Dive Site: Barn Pool

Location: Inside the breakwater, Plymouth

Description: Deep wall dive

Depth: 10 - 30 metres + (30 - 100 feet)

Visibility: 1 - 12 metres (3 - 40 feet)

Rating: *

Given that most of Plymouth sound is in about 14m of water, Barn Pool offers deep diving very close to the shore. It shelves off gradually from the beach on the west coast to 14m, where it drops rather more steeply to form a wall dive. I only went to 25m, but in the murk it looked like it would go significantly deeper. A silty area with not much in the way of life except plenty of crabs.
