PIERS AND JETTIES
With water wrapping three separate sides of the Mornington Peninsula, there are piers and jetties abounding along both the western and eastern coastlines. Some of these structures are made of wood, others more modern alongside marinas and yacht moorings.
The annual spider crab migration occurs in autumn where thousands of these crustaceans cover the sandy bay floor and are easily visible for snorkelers around the pier at Rye. Fishing is allowed at most of the piers, and these waters are bountiful indeed.
