Tours begin with your friendly and highly experienced guide preparing you for the guided dive with information on the marine life you can expect to encounter, plus getting you kitted up with any hire gear (BCD, regulator, wetsuit, cylinder and/or weight belt) you may need.

Then you'll travel to Flinders Pier which is the easiest place in the world to find these iconic marine creatures. There are dozens of them here and during the right season, you might see the males carrying eggs around.
