Twinset Regulators


Diving on twin cylinders requires two first stages and a different hose configuration to single cylinder or sidemount diving. Twinset Regulators are made to be used on twin cylinders so all you need to do is add a pressure gauge and inflator hoses to your needs and off you go. Some manufacturers produce dedicated 1st stages that only have ports on one side for neat hose routing with minimal failure points on doubles regulator sets.

Diving at Big Reef, Portland

Big Reef can be easily overlooked (on the way to somewhere else), but it offers a vast array of interesting dive opportunities. The reef was once a massive contributor to the commercial abalone catch in the area. That is sadly no longer the case, but there is still plenty to see (both marine life and underwater scenery) on the right day.

The eastern side of Big Reef drops quickly from 5 metres to 15 metres deep. The western side drops away more gradually.

Location: Portland, Victoria 3305

Ideal Conditions: This dive site is very weather dependant. Best dived in good conditions with a low swell with light winds. See WillyWeather (Point Danger) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Boat Launching: Access is by boat, taking about 15 minutes from the Portland Harbour, Lee Breakwater Road North Ramp or the Portland Harbour, Lee Breakwater Road South Ramp.

Gunditjmara country
Gunditjmara country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Gunditjmara people of far south-western Victoria which continues over the state border into a small part of south-east South Australia and is bordered by the Glenelg River to the west and the Wannon River in the north. This truly ancient Country extends 100 metres out to sea from low tide and also includes Deen Maar (aka Lady Julia Percy Island) where the Gunditjmara believe the spirits of their dead travel to wait to be reborn. We wish to acknowledge the Gunditjmara as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

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.
