Welcome to the Dive The HMAS Adelaide website
We have been waiting for such a long time now and Pro-Dive Central Coast proudly introduces you to the former warship- HMAS Adelaide.
Finally, NSW has its very own former naval warship scuttled close to one of the Central Coasts most popular tourist destinations, creating an awesome artificial reef that will create a diving arena to rival any other.
There could not have been selected a better location for scuttling her; The Central Coast of NSW has so much to offer both the visiting diver and non-diving family members too.
Best of all, we are just a short drive on the freeway from both Sydney and Newcastle. It is so easy to come to the coast just for the day, or stay an entire weekend.
Whilst you are diving, your family members can visit the popular shopping area right across from the pristine beach or join onto an adventure with one of the many Central Coast adventure operators.
Pro Dive Central Coast are the experts when it comes to diving the HMAS Adelaide. Diving the wreck multiple times a day, every day (weather permitting), they have the knowledge and experience to make your diving experiences on the Adelaide a memorable occasion.
With pickup from the Haven at Terrigal and a short 5 minute boat ride around to the wreck site. Pro-Dive have an exclusive mooring above the wreck.
After listening to an interesting and thorough pre-dive briefing you will be diving into the water in no time.
We have added a lot of information about the history of the HMAS Adelaide, images both before and after she was scuttled. Check out the videos, they are great videos to watch.
If you have questions, Call Bob and his crew from Pro Dive Central Coast the service is both professional and informative.
One of the truly unique aspects of this scuttled wreck, is that she sits in shallow enough water so that divers of all experience levels, can dive and enjoy her, even open water divers can still dive the super structure and get to sit in the captains chair, a "must do" when diving the HMAS Adelaide.
Divers want to know how deep is the Adelaide?
What are the depths I can dive to and how deep is the deepest part?
The Adelaide sits on a sand bed at 35 metres- bolt upright. No list or lean to either side.
Your first contact with the Adelaide will be the top mast at 12 metres, diving down to the 02 deck at 22 metres. The bow is at 25 metres, 1 deck or Main deck and flight deck are at 29 metres and the keel is sitting at 39 metres, in the sand. The inner most deepest depth is 38 metres.

We hope to see you on the boat soon!
