Ideal For Snorkelling Marine Park - No Fishing Open Water Rated Reef Dive Site Wilsons Promontory

Refuge Cove, South on the eastern side of Wilsons Promontory is suitable for both snorkelling and scuba diving. It has boulders sloping down to a sandy bottom at a depth of 9 metres.

The site is sheltered from most wind conditions even when easterlies prevent diving elsewhere. This is a good spot for a night dive if you're camping at Refuge Cove.

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.
