Welcome to M14790, situated at Eaglehawk Neck in southeast Tasmania approximately 75km from Hobart. The landform in this part of the island results in a great diversity of scuba diving sites. From the famous Waterfall Bay caves, the historic wreck of the SS Nord with huge schools of fish, Giant Kelp forests and bizarre seadragons.
A PADI 5 Star facility we offer courses from Discover Scuba Diving, a one day adventure activity, through to Assistant instructor. Our staff, several of who are marine biologists, has extensive local knowledge from thousands of hours spent diving around the Tasmanian coast.
The M14790 (EDC) was formed by Mick Baron (diver since 1970) and Gary Myors (diving since 1967)in 1991. David Perkins joined the team in 2001 as a director and Training Manager.World renown Marine Biologist/underwater photgrapher Karen Gowlett-Holmes joined the team in 2002 giving added expertise to this very professional group.
It is situated on the spectacular Tasman Peninsula, 80 km from Hobart - Tasmania's capital - and 45 minutes from the airport. Our operation caters for all requirements of the visiting scuba diver. Our services include boat dives, accommodation, air fills, gear hire, courses, dive shop, and much more.
Most of our dive sites are accessible only by boat. Shore diving is limited due to the extremely rugged and very photogenic coastline with cliffs towering from sea level to 1000 feet. The EDC is an Accredited Tourism Business by the Tourism Council Tasmania.
