Salcombe Wrecks and Reefs

Dates: 21st - 23rd May 2021

Price: £180 (excluding accomodation)

Come and join Go Dive for three days of diving on wrecks and reefs on Falcon II.

Come and join us for three days of diving on wrecks and reefs on Falcon II out of Salcombe.

Falcon II is based in the picturesque estuary of the River Dart in Devon, operating dive charters from Dartmouth and Salcombe, an ideal base from which to explore the numerous scenic reefs, rock pinnacles and wrecks of southern Lyme Bay, Start Bay and west to Bolt Trail.  The South coast of Devon has an excellent range of reefs and pinnacles to suit all diver grades, with an abundance of marine life, encouraged by the tidal streams.  The skipper has a detailed knowledge of these tidal flows and slack waters, which he uses to enable the best diving possible from each site.

Due to the strong tidal currents in the areas, wrecks are covered with sea life, anemones and deadmens fingers, and visibility can sometimes be as good as 20-30 metres.

Limited accommodation available at Alton Farm Campsite (speak to the shop team for more information). Alternative accommodation can be found locally.
