A faint torchlight has led police to a scuba diver in distress off the Adelaide coast.

The 45-year-old woman was among a group involved in a night dive at Port Noarlunga late on Monday when a strong current swept her out to sea.

Her torch was spotted about one kilometre off the coast and she was picked up by the Sea Rescue squadron.

She was treated for fatigue but had no other injuries, police said.
