Get excited, weather dependant we are going to hit up two of the Peninsula’s best.
Two of Tasmania’s iconic dive sites Cathedral Arch and Waterfall Bay are least to say epic. Beneath the amazing Tasman Peninsula cliffs this huge sea cave system (the largest in Australia) extends back into the sandstone.
With a maximum depth of 21m and large openings this is dive for bubblers of all experience levels.
Amazing fish life call these caverns home as well as many invertebrates that are normally found in much deeper water and weedy seadragons are common in the area.
After changing tanks we will head to Waterfall Bay as a second dive – you can expect some excellent walls to 18m, swim-throughs and bommies.
We’ll be doing two dives – dive cost is $50 if you bring your own tanks or $60 to use club tanks. Use of club Regs, BCD and weights are included in the cost of the dive if needed, you will need your own wetsuit, fins and mask.
We will be launching from Pirates Bay you can meet us there around 9.30 if you don`t require gear hire or if you do meet us at Olinda Shed at 7.15
Also bringing thermos and light lunch is not a bad idea 😉
This event is fully booked.
