Start Point West Beach Boat Ramp
End Point West Beach Boat Ramp
Distance 2.0km

Broken bottom is part of the old shore line and consists of a series of naturally formed rock piles spread over a large area.

Located 2kms north west of Glenelg, and in approximately 10m of water the best access is by boat from the West Beach boat ramp.

Fish life can be sparse to prolific, with no set pattern.

If fish life is sparse you can investigate the rock piles, sea tulips and razor shells. The colours of the sponges and flora is exceptional. Many spider crabs inhabit this area and the occasional ray and flat heads may be found.

At times your whole dive can be taken up swimming amongst vast schools of sea pike and silver drummer.
