The Houndstooth and Keane’s Crack
Cape Queen Elizabeth – South Eastern Tip of Northern Bruny Island.

First dive is the Hounds Tooth itself based on weather and bathysphere/sounder once there

Our second dive will be around the infamous “Keanes Crack” just west of Houndstooth.

Dropping in on the south-eastern tip of The Houndstooth (at the northern end of Adventure Bay) the dive quickly falls away to ~30m.
At this depth incredible sponge gardens exist and huge rock buttresses covered in stunning zooanthids.
A gulch between The Houndstooth makes a lovely ascent and safety stop. This is at least as good if not better than Bicheno for scenery.

Putting a new spin on self-exploration our handsome GO John kindly lent his name to Keane’s Crack after he first penetrated it a few years ago.
This lovely blue water 25m deep underwater crevasse has eroded over a few million years specifically for TUDC diving purposes! a nice 50m swim stretching in under Bruny that leads to a network of underground tunnels.
These were last explored by the club in July 2016, and recently by a member Sparky Mather (thanks Sparky for the great photo)
Let’s go into Keane’s Crack and explore the tunnels where safe to do so – bring your torches

Launching from either Margate, Kingston or Tinderbox depending on weather so either way please bring warm clothing
