Spearfishing Masks

Your spear fishing mask is an important part of your kit as it is essentially your eyes underwater! Low volume masks are great for spearfishing as they require less air to be used to equalise the mask at a depth, therefore saving vital oxygen.

Before using a new dive mask you will need to get rid of the factory seal used to protect the mask while it is on the shelf. Rub baby shampoo into the lens and skirt of your spearfishing mask, leave for three minutes, then wash off with warm (not hot) clean water. Repeat this process three times to ensure that your new spearfishing mask does not fog up too much on its first use.

Did you ever wonder why all the good spear fishermen wear only dark skirt masks? Clear silicone skirts can create reflections on the inside of the lenses from surface light distracting the hunter's focus on the prey. Real underwater hunters always wear Black.

Prescription/Corrective Lens Spearfishing Masks: — If you wear glasses and need some assistance seeing clearly when spearfishing, The Scuba Doctor is Australia's largest supplier of Corrective Lens Masks.

Note: Diving/snorkelling masks are very different to Swimming Goggles. See Goggles vs Masks.

Fenwick Bight

Reef Dive Reef Dive | Boat access Boat access

Advanced Open Water Rated Marine Park - No Fishing Reef Dive Site Slack Water Wilsons Promontory

Depth: 10 m (33 ft) to 30 m (98 ft)

Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond.

Fenwick Bight is an interesting dive site at the southern end of Wilsons Promontory, with South Point marking the western end of the bight. It faces south into the often wild seas of Bass Strait, and is located within the Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park. It's a very rewarding boat dive site for adventurous divers.

Fenwick Bight was named after Frederick Fenwick, an early settler (Inverloch Historical Society).

Diving at Fenwick Bight

At Fenwick Bight the diving is on a fringe of granite boulders along the shoreline, ending in sand in moderate depths.

The eastern end of Fenwick Bight offers a little shelter and easy diving in good weather, but is still exposed to southerly and south-westerly winds. Out toward the point it is a little deeper with vertical walls and interesting small caves. The dive is a good place to see Barber Perch, Boarfish, Leatherjackets, Sea Carp (Marblefish) and Wrasse.

It's a very remote dive site location, only accessible with a dive boat.

Ideal Conditions: Fenwick Bight is best dived with calm seas, no swell and no wind. Light offshore south-westerly to westerly winds may be acceptable. Avoid diving with moderate to strong onshore south-easterly to south-westerly winds. Because of the depths that can be reached here, plus the sometimes strong currents, Fenwick Bight is best dived at slack water. See WillyWeather (Fenwick Bight) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park

This site lies in Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park, Victoria's largest marine sanctuary. There is a huge diversity of marine life within the waters at the Prom. Brilliantly coloured fish are present such as the Red Velvetfish, Eastern Blue Groper and Wrasse as well as Leafy Seadragons and schools of Barber Perch. Intertidal molluscs such as limpets and snails, as well as anemones, brittlestars and seastars, are also common within the waters.

Divers will experience fascinating sponge gardens which consist of a techni-coloured assemblage of sponges, sea tulips, sea whips, lace corals and seafans. Octopus emerge at night whilst sharks and rays roam the sandy areas.

The offshore islands support many colonies of fur seals and oceanic birds such as Little Penguins, Fairy Prions, Silver Gulls and Pacific Gulls.

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.
