Hervey Bay is well known around the world as the whale watching capital of Australia and the gateway to Fraser Island. However Hervey Bay is a less well-known destination for those who want to explore below the surface.

Diving in Hervey Bay has much to offer the enthusiast. There are plenty of interesting wrecks to explore out on the artificial reef; there are certainly plenty of fish to see, the waters are relatively calm and free of dangerous currents and everything you could want to see is only a short boat trip out into Hervey Bay.

All that makes diving Hervey Bay an enjoyable experience for new divers and more experienced divers too.
