Our dive spots are chosen to give you a broad range of diving experiences. Dive off jetties, boats, beaches, explore rock formations, the remains of ship wrecks and pristine reefs. Hopefully spot some world famous Leafy Seadragons, seahorses, pipefish, cuttlefish, pyjama squid, blue ringed octopus, frog fish, angler fish, sting rays, bull rays, Port Jackson sharks and even the occasional seal or dolphin.

Dive the Shipwreck Coast on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsular. Experience the world class diving at Edithburgh to see blue ringed octopus, pyjama squid, sea horses, nudibranchs then travel onto Stenhouse Bay on the Ship Wreck Coast in search of shipwrecks.
We will have a day in the wildly remote Innes National Park with stunning coastal scenery and isolated beaches, or take short hikes to lighthouses, cliffs and swimming spots.
After which we will travel to the northern Yorke Peninsula and the Copper Coast to dive amongst the blue swimmer crabs and the enormous nudibranchs. We will take another dive to hunt for abalone and sea scollops which we can collect and cook for dinner (subject to regulations). There is also an opportunity to have a night dive if you are keen.
Diving the Yorke also gives us great opportunities to stay at some great accommodation where you will feel like you are the only person around. There is are plenty of opportunities to eat local seafood, relax at micro breweries (the Yorke is the centre for quality beer barley in Australia) and chill at a distillery that produces gin, vodka and whiskey from the paddocks next to the distillery. Sample the local drinks while looking out at a view as big as the horizon.
In there winter months we will head to the Upper Spencer Gulf to watch the incredible migration and mating of giant squid. Outside of the migration season we will spend a couple of nights in the picturesque Clare Valley sampling the fine wines and foods. The Clare is famous for its Riesling wines but grows many other varietals. You can bike ride through the vineyard lined valley on an old rail trail stopping off at wineries as you go.

We will provided transfers to all activities and destinations on the itinerary. If you have any special requests we will work to incorporate them wherever possible.
Within the itinerary we may change the order of dives and activities to take advantage of local marine activities or in response to weather and sea conditions.
