Up Close and Personal With Weedy Seadragons

Come to the Weedy Seadragon Capital of the World! For those wishing to see the rare, unique and beautiful Weedy Seadragons in their natural habitat, this Scuba Doctor Guided Dive is for you. 


The Fun Part

You'll be doing an open water dive in the pristine waters of one of the Mornington Peninsula’s incredible shore sites to search find and find the incredible Weedy Seadragons! Bring your camera and spend time in water up close and personal with the Weedy Seadragons and take a lifetime of memories with you – this tour is by far our most popular tour! During the right season, you might even see the males carrying eggs (Typically Summer Season – October to February).


The Weedy Seadragon Experience is for divers of all levels, designed to assist you with applying what you know about Scuba Diving to the local environment via an exciting, relaxed and incredible dive with the dragons.

The Seadragon Experience guided dive is particularly beneficial if you:
•    Are travelling to the Mornington Peninsula to see specific aquatic animals including Weedy Seadragons.
•    Are an underwater photographer.
•    Are a new diver to our area


What Separates Us

The Scuba Doctor Dive Shop has been host to many world class film crews - including the BBC Natural History Film Unit for three weeks in January 2016 while they shot footage of Weedy Sea Dragons for episode 5 'Green Seas' of the documentary Blue Planet II, so we know where and how to find these amazing marine creatures .

Our dive professionals have grown up diving the Mornington Peninsula’s dive sites for many years and are regular divers, both professionally and recreationally. They have a wealth of knowledge on the sites and know where to go to maximise chances of finding those animals you really want to see.

Our staff are all experienced underwater photographers, so know how to and are able to assist you set up for those incredible once in a lifetime shots. We are also always happy to help with camera and photography related questions to ensure that you are ready to fire off those shots underwater. We find that if you are wanting those incredible shots that a guided dive is the way to go.


Tour Numbers

Once your booking is confirmed by us, we guarantee it will run (weather permitting) even if there is just one person (you) - this means there are never any cancellations due to minimum numbers not being met.
And of course, like our courses, tours are completed in smaller groups - max 4 divers, to allow you the best, up-close, experience available.

For more information, please about the guided dive experience, please see FAQs About Melbourne Diving.

What To Expect

Tours start with meeting your Professional Guide at the shop at 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. on your selected date and normally takes approximately 4 hours to complete.

You meet at our dive shop in Rye where a friendly and highly experienced guide will prep you with any hire gear you may need for the guided dive and to conduct a briefing on the dive, including objectives, dive plan and site overview. From there you will head to the dive site and begin your incredible underwater adventure on your Seadragon Experience.

Our guides are naturals at finding Seadragons at our favorite local sites, there's a 99% chance of success for a sighting.

What If I Need Hire Gear

Everyone booking a guided dive has access to a discounted hire gear rate (hire gear can be selected through the Hire Gear Required dropdown box when booking) and includes our hire fleet of BCD, Cylinder, Regulator, SPG, Dive Computer, Weights and Wetsuit (5mm or 7mm available).
