Nepean Wall is part of a large boomerang shaped trench which runs East to West just outside Port Phillip Heads on the Point Nepean side. To go over the wall you swim South from the shot. Descending to your desired depth you can swim in either direction along the wall, but it is important that you return to the shot for your ascent as the current here turns very quickly. It is also a good idea to keep your bottom time shorter on this dive.

This dive is only done on the ebb turning to flood so that at the end of your dive the current will bring you back into Port Phillip. The wall along here is amazing with lots of soft coral and sponges but slightly different coverage than the Lonsdale Wall side. The odd Crayfish is collected here too. The fish life is amazing and this quite often brings Seals into the area.
