South Australia is world famous as a diving destination because of it’s marine emblem: The Leafy Sea Dragon. The term Leafy Sea Dragon is derived from it’s magical appearance, that serves as perfect camouflage in it’s natural habitat. They are larger than most sea horses, growing to about 20 – 30 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 maximum of 3-4 per encounter.

  • A professional guide who knows the local leafy hangout
  • Guided tour at one of our leafy sites
