Dive Report: John Nicolson this is a dive that is only good for deep training, The wall is vertical to 90m then it's a boulder slope. If you want to check out the equipment and not carry it too far, the wall is ideal. The viz was only 1-2m and it was like diving in tea but my kit has never been so clean.
