Depth: 1 m (3.28 ft) to 5 m (16 ft)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

Ideal Conditions:
Sea Scouts Jetty is best dived with north-westerly to easterly winds. Avoid diving with strong south-easterly to westerly winds. As this dive site is sheltered under the cliffs to some extent, it can be a good dive when the winds are unfavourable elsewhere. Just before the high tide will give the clearest water. See WillyWeather (Ricketts Point) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

What To Expect:
The Sea Scouts Jetty dive site lies just around the corner from Table Rock Point in Beaumaris Bay, on the eastern side of Port Phillip. It's just outside of the boundaries of the Rickett's Point Marine Sanctuary.

Sea Scouts Jetty can be an exciting dive for a new snorkeler as it involves an interesting transit under towering cliffs and a boulder strewn bottom from various cliff collapses. Marine life can be exciting in the ledge areas.

Sea Scouts Jetty is a great site for beginner snorkellers and night dive enthusiasts. It's so close to the city, thus very convenient for those living in Melbourne. Great for getting back in the water, a night dive after work, or just an excuse to get wet!

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.
