Please note that we are unable to transport gear from our shop to the dive location. If you have not dived in Victoria in the last 12 months, we will do an orientation dive with you on the first dive.
Victoria’s underwater world plays host to a huge variety of sea creatures and sites that are impressive, though not widely known. Local sightings include Weedy Seadragons, Blue Ring Octopus, Giant Smoothrays, Seahorses, Spider Crabs, Cuttlefish, over 150 species of nudibranchs, Seals and many more! Check out our gallery for more pictures.
In addition, Victoria is also home to 4 WW1 Submarines that are dived frequently, as well as over 100 wrecks and one of the most beautiful wall systems in Australia, the Lonsdale Wall. Moreover, the colours we have here truly eclipse the Great Barrier Reef, and the amazing animal migrations, such as the Spider Crab Migration in June / July make Melbourne one of the secret underwater wonders of the world. Perhaps you saw BBC’s Blue Planet II with Weedy Sea Dragons and Spider Crabs? Yes, that was filmed right here, in Port Phillip Bay!
Your mind will be blown when you see the amazing marine life that calls Melbourne waters home. Come diving with us and find out for yourself today!
