Relaxed tour with top equipment

The tour with Scubabo is relaxed few hours where you will be given the opportunity to see some of the wonders of Port Phillip. Melbourne weather can change quickly and these guys are also pro dice operators and so know the conditions and locations that will take the best advantage of the current conditions. I HIGHLY recommend including wetsuit hire from scubabo in your plans, and having done dolphin/seal trips with other operators can say that the thick, super warm dive wetsuits you get here are miles ahead of the much thinner ones available at other operations. The boat is a dedicated dive boat, and you may be sharing it with divers. Boat facilities are limited (think bring your own snacks, water etc) but you're not there to sip coffee on a boat, you're there to snorkel! Highly recommended.

Amazing Experience

We had an amazing experience with the team. They were highly professional with great knowledge not only of the sea and dives but also historical relevance of the places we visited. The Seal colony was great to visit and diving with them will surely be a memorable experience. Great team!!
