Ile des Phoques is an exposed rock between Maria and Schouten Islands, about 10 nautical miles east of Little Swanport. Considered one of Tasmania’s most exciting dives, Isle de Phoque is home to a large seal colony and is riddled with caves. The caves are covered with zoanthids and are usually occupied by schools of fish. Most of the caves start at 20 meters and several have light entering through the roof.
Numbers are limited so get in quick!
Bring lunch and supplies, as we will be completing two dives on the Isle!
This dive is very weather dependent – if the weather isn’t favourable we’ll switch to a more protected site. We will get wet that day!
