Nepean Offshore South - Sweep Reef

Reef DiveReef Dive | Boat access

Marine Park - No Fishing Open Water Rated Outside Port Phillip Reef Dive Site

Depth: 3 metres (9.8 feet) to 9 metres (30 feet)

Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond.

Located outside of Port Phillip, this is a large reef system on the southern side of Point Nepean that stretch from Beacon Rock (Rip) to Petriana Reef, one kilometre to the east. The most prominent is Sweep Reef which lies midway between the other two.

This is a boat dive, which if you have any doubts, should not be dived due to the large swells that can occur here. It is best dived on the ebb tide when the swell tends to drop-off.

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.
