Shag Rock - Horseshoe

Shag Rock is an exposed rocky reef located just a short 6 to 8 minute boat ride from the beach where our Dive boats are launched. This dive site is highly protected, making it ideal for diving even when conditions are unfavorable elsewhere.

Both sides of the reef offer exceptional dive sites and are connected by a stunning swim through cave, providing an exhilarating challenge for divers of all skill levels. Whether you choose to explore each side separately or combine them into one dive, you'll have the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds.

While the visibility at Shag Rock may not always be as high as our other sites, it compensates with minimal or no current, offering a serene and relaxing dive for both novice and experienced divers. The diverse marine life in this area includes wobbegong and bamboo sharks, eagle and bull rays, turtles, octopus, eels, nudibranchs, stonefish, sea urchins, and a wide variety of hard and soft corals, as well as countless tropical fish species. If you visit during their respective seasons, you may even spot leopard sharks, manta rays, and grey nurse sharks passing by.

Located in Point Lookout, Redland City, Queensland, Australia, Shag Rock provides a fantastic diving experience for beginners and those looking for a memorable underwater adventure. With a maximum depth of 14m and visibility of 11m, this dive site offers the perfect setting to explore the vibrant underwater world.
