Only half an hour from Hobart is the Tinderbox Marine Reserve: a colourful world of marine invertebrates and giant string kelp, a plant that can grow a metre a week. Underwater Adventures Tasmania provides you with an opportunity to explore this extraordinary and unique underwater world year-round, whether you're an experienced scuba diver or beginner snorkeller. We also visit the rainforests of the sea - the kelp forests on the outside of Bruny Island, as well as a range of other dive sites in SE Tasmania. Your boat for the day is a 10m Powercat with cabin, flybridge and all facilities for your comfort: hot and cold running water, toilet, hand-shower, stove and fridge. We depart from the Hobart waterfront, so you don't have to spend time or money travelling to a dive centre and you get to relax and enjoy the scenic trip down the Derwent River to the dive site. All scuba and snorkelling gear, including warm wetsuits, is available for hire and we load it onto the boat in advance for you. We carry charts and guidebooks on board for those who're keen to know where they're going and what they're looking at, and we provide refreshments using local seasonal produce.
