Dive Report: John Nicolson 5/5/07 Dived here with EKSAC and had a great dive the viz was 6-8m which is good for here. I got lovely pictures of firework anemone's. 

Dive Report: John Nicolson 12/5/08 Did some deep training for scapa tonight with Meeko at GDRE and the viz was great 15m+ best I've had here and now realize there are lots of small cliffs and if you go left (facing the water) there are a few good cliffs at 24 - 30m..... The anemone's are ab-fab here tons of them.
