How many moorings are available?
Six moorings are located at the dive site:
How much are Permits?
Permits are priced at $18 per diver, per day.
How much is a mooring booking?
Mooring bookings are for 2hr timeslots. Timeslots have been set to allow a safe and comfortable diving experience. Mooring fees are as follows:
$80 for a 2-hour timeslot for casual commercial operators
$60 for a 2-hour timeslot for club and private bookings
These fees will be implemented on an introductory basis and reviewed after 6 months operation.
To avoid congestion in the water, there is a maximum of 14 divers allowed per mooring at any one time.
How much would an entire dive cost, including permit and mooring?
Prices for entire dive experiences will vary depending on whether you arrange your dive through a commercial dive operator, public or club booking. Extra costs may apply depending on whether you have your own diving equipment or are hiring equipment.
The cost of a single dive with own equipment supplied will likely cost from $80 and upwards. Divers will need to contact commercial dive operators for quotations on diving packages to suit their specific needs.
