Marine Activities

Diving, fishing, swimming with dolphins

A marine wonderland, the Mornington Peninsula boasts over 260 kilometres of coastline and offers a treasure trove of activities for avid marine lovers or those curious and looking to explore for the first time.

A destination for family friendly bay beaches to wild, rugged ocean coastlines waiting to be surfed, the Mornington Peninsula is home to over 500 species of fish, and approximately 1000 marine plant species.  Our southern shore marine environments offer superior aquatic habitats - where marine life from the cooler waters of western Victoria meet and mix with the warm water species from eastern Australia, beautiful rocky reefs, seagrass meadows, sandy plains and sponge gardens make for magical diving and snorkeling areas. You can swim with dolphins, meet cheeky Australian fur seals, or snorkel with delicate weedy sea dragons.

If you prefer to enjoy the water from above, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding  surfing, sailing, kayaking, or fishing. With so many local experts to guide your adventure, your only challenge will be deciding which one to do first. Meet the local businesses that can help shape your next getaway.
