Jew Shoal is located in Noosa’s pristine Laguna Bay and is reachable by boat in just 20 minutes. The site itself is a large complex of canyons, ridges and bommies, with two main features:
The caves consist of several large swim throughs which are a buzz with marine life. Its gutters are covered in colourful hard and soft corals. Expect to see reef fish including angelfish, butterflyfish, surgeonfish, globefish, rabbitfish, soapfish, morwong, sweetlip and bream – as you meander through the caves.
The Pinnacle starts at seven metres depth dropping down to 16m as you descend. There are plenty of ledges, walls, and crevices to explore. The coral gardens here are home to an array of marine invertebrates - sea stars, feather stars, hermit crabs, urchins, cowries and over 100 varieties of nudibranchs. Seasonal mantas and grey nurse sharks even turn up from time to time.
Both main sites feature fantastic coral layouts to go and explore for divers of all skill levels.
"We went on a beautiful Sunday to the Reef off Noosa. Absolutely stunning what we saw. The reef was full with colourful fishes... Definitely recommend all the dive trips these guys are doing."
