Seaford Pier is a short, 150-metre long pier facing west into the waters of Port Phillip. It's located on the foreshore on the western side of the Nepean Highway opposite Station Street, Seaford on the Mornington Peninsula. Seaford Pier is just 250 metres west of the Seaford railway station.
Underneath the pier you will find shallow waters and plenty of weed beds where garfish are often seen.
It is dangerous to jump off the pier into the water as you can easily land on shallow bar crests.
Location: Seaford, 3198

Easterly winds and high tide. Best dived at high tide. See WillyWeather (Seaford Pier) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.
There is a car park opposite Station Street.
Safety First: There can be a bit of boat traffic around particularly in summer so be sure to take a dive flag. A small knife or line cutter to cut fishing line is always a good idea too as there are usually fishermen around.

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