Three scuba divers have been pulled to safety from the water south of Boat Beach at Seal Rocks after getting into difficulties.

Two women were winched from the water by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter after a male managed to get out of the water and raise the alarm early this afternoon, Thursday, October 12.

The paramedic rescue crewman was winched into the water to retrieve all three back into the aircraft.

According to a Westpac Rescue Helicopter spokesman, all  three divers were transported back to Number 1 Beach to awaiting emergency services and appeared to not be injured.
