Crayfish Dive Site Open Water Rated Outside Port Phillip Reef Dive Site

Depth: 14 metres (46 feet) to 20 metres (66 feet)

Discovered and named by a Seinfeld fan who when 'sounding' over this area did a great Kramer impersonation and yelled Giddiup! when he noticed this dive site's spectacular looking formations. The name stuck.

Giddiup is approximately 1 kilometre from the Point Lonsdale Light and clear of the shipping channel, just outside Port Phillip Heads. It's an amazing area of Bommies and underwater rock formations.

The strong current flow in this area has created a nutrient rich environment and subsequently prolific marine growth and the associated marine life. But it's the amazing rock formations that make this dive site special.

Divers have the opportunity to catch crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) at this dive site. Remember your catch bag, current Victorian Recreational Fishing Licence, rock lobster measure, and cray tags. Please abide by all current fishing regulations if you intend to catch crays. See How To Catch Crayfish for practical cray hunting advice from The Scuba Doctor.

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.
