If not we will pick up from Mevagissey Harbour. The decision of where to pick up will be made a few days before the event begins.

Dives marked 'if enough interested' are extra dives we can do if we can get at least 6 people interested.
  2. 2. Dive sites: Gwineas Reef & Ardongorm wreck. A shallow reef system around a rocky outcrop. It drops off quite slowly around the pinnacle, on the north side are the remains of the Ardongorm wreck. The Ardongorm sank in 1948 in thick fog, it has since been heavily salvaged. A great little dive with plenty to see. Depths vary from the surface to over 20m, if you want to swim a bit. The wreck is at around 10m. Gwineas Reef Eastern Pinnacles The two Eastern Pinnacles on the Gwinear Reef are around 10m and 12m deep, dropping off to over 20m in depth on the north side between the pinnacle. Curran Vean Reef. A spectacular reef that is almost as good as the Dodman but without the strong potential currents. Covered in a wide variety of life, this is for the camera and squidge lovers. Varying depths from 25- 13m. Black Head Reef Just off a headland close to shore, is a slowly sloping reef with lots of gullies to explore. Maximum depth is 15m unless you swim a long way. Kantoeng Wreck Just outside Fowey is the Kantoeng wreck. The part we dive is the dredging arm, this was the largest bucket dredger of it's time, when it sank in 1937 . Lots of interesting shapes and things to explore. Popular for spotting Conger Eels and large Pollack. Maximum depth is around 15m Bellows Reef. Just off the Dodman headland, we need slack for this dive. As much life as any reef in the U.K. Depths vary from 10-25m
