Cornwall, possibly the country’s premier diving location, offers the combination of a temperate climate along with a coastline washed by the clear, clean waters of the Atlantic Gulf Stream.

This ensures good underwater visibility all year around. Basking Sharks are regular visitors to the Cornish coastline, along with Porpoises and Dolphins.

The Manacles
This area of reef covering approximately one square mile, is an abundance of shipwrecks and reefs ranging from 8m to 80m, catering for divers of all levels. There has been more loss of shipping here than on any other comparable reef on the entire south coast of Britain, with over 110 ships and more than 1,000 lives lost.

Other dives sites in South and West Cornwall
The Manacles is a particulary well-known diving area, but Cornwall has many other fantastic locations offering great dive sites, including the Lizard Pennisula, Penzance & Mounts Bay, Hayle & St.Ives Bay, and we visit all of them.
