Portsea Pier East Reef, lies between Portsea Pier (to the west) and Point Franklin (to the east) in the waters of Weeroona Bay, Port Phillip on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. It's a reef system that stretches out under the boat moorings.

See also, Point Franklin Reef and Drift in "Shore Dives of Victoria" by Ian Lewis, 3rd edition pages 106–107.

Location: Point Nepean Road, Portsea, Victoria 3944
MELWAY Ref: Page 156 F2

Parking: Free parking after 6 pm at Portsea Pier around 50 metres from the pier with good street lights over your car. During the day and summer, the car parks are hard to get with most being 1 to 2 hour limited.

Safety First: Always go with a buddy and be extremely careful. Be mindful of the boat traffic here as it can often be quite hectic, particularly in summer. Never swim in the inside area of the pier for this reason. Always tow a buoy with dive flag.

Entry/Exit: The best entry is from the shore, or from the landing about halfway out on Portsea Pier.

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

Spearfishing is illegal within 30 metres of any pier or jetty and in Marine National Parks. See Spearfishing Laws.

Boon Wurrung / Bunurong country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes parts of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-west, down to Wilson's Promontory in the south-east, including the Mornington Peninsula, French Island and Phillip Island, plus Western Port. We wish to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

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.
