Port Chalmers (Yacht club)

Produced by the Otago University Dive Club

Access: Very good, just drive up to where you want to jump in, but be sure you know where you can climb out again.

Weather / Sea conditions: Good in most weather conditions, as long as vis is okay in the harbour. Best at slack high tide, watch those tidal flows.

Visibility: Around 3 - 5 metres.

Description: The areas around the log wharf and yacht club have quite a bit of sponge life but not usually a great deal of fish life. The area is most commonly used as a backup site when weather conditions at the Mole don't allow access and you have to return to town.

Depth: Anything up to 15 metres
