Dive holidays and travel opportunities

Southern Tasmanian Divers helps arrange dive holidays in exotic locations in Australia and the South Pacific.


We particularly recommend the following scheduled dive packages:

Galapogos Islands – June 2020

Paired with the splendid array of marine life, the excellent visibility makes diving here exceptional. There are dives on many of the islands, though several islands stand out as particularly excellent places to take the plunge.

Darwin Island is by far the most popular. Here you will see most of the unique creatures you are craving, as well as some whimsical geologic formations. El Arco is renowned as one of the best dives in the world, so be sure to add it to your to do list.

On Isabela Island you can swim with sea lions and penguins in a stunning environment. Don’t miss Roca Redonda, where sharks teem around an underwater volcano

MV Emporer Echo, Egypt – September 2020

Sharm el Sheik. Located at the northern end of the Red Sea, on the tip of the Sinai Desert, it has grown from a desert outpost to a bustling city home to all manner of watersports and activities over the past 20 years. You can ride a camel at sunset, visit Mt Moses, St Katherine Monastery, or the ancient City of Petra just across the border in Jordan. Come and join world class diving on an Emperor liveaboard cruise to dive sites from nearby to the deep south of Fury Shoals and St Johns.

Koror, Palau – May 2020

The Republic of Palau is Micronesia’s western most archipelago in the Caroline Islands chain. The tightly clustered Palau archipelago, consists of eight principal islands and more than 250 smaller ones covering an area of 459 square kilometres.

Palau is the home to one of the world’s unique phenomena, the Rock Islands. The Rock Islands are Palau’s crowning glory. More than 200 of these jungle-topped knobs of limestone dot the waters for a 20 mile (35km) stretch south of Koror. Their bases, having been worn away by tidal action and grazing sea creatures, are narrower than their tops, causing them to look like emerald-hued mushrooms rising from the turquoise sea.

Another phenomenon is Jellyfish Lake where you can snorkel in the clear water lake filled with nearly two million jellyfish. Here the salt water from the ocean seeps through fissures in the limestone into the lake, whilst other marine life is kept out. Due to a lack of predators the jellyfish have evolved to a point of having no ability to sting.

Palau has three ocean currents converging in its waters to bring in some of the most varied and dazzling marine life in the world. Palau is also blessed with a rich diversity of plants & birdlife. Soft sand beaches, tropical rainforest, spectacular waterfalls and hidden lakes offer a splendid backdrop to Palau’s fascinating geological formations, significant archaeological sites and world renown underwater wonders.
