Dive Charters

To see the best diving around the Solitary Islands Marine Park, you must venture offshore to the Solitary Islands themselves. You will be amazed by the variety of marine life and see a mixture of fish from the tropics and subtropical varieties as well. The water is usually clean and warm because of the East Australian Current. The South Solitary Islands are 20 minutes travelling time on the fast boats, so comfort is important, and size counts.

Whale Watching

Jetty Dive Centre offers Adventure Whale Watching aboard their fast boat "Wildfin" on a daily basis from Coffs Harbour, on New South Wales' North Coast. The fast boat ride out means they usually see whales only minutes after leaving the harbour. If they see whales in the distance jumping, they can move from one group to another in a very short time, and not miss any action. The one and a half hour trip is mostly spent watching whales, not getting there. It is not just a Whale Watch trip, it is a fun Adventure boat ride too! The Whale Watch trips from Coffs Harbour operate daily from June to October, in the beautiful waters of the Solitary Islands Marine Park. The Solitary Islands Marine Park is minutes away from Coffs Harbour, and located mid way between Sydney and Brisbane.
