Diving report

Diving report - Lady Elliott to Byron Bay

These dive reports are the latest information available from dive charter operators between Lady Elliot Island and Byron Bay. Over time we will expand our information sources and provide dive reports for the whole Queensland coast. Experienced divers will be aware that visibility and water temperature can change at any time, due to ocean currents or changing weather conditions and sea state, so although these reports are given to us in good faith, there is no guarantee that dive conditions will remain the same. However, it is a good guide to what’s been happening and does put you in touch with dive operators who you can call for more specific information about the dive sites in the reports.

Our featured diving videos from the Coastwatch vault were all shot and produced by award winning cameraman/producer Clint Hempsall and are probably the most comprehensive video record of Queensland dive sites and the creatures that live on or around them. So keep checking them as they will change each week and are a great opportunity to tap into the timeless knowledge contained in them.
