Guided Dives With Blue-Ringed Octopus

For those wishing to see the elusive and deadly Blue-Ringed Octopus in their natural habitat, this Scuba Doctor Guided Dive is for you. Considered one of the world's most venomous marine animals, they're rarely seen by most divers due to their timid nature. But your dive guides know where they hang out at Blairgowrie Pier on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

Tours begin with your friendly and highly experienced guide preparing you for the guided dive with information on the marine life you can expect to encounter at Blairgowrie Pier plus getting you kitted up with any hire gear (BCD, regulator, wetsuit, cylinder and/or weightbelt) you may need.

Then you'll travel to nearby Blairgowrie Pier which is an awesome place to see the Southern Blue-Ringed Octopus, Southern Keeled Octopus and Maori Octopus. The pylons and sea wall are covered in colourful Sponges, and home to Sea Stars and a large variety of Nudibranchs. You might also see Tasseled Frogfish, Seahorses, Shaws Cowfish, Spider Crabs, Cuttlefish, and Smooth Stingrays. At night under torchlight, you'll see numerous Squid and Octopus, and sometimes Stargazers and Skates.
