Sealers Cove at Wilsons Promontory is a safe site suitable for scuba diving from a boat and snorkelling from the shore. It features small boulders gently sloping down to a sandy bottom at a depth of 15 metres.
Sealers Cove lies in the Wilsons Promontory Marine Park facing north-east into Bass Strait. It was named by George Bass in January 1798 because it was used by sealers.
Sealers Cove is a picturesque, circular cove bordered by 300 to 500 metre high forested headlands. The sandy beach is backed by a vegetated foredune, then the 1 to 2 km wide Sealers Swamp. The Sealers Cove walking track crosses the swamp to reach the southern end of the beach, where there is a camping area next to Sealers Creek. The beach sweeps around for 2 km, running south, then east in the southern corner. The southern end is sheltered by Horn Point and the low waves here allow extensive tidal flats to fill the corner. Up the beach, wave height increases to average almost 1 m. During higher wave events, a series of several equally spaced rips cut the northern bar.
