Rye Pier offers beautiful underwater vistas and some of the warmest water in Port Phillip Bay. The water is approximately 6m maximum in depth. Diving at high tide with calm waters offers the best scenery. Underwater it is predominantly sandy around the pier, with small patches of sea grass and once out from the pier it is pure sand bed.
Under the pier keep your eyes on the pylons for bottom feeding stingrays, seahorses, spider crabs and octopus, through to a range of fish species. There is also a trail of photographs (known as the Octopuses Garden) attached to the pylons, explaining the various marine life present.
Night diving is popular where you are likely to see a plethora of squid, octopus, seahorses and nudibranch.
Ocean views from the ferris wheel, giggles from the tea-cups and wishes at the clowns.
Located on the Rye Foreshores on Pt Nepean Rd, our annual carnivals are a nostalgic holiday adventure for so many families.
