Spearfishing Fins


You will need special spearfishing fins, or freediving fins, whenever you are out spearfishing. (We don't call them flippers!) Spearfishing fins are longer, more flexible and of a simpler design than scuba diving fins as they are designed to get the spearfisher to greater depths while conserving energy and oxygen.

If you are just starting out in spear fishing, plastic fins are fine and will provide plenty of use and enjoyment. However if you are looking to take the next step in your spearfishing, it's beneficial for you to invest in carbon spearfishing fins as they will take you deeper more efficiently and, being higher in quality, will last you for many years.

Ranelagh Beach in Mount Eliza is accessed from a track that leads down to the shacks on the beach from the car park at the end of Earimil Drive. There are things to see at both ends of the beach. You can also head out to Cahill's Reef, marked by a beacon.

Be careful of jet skis and other boating traffic. Best to tow a dive flag.

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

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.
