Entrance Deep is the very deepest dive spot known of anywhere in Victoria, being the bottom of the ancient River Yarra just inside the Port Phillip Heads in the main shipping channel.
The actual Entrance Deep spot where 103 metres deep has been reached is just 5-metres square. It takes incredible luck to get a shot line down 103 metres into this small 5-metre by 5-metre square target.
At 103 metres deep this is not a dive for the faint-hearted. It's very black, barren and rocky, with incredibly treacherous currents. The ascent must be started while the tide is still coming in, slack water is very short, and the ascent must be back up the shot for as long as possible as the outgoing tide will quickly push you back over Rip Bank with a minimum depth of 20 metres. Pick up will be outside Port Phillip Heads.
