Overview
More
Our PADI 5 Star Dive Centre is situated on the Tasman Peninsula in southeastern Tasmania at only 1 hour from Hobart. Eaglehawk neck is the gateway to the spectacular Three Capes Track or the historical site of Port Arthur Convict settlement. We can offer you a great diversity of world-class scuba diving sites in this area, including the famous Cathedral Cave, the historic wreck SS “Nord”, or the magical sponge garden at Sisters’ rocks. Come and dive with very playful Fur Seals or meet the bizarre Weedy Seadragon. We have sites suitable for divers of all levels of experience from novice to technical. Our staff, several of whom are marine biologists, have extensive local knowledge from thousands of hours spent diving around the Tasmanian coast, and include professional underwater photographers and videographers.

Thoroughly enjoyed the awesome dive experiences. It was difficult to hold back the awe when diving along the most colourful soft coral walls I have ever seen. Followed by diving through rocks that support an abundant fish life and the iridescent colours of macro life...More
