At 20 metres there are a number of attractions including a catamaran, a caravan, and two barges. A 9 metre shelf on one side has a block house, boat, parcel van and a car, which are home to pike, perch and roach.
Onsite there is a shop, air station, toilets, and food.

I've been asked for mine a couple of times too at Dosthill, not a bad thing really.

Dosthill is easy to find and a good site for training for conditions in UK waters (without the currents). Sign in on entry is compulsory, but the onus surely is on the visitor to be truthfull about their diving qualifications, not site staff to be wearing high heeled jackboots (mmm!!! depends on the staff member :-)) Look elsewhere on this site- (Dorothea) where turning up , kitting up and jumping in is seen as a virtue,- you can't have it both ways. Dosthill has friendly staff, rescue and first aid capability, and is excellent as a training hole(Ok the porta-loos can be a bit iffy, but that's mostly down to the operator(if you know what I mean!)

the only place you could find anything would be on the back shelf. the max depth is about 9 meters here, so from six you would be able to see the boat, a car, the house and the parcel force van. of course there are loads of fish in the shallows over there too. THere is a platform at seven meters that has a buoy line on it, to the side of it is the car, and if you go off the back of it the pike hangs around there, and the koi carp too sometimes.

I snorkelled in Dosthill with my BSAC branch not long ago and completed my 6 metre dive, wandering is there anything good around at 6 metre depth mark that would be worth snorkelling down to?
