Porthkerris – August 2019

Over the bank holiday weekend 13 divers, 1 non diver, 2 kids and a dog descended on Porthkerris for a long weekend of Rib and shore diving.

Day 1: The weather was against us so the boat only managed to get out once but rest of us still managed to have a great shore dive swimming amongst all the gullies and rocky outcrops just a short swim from the beach

Day 2: The wind and changed direction so the boat went out 3 times. I had two great wreck dives one on the Volney and another on the Mohegan, both are heavily broken up but there was loads of life on both of them.

Day 3: With the weather still behaving all the boat dives went ahead as planned. I dived a reef called Pen Win which was covered in jewel anemones, with a good scattering of sea fans. The last dive was in the Helford River, to my great surprise the viz was great, there were lots of scallops and a Thornback Ray, apparently they’re quite common in this area but it was the first one I’d ever seen so I was quite excited.
