The many bays around Bremer Bay offer shelter in different conditions making it possible most of the time to go diving. The granite and limestone reefs offer habitats for a range of temperate marine life including Blue Groupers, Kingfish, Snapper, Australian Salmon and Seadragons (both Leafy and Weedy!). Surprisingly, a few hard and soft coral can be found here too. If you are lucky you can dive/snorkel with the Sea Lions. Depth ranges from 10 ?¢¬Ä¬ì 25 meters.
