Flynns Reef lies on the western side of Phillip Island between Flynns Beach (at the northern end of Cat Bay) and Farm Beach. Flynn's Reef attracts divers of all kinds, from novice to advanced. Visibility of up to 20 metres and mild currents make Flynn's Reef a popular diving and snorkelling spot that you shouldn't miss. It is blessed with the most colourful and diverse marine life.
Flynns Beach faces west-south-west and receives waves averaging 0.6 metres. After entering the water at Flynns Beach, head north and begin to explore Flynns Reef as you head towards Farm Beach. At your halfway point, turn around and make your way back to exit at Flynns Beach.

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes parts of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-west, down to Wilson's Promontory in the south-east, including the Mornington Peninsula, French Island and Phillip Island, plus Western Port. We wish to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung 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.
