Water Temperature: 12°C in September

Description: 

Dive on the rocks along the west side of the bay, beware that on the Eastern side there are rather large boats passing by. The dive is an easy, shallow dive. Walk out until you get enough depth and then just follow the rocks on the west side of the bay out. There are boulders covered in kelp with tunicates hanging off them. There is a lot of life and fish swimming in the kelp forest. The coarse sandy bottom is also covered in sealife with flatfish, crabs and sand gobies. If it is sunny the effect of the sun filtering through the kelp forest is very nice. Also, not too far you can see some yellow buoys, which presumably mark positions of fish farming cages, so might be worth going to have a look.
