Buckle up for an amazing day of diving out of Eaglehawk Neck!
We will launch from Port Arthur and head straight to Dart Bank for a nice deep exploratory dive! Pretty sure this will be a first visit for TUDC, so get on board for what will hopefully be a new favourite site!
On the way back to Port Arthur we will do a much shallower second dive off of Cape Raoul.
Dart Bank will be a 40m deep dive and Cape Raoul approximately 20ish metre depth – so this trip is restricted to Advanced Divers only. Divers also please ensure you have deep diving experience and some cold water experience in the last 12 months. Dart Bank drops deeper than 40 metres, and is in a location exposed to swell and wind, so we have to ensure our divers are experienced enough to handle potentially difficult conditions and to ensure you don’t exceed 40 metres. Dive Officers will need to be able to verify your experience before the dive.
Please have at minimum 35 dives, with at least 7 dives below 25m and at least 2 dives in the last 12 months before signing up.
This site is also approximately a 30 kilometre boat dive to the first site, so if you suffer from sea sickness, be prepared with your pills before hand! 🙂
Look forward to seeing you there!
This event is fully booked.
