Portsea Hole is situated in Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, about 500 metres from the Portsea Pier and is a remnant of the old Yarra River.

The top of the hole is 14 metres (45 feet) and to the north there is a vertical wall approximately 75 metres (250 feet) long which drops to sand at 27 metres (90 feet), then into a sand bowl which bottoms at 33 metres (110 feet). The wall comprises small overhangs, which are home to a vast array of invertebrate life and fish, in particular the beautiful Blue Devil fish.

On the top of the hole there are several rock Bommies that host hundreds of fish of many species.

Portsea Hole is one of Victoria's premier dive sites and a popular slack water boat dive as it is sheltered from southerlies.
