Having observed divers entering from the shore at the Spit, I always wondered what on earth there was to see. Little did I know that the Seaway is in fact a treasure trove of marine delights. Divided into 4 main areas: South Wall (including the Sand Bypass Pipe and the Short Pipe) – the Seaway represents great marine biodiversity. On the North Wall – you’ll find schools of pelagic fish, wobbegong and whaler sharks; SouthWest Wall offers beach entry and is home to little critters. And then there’s Wave Break Island - excellent for snorkelling and learning to dive.
I must admit, I have been a little judgmental, ignoring the delights right under my nose, preferring to discover the exotic treasures of the Great Barrier, Vanuatu and Tahiti.
