Snorkel and freediving Australia innovator Marlon Quinn wants to share with you the finest marine experiences. Our small group boat tours highlight spectacular scenery, wildlife and underwater features and marine life that you can’t find anywhere else on Earth.

Stay above the water and join our sightsee cruise on the Dolphin and Seals Wildlife RIB Boat Ecotour. No matter your swimming level, everyone is mesmerised on a bay snorkelling excursion during an amazing Seals & Dolphins Great Southern Reef snorkel tour or Seadragons and Seals swim tour. Certified freedivers will find new underwater secrets during a Bay Freediving Adventure. Interstate and overseas freediving escapes take in the magical sinkholes of the Limestone Coast or the blue waters under 180 million year old cliffs of Tasmania’s Tasman Peninsula.  For the ultimate freedive reward, international Solomon Islands Escapes offer untouched beauty and incredible diversity!
