Spearfishing Suits


The Scuba Doctor has a huge range of spearfishing wetsuits to keep you protected and warm in the water! The spear fishing wetsuit thickness you need will depend on the water temperature where you are diving. Smoothskin or reversible spearfishing wetsuits are a great new design of wetsuit and provide protection from the wind while being easy to slip on without lubricant, also making you more streamlined through the water.

Rashies and Lycra suits are great for summer spearfishing and spearfishing where harmful jelly fish may be present. The Scuba Doctor has a range of rashies and lycra suits for spearfishing including rashies with loading pads and camouflaged rashies.

If you are diving where harmful jelly fish or stingers may be present it can be a good idea to purchase a full body wetsuit or lycra suit with a hood to fully protect your body from possibly deadly stings.

Depth: 5 m (16 ft) to 9 m (30 ft)

Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond

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.

One side of the pier is for access to the ferry terminal service from Stony Point to French and Phillip Island, which is restricted to anglers. The right-hand side of the pier is accessible to the public.

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.

You are likely to see Squid, King George whiting, Australian salmon, silver trevally, yellow-eye mullet, flathead, and snapper here.

Location: Crib Point, 3919
MELWAY Ref: Page 195 F5

Entry/exit: Access is from the beach.

See WillyWeather (Stony Point) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Facilities: Located at the end of Stony Point Road, the pier has Stony Point Boat Ramp and nearby parking areas available, with public toilets. There is a general store across the road.

Safety First: Do the right thing and use a dive flag and stay clear of boat traffic areas. Always carry a knife and/or line cutter to deal with potential fishing line entanglements.

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.
