This site is amazing, one of the only places where we often get "gin clear" water. Depth is deceptive and it is very easy to go deeper than you intended. However the variety of life is good all round the huge granite boulders and walls that drop right down. It is wholely possible to do a shallow dive here staying in the the lee of the current, sheltering between the rocks that rise up to form the base of the new Eddystone Lighthouse. However we do count this as an Advanced dive and only those confident in their ability should dive here.
Max Depth: Anything from 8m-60m depending on where you drop and what you want.
Viz: Generally 10-12m, at best 20m+ although bad weather will make it worse.
Orientation: The lighthouse leads down to the sea bed in every direction. Get a good feel for the rocks and direction of deep and shallow areas before you drop.
None, please use a shot for descent and a Delayed SMB for the ascent. Known for strong currents delayed SMBs per diver are essential.

Life you could see
Below 18m, Sea Fans, Rose Coral and Yellow Sponges. Across the whole site you can see carpets of Jewel Anemones, sometimes find lobsters, crayfish, along side dogfish and wrasse. There are plenty of sea urchins and starfish of all types and sea cucumbers everywhere. This is one of the few sites where Smooth Hound Sharks are known to live. Only last July a group of divers were diving with dolphins and sun fish here.
