Your full-day tour begins at a surf shop in Torquay. If you have opted for pickup from Melbourne, you are driven from central Melbourne to the surf shop.

Upon arrival, receive a brief orientation, and get fitted for your board and wetsuit. Then board your van and head down the Great Ocean Road in search of a prime surf spot. Once you find one, receive a safety briefing and a morning surf lesson. After a couple hours, take a break for lunch.

Afterward, get back to the beach for the second surf lesson of the day. You’ll have about 90 minutes to practice and hit the waves.

Next, hop back in the van and visit Bells Beach, a world-famous destination for expert surfers with great vantage points around surrounding cliffs.

Finish the tour with drop-off at the Torquay surf shop or in Melbourne.
