Drift Dive Site Inside Port Phillip Open Water Rated Reef Dive Site

Depth: 12 metres (39 feet) to 20 metres (66 feet)


Sponge Hollows, by Jane Headley.

Sponge Garden Drift takes you over massive sponge gardens and shallow reefs inside Port Phillip. It's the colours of the sponges that make this dive stunning. As in any drift dive the terrain is always changing and you originally start drifting over an area of shallow reefs then over the sponge gardens and finally over larger reefs and Bommies.

The fish life on these dives varies just as much as the terrain and of course there is always the chance of coming across old bottles and other collectable artefacts.

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.
