Details: Part two of our dive trip in tassie was up to Bicheno. Bicheno is a beautiful little sea side down protected in all directions by granite outcrops. The granite extends into the water, and the outcrop known as Governor Island is what forms the great diving at Bicheno. Between the land and Governor island is a small channel or Gulch that forms a natural harbour and is the home of the local boat ramp. Launching the boat from here, its a short 2 minute journey around the other side of the small granite island and your at some awesome dive sites in up to 40m only 200m from shore.

The first dive was at The Canyon. An underwater valley betwen two massive granite boulders. The smaller boulders on the seabed are covered with sea whips and sponge gardens. While the walls of the larger boulders are covered in zooanthids.
