Plymouth April 2022

Waves Shape

In April we finally made our club trip to Plymouth after a couple of postponements due to Covid restrictions.  Six club members were joined by a couple from Saints divers and we took advantage of the dive weekend package with In Deep staying at Mount Batten centre.

Our first dive was on the wreck of the Persier.  Sadly the visibility was affected by an early plankton bloom but it was still a nice dive with lots of pink sea fans on the hull, white anemones and conger eels tucked away amongst the wreckage.

We had a drift for the second dive where we spotted a few crawfish, sea cucumbers and a huge array of squid eggs attached to the underside of the rocks.

A trip to Plymouth wouldn’t be complete without a trip over to the Barbican for a few drinks and food.   We ate at an excellent Turkish restaurant in the city centre before a wander along the Hoe, a night cap and a taxi back,  as the ferry timetable was still on its winter schedule.

The next day we dived the wrecks of the Rosehill and the James Eagan.   Again visibility was very snotty but we still managed to spot the gun on the Rosehill and the cute tompot blennies poking out of the James Eagan wreckage.

Pretty sure we all enjoyed ourselves despite the vis and we immediately booked up to come again next year.
