Spray Point Caverns on the Blairgowrie back beach of the Mornington Peninsula should only be dived by experienced divers with plenty of fitness and strength, even on calm days. The spectacular headland of Spray Point provides views over Koonya Ocean Beach to the east and back towards Diamond Bay in the west. Plenty of great overhangs and sea caves. A great crayfish and abalone site.

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.
