Franklin Point Reef is easily one of the most interesting and relatively easy access diving and snorkelling sites you will find around the southern Mornington Peninsula area. Best dived on slack going to an ebb tide. This will allow for at least a 60-minute dive. When you feel the current head for shore.
It's also possible to dive Franklin Point Reef on slack for a flood tide, but best to start at Portsea Pier and head towards Point Franklin. If you overshoot head for shore and exit at Shelley Beach on the eastern side of Point Franklin.
There are at least three dive options to take:
Remember to plan your dive with compass directions recorded first. Note that this is a high boat traffic area, particularly during the summer months, so always carry an SMB and launch it prior to surfacing. You can also carry a dive marker buoy.
Franklin Point Reef is just a 15-minute drive from The Scuba Doctor Dive Shop. Please drop in and catch up with us before and/or after your dive.
