Nepean Wall runs East to West just outside Port Phillip Heads on the Point Nepean side. To go over the wall you swim South from the shot. Descending to your desired depth you can swim in either direction along the wall, but it is important that you return to the shot for your ascent as the current here turns very quickly. It is also a good idea to keep your bottom time shorter on this dive.

This dive is only done on the ebb turning to flood so that at the end of your dive the current will bring you back into Port Phillip. The wall along here is amazing with lots of soft coral and sponges but slightly different coverage than the Lonsdale Wall side. The odd Crayfish is collected here too. The fish life is amazing and this quite often brings Seals into the area.

Divers have the opportunity to catch crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) at this dive site. Remember your catch bag, current Victorian Recreational Fishing Licence, rock lobster measure, and cray tags. Please abide by all current fishing regulations if you intend to catch crays. See How To Catch Crayfish for practical cray hunting advice from The Scuba Doctor.

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.
