The Tasman Peninsula region offers huge caves, tunnels and canyons, particularly in Waterfall Bay, an area well known for its sea caves. The largest, Cathedral Cave, which is the biggest sea cave system in Australia, consists of a massive entrance (maximum water depth 21m), extending back into smaller caverns with narrow tunnels and cross passages. The walls are covered with brightly coloured invertebrates normally found in much deeper water.
The deep water (over 25m depth) sponge gardens found on the rock walls and pinnacles are very diverse and make fantastic dives. These walls feature brightly coloured sponges, soft corals and fields of sea whips. Being surrounded by huge schools of fish – mostly Butterfly Perches – is common in those locations.
Diving these sites at any depth provides excellent photographic opportunities and is always unforgettable.
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.
