The goal on this Rye Scallop Drift dive is to enable enough ground to be covered to ensure you can fill your catch bag with great big fat juicy scallops. The scallop beds move around a little, and there is no guarantee you will see them straight away. But rest assured you will see them.

The Rye Scallop Drift dive site itself is in Capel Sound, Port Phillip, off the bay beach of Rye. It's not too far away from a large marker pylon with '13' on it and a structure of pylons with seals. The bottom is flat sand with Scallops, Stingrays, Sea Squirts, Flat Head, and Large Spider Crabs. (The crabs are not suitable for eating.)
