Taking an Australia cruise? You must visit these beautiful dive sites
Diving enthusiasts from all around the world come to Australia to explore its beautiful reefs. If you find yourself on a cruise around Australia, you may want to learn how to dive and take advantage of your gorgeous surroundings.
Here are our suggestions for the best diving spots in Australia:
Lord Howe Island – Situated at the crossroads of five major ocean currents, Lord Howe Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a view that you will never forget. Temperate, tropical and sub-tropical species of sea life all converge in this area, giving divers the opportunities to see very diverse animals all in one place.
Ningaloo Reef – The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s best-known attractions, but one has to travel for more than an hour on the ocean to see it. Ningaloo, the country’s second-greatest coral reef, starts just a few feet away from shore. While you dive here, you will have the opportunity to see more than 300 species of coral and 700 species of reef fish.
Rottnest Island – The name may sound a bit unappealing, but this former prison island located just 12 miles from Perth is a popular destination. Under the water, you’ll see very interesting items like shipwreck ruins and limestone overhangs. This area is very visitor-friendly and provides swimmers with a map of popular snorkel trails.
