Description: First get to Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania. The first large bay from Pirates Bay (the right side of Eaglehawk neck) as you go south is Waterfall Bay. Horseshoe cave is located almost directly underneath the water fall, which is at the southern side of the bay, in from the point where millions of brilliant dives are.
The dive in some ways is typical of the region, as you would expect. The interesting bit is the cave, which from memory goes about 20 metres into the rock face of the cliff. The cave is ladder-like in structure -- you can go in one side and out the other with views through the two parts the odd (three from memory?) hole. Nice dive, and quite a buzz in a swell, if you are into that sort of thing. The cave, by the way, is not that big -- only around 4mLocation: TasmaniaDepth: up to 25m or 82'Method: Snorkel Dive, Scuba, Hookah, Cave Dive and Technical or Gas DiveType: Shallow, Deep, Cave Diving (Qualifications Required), Night dive spot, Mention in Description and Boat DiveBest Time: When tide is coming in, When tide is going out, Between tides, Day dive, Morning Dive and Evening DiveTerrain: Edges that drop off to deeper water, Patchy reef, Sand and Ruble, Flat bottom, Caves and tunnels to swim throughConditions: SwellExperience Level: AllMarine Life: Kelp forest, Sponges, Anemones, Bryozoans, Brachiopods, Crays, Crabs, Commensal Shrimps, Nudibranches, Abalone, Sea Stars, Basket Stars, Sea Urchins, Dolphins, Sharks, Numerous Fish/Fishes, Sea Dragons, Sea Horses, Eels and OctopusMarine Management: Some species in this dive are protected.
