  • 1:30 pm - J4 26m Submarine (Wreck) 30m

    J4 26m Submarine (Wreck) 30m

    Scuttled in the 1920s, this submarine was rediscovered by divers in 1982. The Melbourne Bottom Scratcher's Dive Club has placed a plaque at the conning tower base commemorating their find.

    Known as the 26m, 27m and 90 foot sub, the wreck lies with its bow pointing out to sea. During its scuttling
    the bow section broke off, exposing the forward torpedoes tubes and bow modifications.

    Depths of up to 30m can be gained around and under the broken bow section.
    As with the other Subs, the 26m sub is host to a variety of plant and animal life.

    Good conditions for photography are often found near the conning tower, which is usually surrounded by many fish.

    For the experienced diver, with the proper certificationn, penetration of the wreck is possible via several large openings in the hull. Such penetration should not be taken lightly, as being shallower than the other subs, this wreck is particularly susceptible to surge. Unwary divers can be literally sucked in and catapulted through the wrecks interior.
    However, the surge prevents any silting, and under suitable conditions this makes for one of Melbourne top dives.

    It is a wonderful fish dive, with a wide variety of creatures from sea dragons to Port Jackson sharks to be found on and around the Rock. There is even a slim chance of a cray or two under the overhangs at the bottom.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This wall runs east west just outside Port Phillip Heads on the Point Nepean side. To go over the wall you swim south from the shot. Descending to your desired depth you can swim either direction along the wall but it is important that you return to the shot for your ascent as the current here turns very quickly. It is also a good idea to keep your bottom time shorter on this dive. This dive is only done on the ebb turning to flood so that at the end of your dive the current will bring you back into the bay. The wall along here is amazing with lots of soft coral and sponges. The odd crayfish is collected here too. The fish life is amazing and this quite often brings seals into the area.
