Marine Wonderland – water activities & adventures.
Mornington Peninsula promises an abundance of activities for both avid marine lovers or those curious and looking to explore an aquatic wonderland for the first time.
A destination for family-friendly bay beaches and wild rugged ocean coastlines waiting to be surfed, the Mornington Peninsula is home to many species of fish, and a multitude of marine plant species. Our southern shore marine environments offer superior oceanic habitats – a place where marine life from the cooler waters of western Victoria meet the warm water species from eastern Australia. Beautiful rocky reefs, seagrass meadows, sandy plains and sponge gardens make for magical diving and snorkelling stretches. Swim with dolphins, meet cheeky Australian fur seals, or snorkel with delicate weedy sea dragons.
If experiencing water from above is more your inclination, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding to witness the wonders from an aerial view, while keeping fit at the same time. Perhaps you want to add surfing, sailing, kayaking, or fishing to your skillset - with so many local experts to guide your adventures, your only challenge will be deciding which one to do first. Meet the local businesses that can help shape your next adventure on (or under!) the water of the Mornington Peninsula.
