Level: Open Water and beyond.

Mordialloc Pier, located on Beach Road, Mordialloc at the entrance to Mordialloc Creek, is fairly close to Melbourne and has similar life to Mornington Pier, but not nearly as interesting.

Heaps of blennies, seahorses, puffer fish, dumpling squid, calamari, starfish, blue ring octopuses, toadfish, jellyfish, and puffers.

The best way to do this pier is to enter off the lower landing, swim to the end of the pier, and then swim all the way back to shore. There is a lot of interesting reef around this pier to check out as well. When you get closer to shore you will find heaps of agro sand crabs running around the sand and the start of the pier is more interesting in general.

This is a good night dive site. It has a lot of dumped shopping trolleys making it a shopping trolley graveyard (where you can find seahorses in particular), and also lots of golf balls as the creek near here leads to a golf course.

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.
