Strobe Dive Lights


Submersible strobes are an excellent tool to mark the location of the anchor, up-line or meeting point on low visibility and night dives. Not just a 'blinking light', these devices produce a brilliant 360° burst of intense light and can also be used underwater. At the surface, with the exception of the Nautilus Lifeline radio, nothing works better than a true strobe light for signalling your location. Strobes work well for signalling even in broad daylight, although with a more limited range.

Newhaven Jetty is located on Beach Crescent, Newhaven, on the right hand side after crossing the bridge to Phillip Island. It acts as a port for commercial fishing vessels and a deep channel runs across the front of the pier. As it's a working pier it's important divers stay out of the way of all commercial activities. Do the right thing and use a dive flag and stay clear of boat traffic areas.

Currents are a huge factor when trying to dive at Newhaven Jetty. Extremely strong tidal currents swirl through the jetty pylons sometimes as much as 6 knots (11 kpm). Best dived on slack water, preferably at the end of an incoming flood tide. The big problem is slack water doesn't last very long at this dive site.

The tide heights at this pier are such that most of the inner pylons are dry and standing out of the water at low tide. There is plenty of growth on the pylons, especially the sections of those always underwater. Generally, visibility at this dive site isn't as good as at San Remo Jetty on the other side of The Narrows channel.

Location: Newhaven, Phillip Island, Victoria 3925

Entry and exit for the dive is best from the shore to the south of the jetty shed.

See WillyWeather (Newhaven) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

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.
