General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Pouthoustock and Porthkerris beaches. Both shingle beaches - BE Carefull its very easy to get bogged down. Even Landrovers and such - be wise and take 20 or 30M of good rope.
Notes :

The Vase Rock once stood several Metres proud of the surface until the SS Mohegan, slightly off course struck her. The Vase Rock is now just a few metres below the surface on low water springs even RIBs and inflats should be carefull. The Vase rock is an underwater mountain peak dropping off to 40 odd M once past the 5-7M mark the kelp more or less stops and the abundance of life opens up. This site has one of the most diverse sets of Jewel anomea so close to shore. Large numbers of Cuckcoo wrasse also abound.
