Top Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in Victoria
Cottage by the Sea
Australia, Victoria, Pacific
One of Melbourne most well known and best shore dive location. Abundance of fish life including cuttle fish, crays, sea dragons, etc. Best dived on high tide, with no wind or Northerlies as surface conditions remain calm. The dive site opens up towards the main "heads" of Port Phillip Bay and is often exposed to ocean swell. On a good day it is an awesome dive with significant cliff faces, bommies and rock formations down to a depth of about 8-9 metres. It can get a little busy during summer. Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria. From Melbourne, head to Geelong and then onto Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula. The dive site is not sign posted however it has become known due to the Orphanage on the main road into Queencliff called "Cottage by the Sea". Parking is good, and only a short 150m stroll over the sand dunes is required to enter the water.
