I went scuba diving here on 8/26/2017. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 61-65°F/16-18°C.
Fantastic Dive Site, perfect for, but not limited, to new divers.
Parking can be busy, so get there early if you want to park on the Pier, otherwise there is a car park just up the hill, that’s very close by. Depths are 4-5 metres at the end of the pier. It take around 20 minutes to reach the end of the pier at a reasonable pace. Sand and sea grasses to the sides of the piers, rocky underneath, but watch for boats mooring if you stray outside! An SMB is a good idea. Toilets, Dive Shop, small shop are on site.
