Most people who travel to Australia for the diving will go to the Great Barrier Reef. Those who are in WA will likely go to Exmouth. Coral Bay therefore is less traveled and quieter. The options for diving might be less developed, but therefore they are also more pristine.

If the weather is cooperative, you can dive outside the reef wall, but if the winds/currents are too strong, the dives will be inside the wall. Depths are between 7~15m (20~45ft). There are plenty of healthy corals, schools of fish and the occasional manta rays.

Equipment: There is one dive shop in Coral Bay. You can bring your own gear if you have it, or hire it as needed. Costs are a bit expensive, but worth it. A 1 day, 2-tank dive was $145 Aus.

Directions: The one dive shop in Coral Bay is in the Coral Bay Arcade shopping, next to the Backpacker's Club.
