Mornington Pier (aka Mornington Jetty) is at Schnapper Point in Mornington, Victoria on the Mornington Peninsula, between Royal Beach (to the south) and Shire Hall Beach (to the south-east). The seawall and pier runs north-east some 200 metres from the rocky cliff forming Schnapper Point into Port Phillip. Mornington Pier is 70 km (70 minutes by car) south of the Melbourne CBD and is very popular with divers, snorkellers, underwater photographers, especially on days when the ocean sites of the Mornington Peninsula are blown out.
First built in the 1850s, Mornington Pier and Jetty is a regularly used dive training site and a relaxing after work night dive site for many Melbourne based divers. It's a site that is usually still diveable when the wind is up just a bit. But it's also a busy wharf and care needs to be taken when boats are active. Divers and snorkellers should stay away from the boats sheltering on the eastern side.
