Scuba Diving Southwest Coast of England, UK, Europe
Dive Site: Tinker's Shoal
Depth: 14 metres max (46 feet)
Visibility: 4 - 20 metres (13 - 65 feet)
Tinker's shoal is a reef south of Plymouth Breakwater. The seabed is fairly rocky with large kelp growths, making it the home to lots of sealife. This is a great place to put newly qualified divers down on their own, being relatively safe and having plenty to see. There is a lot of treasure here in terms of objects that must have been cast out of the ships that have past through these waters to Plymouth over the years. The keen eye might even find something valuable, although I normally just find the odd toothbrush!
