There can be strong rips on the beach. The rocks are highly exposed to north east swells. Watch for surfers when entering/exiting on the beach.
Best time to dive
This site is best dived in low swells.
You can enter straight off the beach, or head out along the rocks about 200m.
There are numerous low shelves to exit on along the rocks, but be careful of the swell. The beach is the safest place to exit.
South Maroubra is a very easy dive for navigation. Remember to keep the rocks on your right as you head out and on your left on your return journey. If you get disorientated while exploring the various tumbled boulders ledges and overhangs, just head north until you hit the sand line.
Points of Interest
There is a large overhang in about 10m of water hiding up behind some boulders. There are usually large schools of bullseye under the ledge and big schools of long finned pike hanging around the outside. This overhang is about 500m out from the beach.
Tips from the pro
If you get caught in a rip swim to the side of it. Don’t waste energy trying to fight it.
