Depth: 2 metres (6.6 feet) to 5 metres (16 feet)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

Ideal Conditions:
High tide gives extra depth under the walkway. See WillyWeather as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

What To Expect:
Flathead, old wives, moonlighters etc. can be seen on the silty bottom.

The Geelong Sea Baths site is quite crap and the vis is often going to be atrocious. Lots of rubbish in the sea baths and it's quite icky. If you swim along the inside of the baths, the bars will bang against each other which is kind of freaky.

Not much sealife but that could be because of the bad viz. There are some sponge growths on the seabath walls. Lots of relics to find that people have dropped in amongst the rubbish.

Weather Required: Protected from all winds other than NE winds, however visibility will be ruined by any wind around Corio Bay as it is stirred up easily.

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.
