Snorkelling/SCUBA Diving

Spectacular above and breathtakingly beautiful below, the park has some of the most unique underwater scenery in the world making it a must for diving and snorkelling.

The powerful swell of the Southern Ocean has created awesome sub-tidal canyons, arches, cliffs and walls lined with an amazing diversity of invertebrates and sponge gardens in which colourful seastars can be found.

There are also a number of historic shipwrecks including Victoria's worst shipping disaster - the loss of the Loch Ard in 1878.

Conditions for scuba diving vary enormously and depend very much on swell and weather conditions. Diving in these areas should only be attempted by qualified divers with extensive local knowledge or with a an experience guide.

Local dive shops and dive operators can provide opportunities to dive at the best sites and wrecks.
