Since 1916, the area to the west of Little Betsy Island has been used for the disposal of unwanted ships. This has created a huge concentration of 18-35m wreck dives very close to Hobart. The wrecks are very interesting, and most of the hulls are intact and home to a vast array of marine life. The floating bridge sections are covered in massive yellow and white Jewel Anemones. The wreck of the S.S “Leura” also attracts hordes of school fish.
We’ll set out early afternoon for our day dive. The plan is to drop a shot line and large buoy on our wreck of choice, do a nice long recon dive, come back into Tinderbox for a quick BBQ, heading back out to the buoy for a DEEP DIVE ON THE WRECK AT DUSK; see if we can’t time it so we get to see the changing of the guard between the day and night critters 🙂
This is an advanced dive, we would recommend at least ten night dives under your belt, your dive officer David Page is very happy to have a chat with you if you have any questions!
Most of the wrecks are reasonably safe to enter, but you will need torches (tick if you want to rent one).
Water and surface interval lollies will be provided!
ADVANCED OPEN WATER WITH 20+ RECENT DIVES REQUIRED.
Nitrox is available from our mates at Southern Tas Divers, please let me know if you wish to bubble EANx and your fav D.O. will organise.
