Scuba diving

Victoria

  • Diving, Portsea, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia

Explore underwater Victoria.

Discoveries in the bay
Dive Port Phillip Bay and discover more than 60 nineteenth-century shipwrecks and four submarines that were sunk during World War I, seahorses and soft corals. Port Phillip Heads are home to some of the most spectacular wall dives in Australia that start at a depth of about 12 metres and extend beyond 90 metres. If you prefer shore diving, head to Mornington, Portsea or Rye piers.

Protected parks and spectacular sites
Dive sites located along the Great Ocean Road range from 20-metre high kelp forests to spectacular caves, swim-throughs and an abundance of fish life, crayfish and abalone among the reef and shipwreck sites. Gippsland’s rugged and spectacular coastline is protected by a number of marine parks and has some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Australia.

Be safe
Scuba diving is a potentially high-risk activity and should only be undertaken by qualified people. Victoria's cool water environments can be challenging so seek local knowledge before you dive in a new location.
