If in every diver’s dream is a magnificent voyage down the ocean, feasting the eyes with a poetic view of ocean forest, an array of brightly colored sea creatures, a long stretch garden of kelp, and exquisite shipwreck sites, then diving and exlporing Tasmania may be the divers’ long-standing dream.
Imagine serenely slipping into a blue-green backdrop as you navigate through the naturally remarkable caves, which are inhabited by diminutive and large ocean animals alike. The journey underwater even more presents some lyrical biologically structured reefs and corals of varying sizes and color, painting the marine environment with bright shades of red, orange, yellow, and green.
The Tasmanian underwater fantasy presents the extraordinary chance of viewing a number of world-class marine enchantments that you have probably seen only in books and photographs. Among the mystifying attractions are a multitude of unique and diverse oceanic creatures to glide with. Whales, dolphins, seahorses, sea dragons, sea snails, sponges, and other invertebrates spark up the seemingly infinite ocean with sharp and varied colors. Some of them might even play and tag along with you as you discover the marine environment below.
Adding to the superb oceanic view is the dramatic set-up of giant kelp that reaches up until 30 metres. Scattered along the floor of the ocean, giant kelp forests not only contribute to the extraordinary marine attractions, but provide as well shelter and playground for the ocean species. You can even touch a kelp’s leaf and discover for yourself some sea creatures that have been crawling on and off them.
In Tasmania, passing through the kelp forests and the underwater caves is an amazing water experience. Along the caves are tiny passages and tunnels that lead to the other side of the waters, through which coming across some species is an occasional event. The cave walls literally resemble a celebrated painter’s abstract because of the invertebrates covering the walls.
To complete the beautifully crafted Tasmanian oceanic environment, historic shipwrecks are gathered in some 480 remote and protected sites that most divers do not fail to visit. Incident of sinking ships in Tasmania were recorded to have had happened in the 17th century until the 20th century but some of these ships’ structures are still intact that they are hailed as one of Tasmania’s diving attractions.
Indeed, in Tasmania, the viewing possibilities underwater are endless that books and photos alone can’t actually make up for a better judgment and images. It is the duty of the eyes to see and the heart to feel the beauty and magnificent of Tasmanian waters and diving adventures.
