See what lies beneath Flinders Pier

OzFish, ReefWatch and Fishcare are giving anglers an opportunity to explore the water they usually sit or stand above at Flinders Pier. Weedy sea dragons, octopi, giant smooth rays, and a diverse range of fish that many of us have never seen call the pier home.

The event will provide you with an opportunity to learn how to snorkel. You will then be led on a guided snorkel to experience the incredible underwater world at Flinders Pier.


  • When: Saturday 26 February – two sessions 9:00am – 12:00pm and 1:00 – 4:00pm
  • Where: Flinders Pier – meet on the grass near the boat ramp
  • What to bring: sun protection (hat, sunscreen, sunglasses etc), towel and bathers.
  • RSVP: Bookings are essential. Secure your spot via Eventbrite.
  • All equipment and training will be provided along with some tasty snacks after the snorkel.


OzFish Unlimited is a not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to helping Aussie recreational fishers look after the health of their rivers, lakes and estuaries and shore up the future of the sport they love. OzFish often partners with fishers and the broader community to invest time and money into the protection and restoration of our waterways, aiming to counteract decades of degradation.

Fishcare is a community operated not-for-profit with the motto ‘We fish, we care’. Their work promotes responsible fishing practices and increased stewardship of Victoria’s aquatic environments and is funded through the Recreational Fishing Licence trust fund. Fishcare is operated by enthusiastic volunteers with regional groups across Victoria, from Warrnambool in the west, to Ballarat and as far east as Mallacoota.

Reef Watch is the marine citizen-science program from the Victorian National Parks Association. It aims to train the general fisher to collect important information about fish, invertebrates and algae at locations across Victoria.
