The name Catch Bag Reef Drift originates back in the mists of time. The story goes that one day a cray diver of great notoriety had the largest cray he had ever seen in his catch bag. Unfortunately as he handed his gear to the boat the catch bag was lost along with the cray.

This drift is conducted on the flood tide over a kelp forest in the Lonsdale Bight between Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff in Port Phillip. This site also makes a great slack water dive.

During the drift you will encounter large fronds of kelp with broken sandstone reef, home to the Southern Rock Lobster (Crayfish) and Abalone. During the summer months, big schools of large Yellow Tail Kingfish can be seen.
