Diving Admiralty Islands

Ranked highly as among the country’s best dive sites, the Admiralty Islands are a fascinating group of volcanic formations - home to impressive pinnacles, coral reefs and teaming with schooling fish. Capella guests can set out and explore the islets on a round island boat tour, or en route to Ball’s Pyramid - another first-class dive site. Dive depths of 15-40m are typical of this spot - tides and conditions permitting.  
 
The cluster of islands, known as Noddy Island, Rupert’s Reef, Sugarloaf Island and Tenth of June Bombora can be viewed from Kim's Lookout and from Ned's Beach on the eastern side of Lord Howe Island.
