Marine Park - No Fishing Open Water Rated Outside Port Phillip Wreck Dive Site

The Glaneuse is significant historically as the wreck of a large European built iron hulled sailing barque. The wreck resulted in intense scrutiny on the pilot service and a Public Enquiry resulting in changes to pilotage operations.

The Glaneuse is rarely dived due to its location in the surf line making diving uncomfortable and dangerous on all but the rarest of totally calm days. She lies about 120 metres west of the George Roper, close in to the shore.

See WillyWeather as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

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.
