We went for a half day tour. We snorkelled around while the divers did their own dive tours. There were two stops around South Solitary Island and plenty of time in the water to paddle around. The visibility was great the day we went. We swam with a few turtles, saw lots of schools of fish, saw some big blue... More

Just been out on the afternoon whale watching experience with Jetty Dive. We are at the tail end of the whale watching season so I was not expecting much. Lindsay found us a large pod of dolphins and several whales but the last one we found put on the most magnificent display of breaching. Must have done 15 breaches and... More

We went out on a 2pm boat with Lindsay and Doug. It was fantastic. We had a mother and calf who did not stop showing off which was amazing! The two hours went too quickly. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Not to be missed!

Rang on the day to go out whale watching and as the weather had changed the company now had a boat going out. The small but fast rubber boat that takes up to 20 people whale watching is great, everyone gets a good view and you are down low on the water to get up close and personal if u... More

Fantastic whale watching followed by spectacular diving at South Solitary islands. We had great views of the migrating humpback whales on two trips out from Coffs Harbour. The diving at South Solitary, for cold water diving I was blown away...300+ cownose rays all swimming midwater, stalked by hammerhead sharks, grey nurse sharks, wobbegongs and lots of great marine life. Topped... More

Did my advanced open water with Jetty Dive. The staff are really professional, gear is well maintained, dive boat is custom built and south solitary islands has an array of quality sites. Manta Arch is a must dive!

Enjoyed our first time experience with Jetty Dive for an afternoon Whale Watching Cruise. Lindsay our Skipper & Doug were very friendly and made it a fun time for all on board. I would fully recommend this Cruise and will be returning next year for another fun afternoon.

Boat and crew are great, as is the dive site on South Solitary Island with the grey nurse sharks. Main issue if visiting Coffs to dive, is the availability of the boat to go diving since minimum number of 6 divers required to go out and some days get block booked out for whale watching instead. Even in the first... More

Though I was looking forward to do whale watching, I was definitely not excited thinking it might be boring, well I was very wrong. Jetty Dive and the guys made it anything but boring. They were friendly from the start, had us excited and giggling. I was traveling solo, so they were extremely kind to let me in the front... More
