KEY TO MAP
- New Fee (possible Shore Dive):
On the way over to the West End, New Fee is accessible via a set of steep steps adjacent to the bathing shelters visible from the road. The site, following the Duggerna Rocks reef, is probably the most weather-proof one but it is a shallow dive.
- Myles Creek (possible Shore Dive):
This north-facing inlet on Duggerna Rocks is accessible at low tide Rocks.
- Doctor’s Rock (Shore Dive):
Walking across Duggerna Rocks with full gear on is compensated by a pleasant entry point and an interesting dive. More pain at the end, however, when another hike is in store, often on slippy, moss-covered rocks.
- Diamond Rocks:
A spectacular dive when you hit the reef right. Beware of a fast swell. Underwater rock features are breathtaking. Watch out for the ‘snake pit’ of crabs. Ahhhh!
- Bishop’s Island:
A sheltered dive when winds are south-westerly.
- Black Rock (Shore Dive):
On a full tide, especially a spring one, this can be a great inner bay dive.
- Middle Rock:
Always a great dive, Middle Rock is made for a gradual ascent from 40m if you want, with something to see all the way up to 6m.
- Outer Rock:
Only for the curious, so it is said.
- George’s Head:
Two sites here, inner and outer George’s, providing great reef diving in the right conditions.
A westerly reef that provides yet another great reef and crevice dive experience. The dive typically involves following the reef in one side and returning on the other. Also read an in depth article by Noel Gleeson about this dive site
- Biraghty Mór:
Provides a sheltered dive on the leeward side.
- Biraghty Beag:
This smaller rock depends on good conditions for diving.
