the world but they are just really far from anywhere.....and pretty expensive to get to.

I was heading offshore to an FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) facility so decided to take a day off on my way back and get some diving done.

Did 2 amazing dives along a jetty that about 50m long (So the dive is just going up and down this jetty) and all what you see below is from that 2 dives ONLY!

looks cool and definitely looks like lots of discovery to be made there.

Can roughly know how much you pay for the dive there?

I have a trip coming up to Adelaide, thought of doing a few dive there as well.

2 dives cost AUD$220 for the Navy Pier. Most places have the same pricing of about AUD$100 per dive. The rates get a little better if you take a bigger package of 5+ dives but not by much.

Thanks nanda for your info.. hopefully can do a few dive down under..

Yes Narco.. im looking at cage diving with the Great White.. lol... hopefully I can do that there.. but it seems like the Cage diving is located 600km away from Adelaide (JB to Penang)..
Great white diving is about AUD$400+ and no guarantee of shark sighting.. will be quite a bummer if went and no shark..

reztitan, that is about RM1200 for a cage dive! But I know you are rich enough to enjoy the luxury of doing cage diving even without the presence of a Great White.. hehe..

Nanda, lots of weird stuff u got there. When u showed it to me on ur phone, it is not so obvious. But over here, wow! the details of it mesmerize me. Well done bro.

waaaa narco u turun aussie. Dive or not?

if it was me, i take my chances and just dive cage diving. I actually afraid of sharks. Even the sharks at sipadan. i reckon they the same as dogs. They can sniff people/divers who are afraid of them :D
Fuh i ever get the chance to dive in Australia, i want to dive in cage of coz. Dive and play with the seal (like in tony wu blog..jealous!), dive under the jetty, see the dragon.

Yeah.. Im looking at swimming with sea lion and cage diving with great white.. would be an experience of a life time definitely Im sure..

From what I heard.. Only in South Africa some operators guarantee great white sighting and even dare to guarantee it to ramp your cage, not sure how true is that..

Semua orang mau dive Australia, tapi itu air banyak sejuk..
(Everybody wanna dive Australia, but the water is very the cold).. hehe

Yep Run, I was in Perth. Met our fellow Nanda and he shared with us some of his underwater 'intimate' picture. Well, too bad i did not manage to squeeze a dive. According to Nanda, the water is too cold. For that, i decided to leave my reg and just walk a lonely journey to Perth accompanied by my C Card (hopes up high still though). Only manage to be in Freemantle.
