Diver's Notes

Bit of a swell & surge. Cloudy skies at the begining of the dive but near the end the sun broke through lifting the light level. Very little sea life, crab and the odd wrasse or two.

Murky water & quite a lot of kelp & seaweed. Lovely warm water (for Ireland) and a thoroughly enjoyable dive.
