Enjoy the Leafy Sea Dragon Tour with The Dive Shack
and explore one of the best spots in the world to see this amazing creature!
South Australia is world famous as a diving destination because of it’s marine emblem: The Leafy Sea Dragon. The name of the Leafy Sea Dragon is derived from it’s magical appearance, that serves as perfect camouflage in it’s natural habitat, the southern coasts of Australia. They are larger than most sea horses, growing to about 20 – 24 cm (8 – 10 inch) and feed on plankton and small crustaceans. These peaceful animals are easily stressed so remember to be careful to maintain neutral buoyancy, equipment streamlined and gentle kicks under the water. If you’re a photographer it is recommended to keep flash shots to a minimum of 3-4 per encounter.
