Ball's Pyramid Dive Sites
Dive the world famous Ball's Pyramid with Pro Dive Lord Howe Island.
Lord Howe Islands Premier dive site is Ball's Pyramid. A must for all experienced divers.
Ball's Pyramid is located 20km to the south of Lord Howe Island and provides world class diving and species endemic to the region. Travel time is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. When diving Ball's Pyramid and its neighbouring sites you can expect to see massive schools of Violet Sweep, Amberjack, Kingfish, Silver Drummer, Ballina Angelfish, Rainbow Runners, Trevally and occasionally Marlin, Dolphins and Wahoo. The dive sites average 25 meters in depth and range from drift dives, cave dives or simply following a coral wall. The Pyramid itself is located in a marine sanctuary zone which maintains the pristine aquatic environment. You can often expect to see walls of fish from the surface down to 25 metres. One of the highlights of diving Balls Pyramid is to see the Ballina Angelfish, a deep water Angel that is generally only found in water in excess of 100 metres. Ball's Pyramid is believed to be the only destination where you can see them on recreational scuba in 25 metres. A truly amazing dive.
Ball’s Pyramid trips are not scheduled weekly, once we have divers interested in going down we check the weather forecast and make a decision based on the day with the best conditions. The fee is $280 per person for a double dive. All divers must have adequate experience to dive at these sites.
If you book a dive package you are able to upgrade your package once on the Island to include Balls Pyramid should the conditions be possible. Divers with pre booked packages diving with Pro Dive Lord Howe Island will always take priority for this trip.
