What natural wonders does Whyalla hold in its deeps? Humans have been captivated with what is under the sea and the earth for centuries.
The crystal waters off the Whyalla coast reflect a sense of calmness as you look upon the water, a whole world of natural wonders exist under the depths.
Dancing and piercing through the water, the local Dolphins are like shimmering silver, these beautiful creatures echo the innocence and purity of nature in their friendliness and play. Resident Dolphins often visit inside the Whyalla Marina and can be seen up close from the pontoons.

Giant Cuttlefish and many species of fish and sea creatures abound in the unique marine habitat off the coast of Whyalla in the Spencer Gulf being one of only a handful of inverse estuaries in the world.
A mecca for divers wishing to witness a mesmerising underwater spectacle; for researchers attempting to unravel the mysteries of the courtship displays and the extent of the world’s largest aggregation of Giant Australian Cuttlefish, and for snorkelers taking advantage of the shallow rocky reef habitat to watch the sophisticated antics of courtship - observing the Giant Cuttlefish in such numbers is a privileged experience exclusive to Whyalla.
