Meet The Locals ~ Every diving area has its favourites and so does South Australia, and we’re not just talking about the marine life ;).

South Australia has heaps of spectacular shore and boat dives, but the best local marine life can be found under our beautiful jetties! Dragons (both the weedy and leafy kind), sea lions, pyjama squid, seahorses, bobtail squid, the giant Australian cuttlefish, blue ring octopus and lots of different angler fish are only a few of our local favourites!



The main drawcard in our South Australian waters are our dragons. Most common in our waters is the leafy sea dragon, but we regularly spot both weedy and leafy sea dragons at our two world famous dragon dive sites: Rapid Bay Jetty and The Bluff. Join our experienced professionals on a trip down south to find and photograph these graceful creatures.

Oftentimes called the puppies of the sea, the Australian sea lion is the most playful creature you will encounter in our waters! They will follow you around, nibble on your fins and play with your bubbles! With a bit of luck you can encounter them at many of our local dive sites here in SA and when you do, it will be a great experience you won’t soon forget.
