Scuba Diving Trips

Creature Features...

All divers have their own favourite marine creatures. For some, diving with sharks and huge schools of fish is the ultimate; others long to dive with manta rays; underwater photographers go on macro diving holidays to seek out seahorses, flamboyant cuttlefish and other incredible macro wonders.

Leafy / Weedy Seadragon - South Australia scuba diving trips

Whatever your dream diving encounter, one thing is certain: a little prior knowledge can improve your enjoyment of a scuba diving trip immensely.

To swim next to a huge school of hammerheads and appreciate why they school the way they do ... to understand the pulsating chromatophores on the surface of a cuttlefish as it hunts small crustaceans ... to know the results of the parrotfish crunching through mouthfuls of coral ... to see is one thing, but to understand is quite another and adds so much fascination to our dive trips.
