Hi All,

Depending on the Sydney to Hobart boat traffic we may need to change the dive site, likely somewhere near Bruny


Hey divers, let’s head over to the Iron Pot lighthouse and second on Bruny Island (to be decided on the day – Bull Bay/Dennes Point etc. weather dependent).

Meet at the Olinda Grove dive shed at 7:00am! We will then go to Margate Jetty (Dru Point) to launch the boat.

For those chasing Christmas Crayfish, please ensure your licences are up to date:


Iron Pot is a small flat sandstone island at the entrance to the Derwent river. It is part of the Betsey Island Group. “The Iron Pot” hosts  the second oldest lighthouse built in Australia and is the oldest original tower in Australia.

Depths of 2-15m – this is an excellent dive for any diver. Please bring a torch (if you have one) and lunch/water for the boat.

If you need a lift to the dive shed click ‘reply all’ on the email I send out and someone will be able to help you.





Anyone unwell must not attending club events.
Club dive gear to be washed with approve solution at the end of dive.
Hand sanitiser will be available at the dive.
Please maintain social distancing of 1.5m wherever possible during the event.
