4 UBUC’ers braved the cold to head down to Chesil Cove for a day’s shore diving on Sunday! The sea was completely flat calm (in hindsight we should have got the boats out). Vis was about 3-5 m depending on depth, temperature around 12 degrees.

We did two dives, one in the morning before lunch and one after lunch. The two buddy pairs took it in turns to each go in and shore marshall. We saw lots of things including catsharks, plenty of varieties of crabs, blennies, pollack and of course wrasse.

Whilst chatting to some other divers, we got some transits for the Royal Adelaide, which is to head over the bridge, take a right and follow the path until you hit the concrete block where the grass starts. Go straight up and over the ridge from there and the wreck should be about 100m out. There’s a trig point to the left as you get to the top of the ridge.
