Shag Rock - Horseshoe

Shag Rock is an exposed rocky reef only a short 6 to 8 minute boat ride from the beach our Dive boats are launched from. Because of this it is the most protected dive site and offers great diving when conditions elsewhere take a turn for the worse.

Both sides of the reef offer great dive sites and are linked by a spectacular swim through cave, providing an exciting challenge for all levels of diver.
