Looking for new places to dive? Check out Kangaroo Island Dive and Adventures, a five star Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) dive centre that offers guided shore based and boat based SCUBA diving experiences. Some dives occur in the remote, wild north coast of Kangaroo Island – home to some of the world’s best temperate water diving. Guests are picked up from Western River Cove and transported to the dive sites where they have the opportunity to get up close to Australian Sea Lions and New Zealand Fur Seals. Between dives, participants can enjoy lunch while watching the Wedge Tail Eagles spiral lazily above the 100 metre cliff that forms the back drop to your experience. Sounds good?
