There are many different types of sea life in the ocean at the Rockingham Wreck Trail which goes down to around about 24 metres in depth so you can see a variety of sea life such as:
· Flathead fish
All different types of fish I could go on forever, there could also even be sharks I`ve never seen one myself but I`ve been told by other divers they have seen them.
Rockingham Wreck Trail
There are many things to see in the ocean at Rockingham. There are many different types of sea life. There are different wrecks such as planes that are called (King Beech) which is the bigger plane and (Cessna) which is the smaller plane, boats (Old Timer) and (Bony). A cage which everyone calls the (chicken coop), also is a tyre reef which isn’t much to look at but lots of different types of fish swim around it.

Where to get a Diving Ticket
You can get your Diving Ticket from a Scuba Diving shop that advertises that they do the course that you have to take to get it. The course itself doesn’t take too long as I did it in two days for two weeks but that was only because I worked and didn’t have time to do it in the four days straight. There are four different test you need to do such as:
· Fitness & treading water for a certain amount of minutes.
· Breathing and swimming around in a pool for 30-40 minutes.
· How to get yourself ready and do a buddy check.
· A little book work, nothing hard just how to work out how long you should wait to fly or go back down into the depth of the ocean after you dive.
At the end of all that they take you out on a boat and take you to Rottnest on a boat and you get to do a boat dive. If that’s provided in the course, as it was for mine, then you go diving and exploring the reef. It’s a whole day event and really amazing what you see and at the end of all that you go back to the Dive Shop and you get your Diving Licence.
