When approaching Apollo Bay watch out for Henty Reef. There are also large beds of kelp near the entrance. There is a new marina in the harbour but it is often fully occupied.( See recent comments from Alan Duncan below).
The harbour has a good depth with at least 3.5 meters of water at the wharf at low tide. The entrance silts up but is dredged.
You can tie up at the wharf on the starboard side after entering
the harbour. A fee is payable, contact the Harbour Master on:

A very attractive town which provides a convenient stop over when travelling to Tasmania or the eastern states. It can be reached in a day's sail from Port Fairy and in summer months one can day sail from here to King Island.
The town itself has every facility. Several pubs, good shopping, fine restaurants and a slipway. There is even a golf course between the town and the shore.
A public toilet and showers are available just below the fishermen's coop. Alternatively hot showers can be negotiated with one of the many motels on the foreshore.
Fuel and water are available from the wharf , contact the fisherman's coop overlooking the harbour.
