|Mornington Pier is a regulary used dive training site and a relaxing after work night dive site for many Melbourne based divers.
Entry/Exit: A giant stride from the 3 metre high car park wall near the ladders. Can exit via the ladders, or by using the inlet ledge and climbing up the wall.
A site which is usually diveable when the wind is up.
Varied bottom depending on the area which means you wont get bored as it is changing the whole dive. Lots of large ledges and bolders, to sea grass covered rocks to silty mud. Lots of growth on rocks under the pier.
Abounds with sponge life, pot bellied seahorses, old wives, whiting, morwong, crabs, small shrimp and plenty of other small life.
Parking: Normally good, fee parking at entry point. If the car park is full you could be up for a 200 metre plus walk. If the car park is empty, it can be just a 4 metre walk to the water.
