Dive 78

Pinnacles to 28.8 m/94 ft

A glorious dive. Vis was astounding. Sweeping valleys of rock pinnacles were covered in anemones, starfish, soft corals and more. It was a pastel version of the Red Sea - lilacs, purples, pinks and pale oranges could be seen instead of the vivid deep reds, blues and greens of a tropical dive. But it was the clarity of the water (which would have been even clearer if it hadn't been for the algae) and the concentration and diversity of the life which made this one of the finest British dives I have enjoyed to date. The three of us didn't even need to huddle close together - we could still see each other clearly when separated by several metres. Saw a huge sea bass as well as countless other fish. A treasure of a dive.
