PK 2019

Easter PK this year was a true UK diving experience. The trip had the perfect number of people and skills on it, we had enough kit, and everything was looking set up for an amazing week of diving. There was one aspect though which held us up – the UK Read more…

Mullion Island

There are plenty of bits and bobs to see round Mullion Island such as bits of wreckage and cannon, but usually the game is ‘diving roulette’, where the boat handler will find around 15m on the most sheltered side of the island, drop a shot and send in the troops! Read more…

Mullion Cove

When the wind changes towards a more easterly direction (and it inevitably does during a week at PK!) we head over to Mullion Cove.

Porthkerris Reef

The main bulk of the diving that happens on the Porthkerris trip is on Porthkerris Reef (shown above, at low tide from South Beach). It is enclosed in Porthkerris Bay, which has it’s own dive centre and café (a weighty boon for when the weather turns nasty). The reef runs Read more…
