PLACES TO DIVE UK COASTAL DIVES

MENAI STRAIT

We finned out from the shore and down, watched by the many small eyes of almost completely buried shore crabs, peering out from under the sandy slope, and arrived on a mussel bed. At only a few metres' depth, a whole new and unexpected vista had appeared. The mussels gaped as they filtered the nutrient-rich water, while among them shore and edible crabs foraged, looking for tasty pickings and trying the smaller mussels for crushability. Gliding butterfish appeared to flow their long slippery bodies over the shells as they hugged the contours of the mussel bed......read more

the wreck between the two bridges is called the conway. I have dived that wreck several times. If you miss the wreck , it can be a very relaxing drift dive

We dived the wreck in between the bridges some time ago lots of bits and bobs to collect, lots of brass and copper all with the goverment crows foot mark on them, the current is extremely srtong over the platters, so much so that your hood starts to billow out and your DV hose waggles violently, good drift dive only 5 meters from the shore, when you have finished get out and walk back to the start, the access is very bad for a shore dive from the mainland
