Fenwick Bight is an interesting dive site at the southern end of Wilsons Promontory, with South Point marking the western end of the bight. It faces south into the often wild seas of Bass Strait, and is located within the Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park. It's a very rewarding boat dive site for adventurous divers.
Fenwick Bight was named after Frederick Fenwick, an early settler (Inverloch Historical Society).
At Fenwick Bight the diving is on a fringe of granite boulders along the shoreline, ending in sand in moderate depths.
The eastern end of Fenwick Bight offers a little shelter and easy diving in good weather, but is still exposed to southerly and south-westerly winds. Out toward the point it is a little deeper with vertical walls and interesting small caves. The dive is a good place to see Barber Perch, Boarfish, Leatherjackets, Sea Carp (Marblefish) and Wrasse.
It's a very remote dive site location, only accessible with a dive boat.
