Dive Site: Mewstone Ridges

Location: Plymouth

Description: Reef

Depth: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)

Visibility: 8 - 12 metres (26 - 40 feet)

Rating: ***

Just 10 minutes south of Plymouth Breakwater by RIB, off the east coastline, lies the Mewstone - a distinct mountain shaped rock that shelves down to the seabed. This means the area has hardly any silt compared with the rest of the local area, leading to excellent visibility and a hotspot for dogfish. The rock formation creates small underwater canyons which are home to a lot of sealife making this a great place for taking photos. During spring tides you can often get a strong drift in this area as well.
