Depth: 1 metre (3.3 feet) to 6 metres (20 feet)

Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond

St Paul's Rock, at the end of St Paul's Road in Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, is west of the small beach and has a nice swim through tunnel running underneath. The caves here are mystical. There's lots of kelp and at low tide, if you have a strong northerly breeze blowing, chances are this site will be diveable.

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.
