    Queenscliff 1430 Portsea 1450

    Many ships have come to grief upon the dangerous southern coast of Victoria. The area around the Port Phillip Heads is the most treacherous of all, with numerous wrecks to be found. Near the Point Lonsdale lighthouse, a number of wrecks are grouped together in shallow water, providing a perfect location for snorkeling and diving. The Holyhead, the George Roper, The Black Boy, The Glaneuse and a number of others can all be seen on the one dive. The terrain is covered in sea grass, so whilst the wrecks are well covered there is plenty of sea life.

    Queenscliff 0800 Portsea 0820
    Foggy Reef 8-30m

    As part of the Port Phillips Heads Marine National Park Foggy Reef is at the very southern end of the Lonsdale Wall. 

    If you are a bit of a scavenger hunter you can go looking for the two old cannons or the huge anchor that are embedded in the wall.

    The top of the reef is around 8 meters. Swimming east from the shot you will find the edge wall, dropping over the wall you can descend to around 25 meters. From this point if you follow the wall to the south it will curve around to the east.

    About 20 meters from where you go over the wall there will be a huge old admiralty anchor embedded in the wall. Directly opposite this site lying in the sand are 2 old cannons. Unfortunately the sand movement in this area means that sometimes the cannons are buried. After you have had a look around turn back the way you came and follow the wall north for the rest of your dive. Check out the amazing overhangs undercuts and the amazing soft corals and sponges that are prolific in this area.

  • 1:00 pm - 12lb Reef 8-20m
    S/E

    Queenscliff 1300 Portsea 1320

    12lb Reef is located on the Lonsdale Wall. Its name has a similar pedigree to that of 16lb reef - namely that,it was home to a massive crayfish. The difference, however, is that this one was caught.

    The story goes along the following lines: a cray diver caught site of the monster in its cave, and grabbed it. In fact, its more accurate to say that the cray caught him: by the time he reached the surface the two were still locked in a mortal struggle! Nevertheless, there could well be more still lurking here, so if you fancy your skills as a cray basher it is definitely worth a look.

  • 6:15 am - Lonsdale Bommies 12-20m
    Ebb

    Queenscliff 0615 Portsea 0635

    Discovered and named by one of the great local diving identities this dive site is spectacular.

    Approximately 1 kilometre from the Point Lonsdale Light and clear of the shipping channel, just outside Port Phillip Heads is an amazing area of Bommies or underwater rock formations. The strong current flow in this area has created a nutrient rich environment and subsequently prolific marine growth and the associated marine life. But it is the amazing rock formations that make this dive site special.

  • 7:15 am - Popes Eye 0-12m
    Ebb

    Queenscliff 0715 Portsea 0735

    Pope's Eye is a man made basalt rock annulus. It is the foundation of what was to be an Island Fort built in the 1880's. This horseshoe shaped artificial reef is now a Marine Reserve and the home of many species of fish, invertebrates and algae, including large fronds of macro cysts kelp. The inside of Pope's Eye provides a safe anchorage in 2 meters of water while outside, the rock wall extends to a depth of 12 metes. While the best time to dive Pope's Eye is on the start of the ebb tide, it provides almost all weather, all current diving.

  • 10:15 am - The Plateau 16-40m
    S/F

    Queenscliff 1015 Portsea 1035
    The Plateau 16-40m

    This is a dive in the middle of the Port Phillip Heads. The plateau is a huge rocky platform in around the 16-meter range winding it's way around the edge of this platform is the Entrance deep. This is the deepest water in Victoria, originally part of the river Yarra. Depths at the bottom of this area are between 40 meters and 100 meters. The slack water period here is short, hard to pick and the currents a little unpredictable. Then of course there is the problem of the dive site being in the shipping channel and diving only possible when sea conditions the tide and shipping allow. Despite all of that this area is amazing with some fantastic rock formations sheltering an amazing array of sea life.

Generally, this dive is done at the end of the flood so at is at it's clearest. In this dive it is best to swim along the east west wall first and then return onto the north south wall before the current picks up.
