Caretaking Port Phillip Bay and the Mornington Peninsula
GREATER MEANING BREATH BY BREATH
Invite greater meaning into your life, breath by breath on the Mornington Peninsula.
Flanked by the Mornington Peninsula on the East side and the Bellarine Peninsula on the West side, Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay is a natural marine wonder worthy of admiration.
Hidden in its vastness are unique marine species including the Weedy Seadragon, Burrunan Dolphin, Australian Fur Seal, Smooth Stingray, Spider Crab and Giant Cuttlefish, some of which are only found on the Great Southern Reef, bound by the cooler temperate waters of the Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean.
Here on the Mornington Peninsula, bathed in fresh sea air the beautiful emerald and azure waters are safely protected and easily accessed to view beautiful seascapes, natural coastline and incredible marine life by our 12-person RIB boats.

FOUNDER, MARLON QUINN
WaterMaarq was developed and launched in 2014 by former IT Executive turned Sea Changer, Freediving Instructor Trainer, RIB Pilot and Dolphin & Seal Tour Host, Marlon Quinn.
He himself was not a natural freediver. Having feinted at the pool from cold as a young child. On another occasion being rushed to hospital unable to breathe, feeling as if suffocating. Being crushed to expiration by wayward teens in a game of stacks-on. Surely not the core foundations to holding one’s breath.
As an adult though, he at last found the sea, only to encounter a stingray head-on and retreat with fright. This was the catalyst though, to learn with the world’s best freedivers, the modern gods of the sea, where he found beauty and peace within himself, on one breath, freediving deep into the blue sea.
