Flagstaff – Swansea Heads
Flagstaff is a great shore dive only 5 minutes drive from the dive shop. A shallow dive ranging in depth from 5 metres to 8 metres, Flagstaff suits all ranges of divers! The dive site ranges in bottom topography from sandy areas where the rays like to hang to green/yellow weedy sea gardens where the fish and nudibranch like to hide. That mixed with backdrop of giant boulders make for a beautiful dive! Other critters that have spotted on this site are port jackson shark, spotted rays, schools of mullet, king fish and Australian salmon!
Over the winter period when the water is beautifully clear, it is between Flagstaff and Moon Island that we are lucky enough to get visits from the Grey Nurse Sharks. It’s a great time to dive Swansea!
