More about Kelp Forest and

Kelp Forest Dive - One of our more popular kelp forest sites is at Pyramid Rock. The maximum depth is only 12 metres making it ideal for beginner and junior divers to join. The shallow depths and picturesque environment make this is the ideal environment for photographers aiming to capture these fun Cape Fur Seals.

Look out for the Spotted Gully sharks, which attain 1.7 metres in length. This is a timid shark more easily approached by freedivers than SCUBA divers. Then there are several species of catshark: the Pyjama catshark, Puffadder Shyshark, Leopard shy shark and Dark shy shark. These smaller sharks are between 50cm and 1.2 metres in length. The huge Short-tailed rays can occasionally be spotted. These rays grow up to 2 metres across the disk.
