Depth: 2 metres (6.6 feet) to 12 metres (39 feet)

Kitty Miller Bay lies on the south coast of Phillip Island, between Kennan Head to the west and Watt Point to the east, looking out into Bass Strait. This secretive splash spot is directly adjacent to the world-famous Phillip Island Penguin Parade. Great for snorkelling and scuba diving. The western side of the bay is more protected, but the eastern side is more interesting, if you're experienced enough to handle the sometime challenging conditions.

At the southern end of Kitty Miller Road, Phillip Island, it's a long walk from the carpark down to the rocky beach of Kitty Miller Bay. There are entry points to the western and eastern side of the bay.

Perfect conditions for Kitty Miller Bay come after several days of still weather or northerly winds. Enter on the receding tide, whenever it is safe to do so. The lower the tide, the more protected the waters, but some areas are better at mid-tide. See WillyWeather as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

The shipwreck of the Speke lies nearby on the eastern side of Watt Point. The 3000 ton, 100m long, steel barque was on a voyage from Melbourne to South America when she saw hit by a huge storm off Phillip Island. She was driven ashore in February 1906 and broke up on the sea terrace just to the east of Walt Point. The bow wreckage is visible at low water. The rest of the wreck lies in shallow water close to the sea terrace and has been pulverised into small pieces by the swell. The reefs in the surrounding area are also interesting.

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.
