Wreck Hunting Pembrokeshire…

Today a small group of friends headed out on Scavenger Dive Boat to search for an elusive wreck! We got the slack forecast spot on, dropped a shot on the mark and waited for the slack to arrive.

Diving the LCG16 and the Caroline Wrecks

Today we headed out to the war grave wreck, LCG16 landing craft. We arrived just before slacks and shotted the wreck. We dived 35mtrs to the seabed and the shot was across a very large anchor.

Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone

Today started off looking like pants especially since we were planning on Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone! The forecast was force 4, the swell was up to 3mtrs around St Ann’s Head, but not breaking, so we thought we’d give it a look. It was a lumpy trip out to Skomer especially aroundContinue reading “Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone”
