A very underrated jetty. Fish life is prolific. There are nudibranchs galore and this is a macro photographers paradise.

You can always find plenty of pipefish near the start in the seagrass, with angler fish and blue rings making an appearance as well.

Towards the end of Port Hughes Jetty, there is a lot of snow coral on the pylons and structure, making it a very pretty dive.


Access is via the Jetty. There are stairs halfway down and a tall ladder at the end. One possible dive plan is to enter in via the ladder & exit out via the stairs.

While beach entry is also possible, be aware it is quite rocky.

    Awesome Sunday dive at Pt Hughes on the way back from the dive trip. Lots of Veronicas out and about, as well as a few angler fish! Enzo got a little too close to one of the critters....
