Ideal For Snorkelling Inside Port Phillip Night Dive Site Open Water Rated Reef Dive Site

Depth: 1 m (3.28 ft) to 4 m (13 ft)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

Andersen Reserve is a delightful shore diving and snorkelling site at Point George, Indented Heads, Victoria, 3223, south-west of Geelong on the Bellarine Peninsula in Port Phillip. The waters are generally calm and sheltered and it's a nice night dive site. It's a shallow dive, best done at high tide. Best to use a dive float with a dive flag as there can be a lot of boat traffic in the area.

Seahorses, nudibranchs, stingrays, pipefish, globefish, fiddler rays and interesting hydroids can be found here.

How To Get There
Turn off Hood Road (C125), onto The Esplanade just as you come into Indented Heads from the west. You will find a car park and picnic area from where you can make your way onto the beach.

Location: Indented Heads, Victoria 3223
MELWAY Ref: Page 445 K10

Ideal Conditions: The beach faces north east so best dived with an offshore south westerly wind. Best at high tide. See WillyWeather (Point George) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Wathaurong (Wadda-Warrung) people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes the coastline of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-east, the Bellarine Peninsula, and down to Cape Otway in the south-west. We wish to acknowledge the Wathaurong as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
