What to Expect When Diving in Flinders Pier
"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 ?
good visibility, and nice to see the sea dragon
Lower platform that is about half meter submerged under high tide, makes an easy and awesome entry into the water. On this day after an over night rain, visibility was very poor at Blairgowrie pier. However, at Flinders we were able to see about 5-8 meters. Lots of sea grass and lots of fishes, ie. pike, Trevally, groups of baracouda. Some wreckage at the end of the pier, with rusted pipes sticking out. Difficult to guess what they were or why they were left there. A few old tyres and a fishmesn’s chair were at the bottom. We spotted only two sea dragons. Best dive of the day. Will be back.
