"Home to the weedy sea dragons "
Flinders Pier is home to the weedy sea dragons. It is not like any other piers it's just beautiful. The bottom is cover in green plants and sea grass. A giant sting ray also lives in the area as well as other marine life. There is also a small wreck in front of the pier to the left. The pier is also my club's Ocean Divers adopted Project Aware dive site so please pick up rubbish to keep this pier amazing ?

"Very nice underwater features "
Easy entry at high tide. Perfect Weather for Easter. A bit deeper than portera pier dive and colder. Long access from the parking, be ready to walk some time, best to have a trolley to help you carry your gear, the new pier is all in concrete. Once underwater, The sea grass difference between one side of the pier to the other is surprising but offers very good picture background. The dive is really about going in and out of the pier following it. Fish wise nothing out of the usual at first (goatfish, wrasses) and then, almost as promised, weedy sea dragons and stingrays including a massive one (>2m long I would say). Be wary of fishing lines and boats when going outside of the pier. We were recommended not to have a diving flag, which after going there turns out to save us a great deal of trouble if you make sure to surface under the piers and stay at the bottom otherwise.
