Whyalla Cuttlefish

Weekend 2-5 July 2021

Location:
The site is along the fenceline next to the refinery and the action starts from the moment you step into the water.

Dive Description:
Whyalla is located 396 km northwest of Adelaide on Spencer Gulf. The city is the largest in the Upper Gulf region. It was founded in 1901 as the town of Hummock Hill and later renamed Whyalla in 1914. It was established as the port to ship iron ore from the nearby Middleback Ranges. Every year between May and August thousands of Giant Cuttlefish (Sepia Apama) descend on the rocky coastline between Fitzgerald Bay and False Bay near Whyalla. These amazing chameleons of the sea are one of the largest species of cuttlefish and can reach up to 60 cm in length and can weigh up to 5 kg. The water is cold but well worth the effort.

Hazards:
The rocks at the end of the pathway as you enter the water can be slippery so take care. The water temperature is around 10-12 degrees.

Bookings essential.
