The seadragon camouflage is quite good and they do resemble seaweed floating on the bottom of the seafloor. Unless you know what you are looking for seadragons can be easily overlooked. Once you have found a few seadragons it becomes easier to spot them. As part of the seadragon dive, we train you how to spot them and teach you a little about these unique creatures.

We offer two options for diving with seadragons:

  1. At the moment we have a number of Free Seadragon specific dives planned, see the list below
  2. We also off private guided at a premium of $225 for the day, you choose the day and we organize the diving.
