«Every year between May and August, Giant Australian Cuttlefish migrate to shallow waters near Whyalla to breed. This is a unique spectacle and not replicated anywhere else. Thousands of cuttlefish make this journey. They grow up to 60 centimetres long and can weigh up to 5 kilograms. They have the unusual ability to change shape and colour to match their surroundings. The males even turn a fluorescent blue to attract a female mate. They are gentle creatures and don’t mind sharing the ocean with others, including us.
«See these amazing sea creatures from the comfort of a glass bottom boat. Watch them swim, change colour and mate (if you’re lucky).
«OPTIONAL/ALTERNATIVE TOUR; Instead of seeing the cuttlefish from the glass bottom boat, you may wish to snorkel with them instead. You must be a confident swimmer and be able to walk over beach rocks to get to the water, walk through the shallow water with flippers on and swim out to a depth of approximately 3 metres. Wet suits and liners are provided. A qualified guide accompanies you. Cost for the optional/alternative tour is $100.00 per person.
