Depth: 1 metre (3.3 feet) to 5 metres (16 feet)

Level: Snorkelling, Open Water and beyond.

Located mid-way along Nepean Bay, situated on the north side of Point Nepean, this reef dive site features an old radar station on land almost directly above the site. This reef is full of marine life and a large variety of fish species. You can also explore for the colourful nudibranchs that hide among the kelp covering the bottom.

This shallow site is great for both snorkellers and scuba divers. However, the site can only be accessed by boat, as shore diving is prohibited at Point Nepean. It is best dived on the ebb tide.

This site lies in the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park. The park is made up of six separate marine areas around the southern end of Port Phillip: Swan Bay, Mud Islands, Point Lonsdale, Point Nepean, Popes Eye, and Portsea Hole.

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.
