hey there everyone,names Amar... been really excited to start spear diving, have all my gear ready to go and have gone out about 3-4 times around altona, not going too far out yet as im just starting to get comfortable with it all, bought a boat recently and have been fishing for the snapper just want to get abit of help and tips on when to dive and where regarding weather conditions.
Im in the inner north western suburbs of Melbourne and wondering if theres many people or clubs around here.

Would love just abit of help even on the behaviour of PPB.


Hi Amar,

Good to see that you're keen on spearing. There are 3 main spearfishing clubs in Victoria. Southern Freedivers, Geelong freedivers and Club Spearfish.
If you are keen on pure freediving also, there is a Melbourne Freedivers club.
Southern freedivers hold club meetings in Noble Park, Geelong freedivers are based out in Geelong (obviously) and Club spearfish hold their meetings at the Ocean Suits in Hallam.

Southern freedivers focuses on competition and social dives and we find this is a good way to learn targeting a variety of fish.
Feel free to pop into one of our meetings, attend a competition dive (don't need to be competitive to enter) and i'm sure the other clubs will be happy for you to attend their meetings too.

In terms of port phillip bay, its mostly affected by the wind and not affected by swell much. Offshore/low winds are ideal and help with visibility. I.e. Northeries will be better when diving at the top of the bay. The closer you get to the bottom of the bay, the water will be affected by the tides and could have a ripping current on a big tide change. Boats and jetski's are common, especially on the flat days that are good for diving, so ensure you have a float with a dive flag and always dive with a buddy.

Hope this helps and happy spearing!

Hi everyone, my name is Eldon and I’m new to spear fishing. I’ve snorkeled and dove for scallops before but have never tried spear fishing. Im planning a trip up the great ocean road in Early March so hopefully all my gear arrives by then so I can hopefully catch a feed for me and the missus lol. Also been researching some of the spear fishing clubs so I can hook up with some experienceed divers to learn a thing or 2. Cheers everyone stay safe and have fun

Hey Fellas
I'm new to the game and I'm based in Mornington
have only been out 3 or 4 times but have been fairly lucky I reckon with better fish each time.
I'm only mucking about in shallows and happier doing that atm but need to meet up with other spearos in the area as I reckon I'd feel a bit more comfortable heading deeper.
Hopefully picking up a boat in the not too distant future too so should be fun.
will try to make it to the meeting at end month

Hi all,

My name is Morgan, I got a first feel of spearfishing 4 years ago back in my country (France) but I haven't practiced since I moved to Australia about 3 years...I miss it and am keen to jump into it again.
I went to the club meeting on tuesday 30 of Oct to touch base with people, was great to see how active the club is.

Is it possible for a newbie like me to join the Sorrento comp of the 10-11 Nov on a more social aspect? I mean joining the team and get into the water without actually participate to the competition itself.

How does it all work? I reckon I should become member, pay the fee and then???

Cheers, see you soon in the water,
