Port Davey

I voyaged there on the good ship “Southern Cross” a traditional Scottish built motorsailer with twin Gardner diesels. We departed the d’Entrecasteux Channel and dipped down into the Southern Ocean for the westward passage to Port Davey. This is the gateway to the remote and heritage listed islands and land of southwest Tasmania. Port Davey is home to interesting and diverse sea life, which has adapted to the dual habitat of a surface layer of tannic and brown freshwater, below which is crystal clear salt water. I will write further notes describing the exotic sea creatures and plants of this unique underwater world. For now please see the video footage I have taken below.
