The Navy Pier in Exmouth is rated by many world famous diving figures as one of the best pier dives on Earth. At the last count, there were at least 200 different species, including big schools of trevally, snapper and barracuda, as well as graceful firefish, angelfish, Moorish idols and large Queensland gropers. Take a closer look and you’ll also find a variety of nudibranchs, flatworms, cheeky goby fish and delicate anemones with families of clownfish.
As the pier remains a working defence facility, diving here can only be conducted with a licenced dive shop, and numbers are limited to protect the site. With a maximum depth of around 15 metres, it’s ideal for novice divers.
