2009/01/20 Diving in Tasmania, Australia
π 2009-01-20 00:00 in Diving
Since we were in Tasmania, we of course had to use the opportunity to do some diving. Unfortunately, even in the middle of summer the weather wasn't that warm. It was nice enough for going around, but the water was a somewhat cold 15 degrees C, or about the same than we get in Monterey.
That meant reasonably thick 7mm suits, which when they were properly sized and zippered, were good enough for me, but were taking their toll on Jennifer.

We started with a dive in Bichenot, which was actually a very nice short dive. Among other things, it was the first time we got to see a sea horse or sea dragons (thanks to the guide who we hired to come with us).

We then went back a few days later by EagleHawk Neck, which while closer to Hobart where we were staying, wasn't as good diving for us, even with a dive boat. I think we were however somewhat unfortunate on the weather that day (windy, and it cut us off from at least one dive site we could have used). We did get to see a few sea dragons on the first dive, and absolutely nothing on the second dive unless you count sea weeds.... Oh well...
