Underwater Photographic Prints

Decorate your home and office walls with photographic prints by local artists. Each image comes with a certificate of authenticity and is signed and numbered.

Underwater photography captures the beguiling beauty of the world that exists below the surface of our oceans, where inhabitants seemingly float through life. Underwater photos are calming and yet often exploding with colour, bringing life and interest to your home or office decor.

This collection of photos by local artists includes brilliant photos of Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne, Australia, and overseas underwater locations, and the list will continue to grow.

The Scuba Doctor will continue to search for artwork and artists to feature for sale on our web site. If you have suggestions, or you have artworks you would like to include in the collection, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

Depth: 2 m (6.56 ft) to 8 m (26 ft)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

The Middle Brighton Pier site is a good, safe controlled training area excellent for divers just getting into the sport. Head out past the Brighton Baths and across the sandy flats along the southern edge rock wall.

Park and gear up as close to the entry/exit point as possible as there is a very gentle and paved ramp leading right into the water from the car park if you wish to dive around the sea baths and the reef further out. To dive the breakwater you can enter from the first or second landing. It is better not to do a giant stride as the water is shallow, just climb down the ladder.

Under the pier there isn't much life around other than seastars. Out along the breakwater is quite nice with lots of nooks and crannies to find blennies, starfish, zebrafish, moonlighters, leatherjackets, seahorse and life similar to South Road. It is nice to ascend along the back wall to see a cool view of the CBD before heading back to the pier. You can combine diving the breakwater with the reef if you reach the corner of the breakwater and swim out diagonally SW.

Best dived midweek, or as a night dive, when the car parking is easier.

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.
