At Cape Reamur, the coast swings to the north-west and begins the 50 km long, sweeping arc that becomes Portland Bay.

McKechnies Craigs Bommie sits in the southern portion and rises to within a few metres of the surface. The entire south-west edge of the reef complex is bounded by a sand edge ranging from 8 metres at the northern end to 20 metres south of the bommie.

The extent and variety of diving here has to be seen to be believed. Bare tumbled boulders along the deeper sand edge, through to thick stands of kelp and cray weed. The location has been a huge contributor to the commercial abalone catch for many decades.
