There are schools of bass and pollack, friendly cuckoo wrasse and plenty of crustaceans whilst the pink sea fans seem in far better condition than those on the more-often dived sites. The white shell gravel that is characteristic of the Eddystone reefs reflects the light to make the location superb for photography and its distance offshore means that visibility is often excellent. Diving suits all from the shallow kelp-covered gullies on the north side to the rocky reefs on the south, where drop-offs reach depths of around 40m and boulders as big as houses can be explored.
