Diving in Perth, December

Hello. I am torn between diving in Perth or making the trek up to Exmouth this coming December. I will be visiting family for Christmas, and in the meanwhile doing some research regarding the best places to dive.

Will I be able to see much off of Rottnest Island? Or is should I head to Exmouth even though there are no whale sharks or manta rays during December?

Any suggestions for a dive trip in WA?

Thanks in advance.

Rottnest is not a bad dive site if you are local anyway. I guess it depends on how much time you have - probably over 26hrs driving going from Perth to Exmouth and back (obviously much easier if you fly). If you have the time Exmouth and the Nigaloo Reef will have much more to offer than anything you find off Perth! (in my opinion) :)

Thanks André! I will keep this in mind. Do you have any suggestions for dive companies or perhaps can you recommend a specific place in Exmouth? I will only have two or three days so I want to hit the right places!

Hi Lisa - it has been a few years since I was there but I think I dived with Exmouth Dive center. I would try and dive Ningaloo Reef and Murion if you have time.

Joregen Dencker: Hello. I going to Australia November/December and have exactly the same challenge: should I stay in Perth region diving Rottnes Island and the vicinity or going to Exmouth coral diving. I have heard that it's cyclone season up north so maybe it's not worth going up there. I'm wating for response from some diving companies.
