January 2022 Tours

Sat 22 Jan

Vessel: Red Devil

Scallop Drift - 5-15M
  • 12:45 pm - Boarfish Reef - 10M
    Portsea Pier 1245
    Boarfish Reef - 10M

    Boarfish Reef is a vibrantly coloured dive site, with varied and interesting terrain, suitable for divers with an Open Water certification and above and great for photography.

    Locals and divers new to Melbourne alike will love the richness of colour on display here, with stunningly coloured sponges and the chance to see Southern Blue Devil fish, Port Jackson Sharks, nudibranchs, yellow sea spiders and, as the name suggests, the Longsnout Boarfish. Site depth ranges from around 10m - 22m, with some great stuff to be found around the 13m - 15m range.

    Divers have the opportunity to catch Crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) here - just remember your fishing licence and check that you are abiding by all current fishing regulations if you intend to do this. Note that plastic tags have been replaced by digital tags, so a digital tag and catch details must be reported via the GoFishVic app.

    Certification required: OW - 18M

Boarfish Reef - 10M
  • 2:30 pm - Double Wreck Dive (Canberra and J4 Submarine) 22m+
    Portsea Pier 1430 Queenscliff South Pier - (not Bridge Street) 1445
    Double Wreck Dive (Canberra and J4 Submarine) 22m+

    This double dive offers divers the opportunity to experience two of the most intact wrecks in the area. 30m minimum certification is required and a wreck certification plus redundant air will be required if you plan to penetrate the wrecks. Please bring 2 tanks, as we do not come back between dives.

    The ex-HMAS Canberra is a magnificent wreck dive and Victoria's first artificial reef created for scuba diving. The wreck is 138m long and lies in 30m of water, off Barwon Heads. It has much to see, with the entire superstructure accessible, as well as the inside of the wreck for those trained in wreck penetration. Since 2009, when it was scuttled, the wreck has attracted a great deal of marine life and continues to be one of the most popular dives in Melbourne.

    The J4 Submarine is a beautiful wreck and reef site and is the most accessible, dive-able submarine in Australia. The sub sits on its keel in around 26m of water. The conning tower is intact and in great condition, and the bow section broke off during scuttling and exposed the torpedo tubes, which makes this section easily accessible to divers without the need to penetrate the wreck. For those certified to penetrate, there are multiple hatch openings as entry points.

    The alternate site due adverse weather conditions will be a double drift dive.

  • 1:30 pm - Double Wreck Dive (Canberra and J4 Submarine) 22m+
    Portsea Pier 1330 Queenscliff South Pier - (not Bridge Street) 1345
    Double Wreck Dive (Canberra and J4 Submarine) 22m+

    This double dive offers divers the opportunity to experience two of the most intact wrecks in the area. 30m minimum certification is required and a wreck certification plus redundant air will be required if you plan to penetrate the wrecks. Please bring 2 tanks, as we do not come back between dives.

    The ex-HMAS Canberra is a magnificent wreck dive and Victoria's first artificial reef created for scuba diving. The wreck is 138m long and lies in 30m of water, off Barwon Heads. It has much to see, with the entire superstructure accessible, as well as the inside of the wreck for those trained in wreck penetration. Since 2009, when it was scuttled, the wreck has attracted a great deal of marine life and continues to be one of the most popular dives in Melbourne.

    The J4 Submarine is a beautiful wreck and reef site and is the most accessible, dive-able submarine in Australia. The sub sits on its keel in around 26m of water. The conning tower is intact and in great condition, and the bow section broke off during scuttling and exposed the torpedo tubes, which makes this section easily accessible to divers without the need to penetrate the wreck. For those certified to penetrate, there are multiple hatch openings as entry points.

    The alternate site due adverse weather conditions will be a double drift dive.
