“Leap” of Faith!

There’s an awesome Dive Site called the “Leap to Steps,” found in Kurnell, Sydney. The “Leap” in Leap to Steps, comes from a platform you can leap off to commence your dive (dive conditions dependent, of course). Whilst carefully walking onto this platform with your dive gear to make that Leap of Faith, ensure your fins are on securely and that you hold onto your mask and regulator whilst taking that leap of faith, otherwise, you’ll regret it! Also, ensure that you leap out far enough that you don’t hit your head on anything: you don’t want that to happen.

The “Steps” in The Leap to Steps is named after the steps you have to climb back up on, once you complete your one-way dive.

The Leap to the Steps hosts an abundant variety of marine creatures, both great and small, including, but certainly not limited to: Turtles, Rays, Dolphins, Sharks, Whales, Nudibranchs, Anglerfish, Sea Spiders and Pygmy Pipehorses. The Leap to the Steps is also home to Sydney’s Spectacular Weedy Seadragon. Pictured below, is a photo of a male Weedy Seadragon, carrying eggs on it’s tail.

The Leap to the Steps is a much loved dive site found within the treasures of Kamay Botany Bay National Park. The heritage-listed site is an important place in Australia’s history.
