This was a great dive!!! First of all, you must go to the store to register for the dive. Then you will be picked up the morning of the dive at one of the docks by a boat. The staff was very professional and had all the equipment that I needed for a dive. The water was cold, approximately 50 degrees F. Keep in mind that Sydney has their winter at this time of the year. We wore 5mm wet suits provided by the company. The dive masters were great and gave an excellent dive. I found Sydney to be a great dive spot, one of the best I've been to. We saw a bunch of sea life, including a Port Jackson shark and a huge ray.
The two dive sites were Bluefish Wall and Bluefish Point. The price for a two-tank dive, equipment, and some soup was about US$125, which is a decent rate in such an expensive city.
