: You can get in to the water by a giant stride from the stern then swim to the bow. An alternative entry is via the Tanks. For shore dives and snorkeling, it's about a 150meter swim from the shore.
The Bait Grounds are a beautiful dive, close to home and accessible for all types of diving whether it be boat diving, shore diving, or snorkeling for all our non-divers out there. Situated in average 9 meters of water, The Bait Grounds is a reef that extends about 75 meters along and 20 meters wide. The kelp covered reef is home to an amazing array of sea life including Red Line Cleaner Shrimp that hide in the small undercuts on the south side of the reef, Morey eels by the hundreds, Wobbygong sharks that sleep in amongst the kelp, massive schools of baitfish (hence the name "The Bait Grounds") and the odd Grey Nurse Sharks just to name a few. Along the Southern side of the reef, about half way up, there is a beautiful big sponge which in certain times of the year, is home to the Southern Rock Lobster. A dive everyone should give a go!
