Our selection consists of dry bags and sturdy waterproof cases designed to hold valuables and underwater equipment like your underwater camera case. We choose high quality brands to ensure durability and excellent design.

Toms Cave

Wall Dive Wall Dive | Boat access Boat access

Advanced Open Water Rated Inside Port Phillip Reef Dive Site Slack Water

Depth: 22 m (72 ft) to 30 m (98 ft)

Tom's Cave is a nice little cave dive on Lonsdale Wall. The entrance on the wall is at around 30 m (98 ft), then you proceed through the cave and exit at about 22 m (72 ft). It's an easy swim through for advanced divers. There is plenty to see in the area where you exit Tom's Cave.

The Rip & Tides Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive within "The Rip" (aka "The Heads"). This is a dangerous stretch of water, where Bass Straight meets Port Phillip, which has claimed many ships and lives. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-the-rip before diving or snorkelling this site.

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Wathaurong (Wadda-Warrung) people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes the coastline of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-east, the Bellarine Peninsula, and down to Cape Otway in the south-west. We wish to acknowledge the Wathaurong as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

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.
