Let us take you on an adventure to snorkel with the giant cuttlefish! Just once per year these curious creatures migrate and congregate in their thousands for breeding. They are visually striking due to their ability to display arrays of luminescent patterns and colours, which you will see change before your eyes!

Make your own way to the home of the Giant Cuttlefish and meet your guide at the accommodation in Whyalla. After dropping your bags in your room, enjoy some well-deserved free time; explore the town, say hello to the renowned local dolphins, walk along the beach or simply relax.
After sunset, sit down to indulge in a delicious dinner while enjoying a presentation from our marine expert. In this fun and informative session, you will learn about the Giant Cuttlefish behaviour including how they change colours, patterns and shape.
After waking to enjoy breakfast, you’ll soon be driving out to where the Giant Cuttlefish play! Upon arrival, you’ll receive a full experience and safety briefing before entering the water with your marine expert and snorkelling guides.
Swimming just a few metres from the shore, you’ll start to encounter these unique and wonderful creatures in their natural environment. Observe their graceful gliding among the rocks and sea plants as you witness their changing shapes and colours. Back on shore, you’ll change into warm clothes and enjoy a hot drink while reflecting on your amazing Cuttlefish experience.
Now, sadly it is time to say goodbye! Leave Whyalla in your own time and continue on to your next adventure!
