Advanced Open Water Rated Ideal For Snorkelling Marine Park - No Fishing Reef Dive Site Wilsons Promontory

Depth: 2 m (6.56 ft) to 25 m (82 ft)

Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond.

Larkin Cove, on the eastern side of Wilsons Promontory, is a safe site suitable for scuba diving from a boat and snorkelling from the shore. Larkin Cove lies in the Wilsons Promontory Marine Reserve facing north into Bass Strait and receives only low waves at the shore.

Larkin Cove lies between Refuge Cove to the north and Bare Back Cove to the south. Larkin Cove Beach is composed of coarse, white quartz sand that results in a steep, barless beach, with seagrass growing in the relatively deep water just off the shoreline. Larkin Cove Beach is just 80 metres in length.

Diving and Snorkelling at Larkin Cove

The attraction at Larkin Cove is some low granite swim throughs and caves. One found at 7 metres depth is 12 metres long and a torch is handy for exploring it. The seaweed in the area seems to collect silt which is readily stirred up, but it is generally an easy dive. There is still plenty of the usual reef marine life to see.

Due to the long trek overland to get here, this site is really only accessible for snorkelling and apnea diving from shore. For scuba divers, it's a boat dive.

Ideal Conditions: Larkin Cove is best dived with calm seas, no swell and no wind. Light offshore south-westerly to south-easterly winds may be acceptable. Avoid strong onshore northerly to easterly winds. See WillyWeather (Larkin Cove) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

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.
