Diving in Fortescue Bay
One of the most coveted Tasmanian diving experiences is through the towering kelp forests found along areas of the east coast. These plants can grow as much as a metre a day, reaching heights of nearly 50 metres in some conditions. The clear water of Fortescue Bay, on the east coast of the Tasman Peninsula, is one of the most accessible spots to dive the kelp forests, but there are other great dives around here too, including on shipwrecks and near seal colonies.
