Other comments: There is a hand-painted sign saying no diving but this was put up without permission and should be ignored. confirmed by Scarborough Borough Council. Best to dive if it hasn't rained for a few days beforehand or there have not been any heavy winds because the swell picks up. Also if you are night diving you can reverse your car down to the top of the slipway and drop your kit off, remember to park it back in the car park.
