Stony Point Pier is located on the western side of Western Port, and the eastern side of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. It acts as a port for various vessels including passenger ferries to French Island and Phillip Island. As it's a working pier it's important divers stay out of the way of all commercial activities. Do the right thing and use a dive flag and stay clear of boat traffic areas.

Currents are a major factor when trying to dive at Stony Point Pier. Strong tidal currents swirl around the point and through the pier. Best dived on slack water, preferably at the end of an incoming flood tide.

Access is from the beach.

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.
