Bald Rock Dive Site

The Keppels,

Bald Rock is located at the eastern end of Great Keppel Island, off Yeppoon, and is a great spot for smaller marine life. The rocky reef around Bald Rock varies in depth from 6 metres to 15 metres, and divers will find plenty of gutters, ledges and small caves to explore.

This site has a good coverage of hard corals, but divers will also see pretty gorgonians, spikey soft corals and sponges. While larger species like wobbegongs, stingrays and batfish can be seen, Bald Rock is a good spot to look for smaller critters. Nudibranchs are common, including large Spanish dancers. These colourful sea slugs come in such a wide variety of colours that they provide endless opportunities to underwater photographers. Also look out for flatworms, cuttlefish, octopus, pipefish, boxfish, crabs, shrimps, scorpionfish, lionfish and hawkfish.
