Dive Centre Bondi

Another diving day – one that we have been looking forward to for the entire trip! We travel to Bondi Beach to dive with sharks!!

Our first dive of the day has wobegones (a type of shark that will rip your arm off – something I didn’t know at the time), grouper, and nudibranches.

The second dive is the one we’ve been waiting for – sharks – these guys live in a cave about 45 feet down and sleep during the day. We were their wake up call. There were 6 or 7 big nurse sharks that looked really scary – however this type of shark doesn’t want to eat humans – but were very timid & wished we would leave.

We continued on with the dive, after Andrew got a few photos, to see another wobegone, a cuttlefish and a grouper that decided he would be our escort. He decided to make his film debut & posed for a few shots.

Dive Bondi was great & our guide, Dan, was fantastic & excited to dive with Canadians with cold-water experience. He finished off 2 open water divers on their course with us. Can you imagine one of your qualifying dives being with sharks!!! AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!

I highly recommend this establishment -- they pulled it together for us with little notice & were very accommodating.

The boat was a new one to the shop - the captain provided us with soup, crackers, tea, and cookies between dives. I love that Aussie hospitality!! They're so much like us Canadians!!
