Rye Pier (Rye Pier)

Rye Pier is a popular fishing and snorkelling spot, featuring a lower platform and seating for visitors. Boating Restrictions do apply. Public berthing is available on Rye Pier - please abide by signposted limits (vessels should be attended).

Rye Pier is an excellent day and night dive site offering beautiful underwater vistas and some of the warmest water in Port Phillip Bay. Diving at high tide with calm waters offers the best scenery. Underwater it is predominantly sandy around the pier, with small patches of sea grass and once out from the pier it is pure sand bed. Be sure to take out a dive flag as there is often boat traffic.

There is a boat ramp nearby, a terrific playground for the children and calm waters with wide beaches for families to enjoy.

Jumping and diving off the pier and other structures is prohibited for public safety. There are shallow areas and often unexpected submerged objects.

Ensure dogs are kept on lead at all times and clean up after your dog.
