Join Feet First Dive and dive the beautiful, warm waters of Nelson Bay, Port Stephens. With a huge variety of stunning diving and snorkeling options from boat or shore, the outfit offers sites to suit all needs. You can venture out on our Double Boat Dives to Broughton Island’s grey nurse shark colony, dive the famous Looking Glass Isle, explore historic wrecks, and experience regular sightings of seals, dolphins, (seasonal) whales, and turtles, to create a trip you’ll never forget.
The exceptional shore dives in Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park offer the security of safer sites (less boat traffic), with ocean encounters like no other. Meet friendly blue groupers, watch schooling fish, study dwarf ornate wobbegongs, awe at pelagics swimming by, or simply grab your camera and lose yourself in the macro world. With over 200 species of nudibranchs, anglerfish, a high concentration of White’s seahorses, thorny cowfish, and yellow boxfish, your camera just won’t stop clicking.

The best operators, ever. Enthusiastic, fun and very, very professional at a reasonable price. Feet First is a great example of how to run a dive business more »
Just completed my PADI OW refresher course with FFD after around 20 years of no diving. All staff were professional and incredibly patient and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 shore dives included in the course and have immediately booked on to do some more dives.
Open water course with Trudy was awesome! Clear instructions, great knowledge and very patient! Had an awesome time, The shop is well stocked with a great range of gear. The hire gear is of a good quality and will be diving the amazing dive sites that port Stephens has to offer more regularly! Thanks to the staff for experience!
