White sandy beaches, tranquil waters, a healthy marine ecosystem. Jervis Bay is the perfect getaway! Jervis Bay is a large, safe harbour, protected by the towering stone cliffs on the seaside that sink deep into the ocean. This part of the coastline is close to the continental shelf, with clear water coming up from the deep ocean. Visibility at Jervis Bay averages at around 15 to 20 meters throughout the year.
There is a permanent breeding seal colony here with groups to the north and south of the heads. Whales regularly stop in to rest here as they move up and down the coast, and there are multiple marine sanctuary’s and a vast national park in the area to support the abundant marine life.
Because of the shape of the bay and headlands, you can dive Jervis Bay in most conditions. There are sheer soft coral walls, multiple caves and swim-throughs, wrecks including planes and ships, shark nurseries, macro life and miles of rocky coastline to explore for both recreational and technical diving.
Jervis Bay is home to a vast quantity of macro life, from nudibranchs to sea spiders, Weedy Sea Dragons and pipefish which are endemic to the region. There are a number of varieties of pipefish that are endangered that are found here, there is also several sea horses such as the Eastern Big Belly. There are also vast numbers of soft corals, anemones and fans.
