Besides its fantastic coastline and its stunning National parks, Tasmania can offer wicked cold water dives compared in beauty with others across the globe.

Tasmania or the Tasman Peninsula is Australia's smallest province and largest island located in the south of Australia. Its climate is nice during summer and quite cool in winter and attracts thousands of tourists each year. Devonport, St Helens and its capital Hobart are must sees. You can visit the ruins at Port Arthur, there are beautiful rainforest hikes, huge waterfalls, pretty coastal walks, blue lakes and fierce blowholes. Unexpectedly, it is even said by travellers that Wineglass Bay is one of the world's best beaches. Some of the national parks worth visiting are Frecyinet, Cradle Mountain and Tasman National Park.
Don't expect coral reefs compared to the Great Barrier Reef; diving in Tasmania is cold water diving, often with dry-suit and with a complete different underwater marine life. You can meet seals, dolphins, weedy sea dragons, colourful sponges and huge kelp forests. Popular dive sites are the caves in Waterfall Bay, diving with Australian Fur Seals near Hippolyte Rock or wreck diving on the SS Nord.
