    Smalls Feature "Big Trip to The Smalls " - John Liddiard
    Published in Diver magazine July 2011

    Click here to see our Smalls in Diver Magazine !

    For some excellent visibility and an incredible variety of species, twenty miles out to sea, west of Skomer Island lie The Smalls.

    The Smalls are famous for the marine life, including a large colony of seals. Visibility can be up to 25 metres.

    There are a number of shipwrecks here but these are fairly well broken up and eclipsed by the fantastastic topography and underwater life that can be observed.

    The Smalls are also a great spot for seeing pods of dolphins and catching tasty mackerel !

    Weather conditions and tides have to be correct - we can only dive this site on certain dates please discuss with us prior to booking

    HMS WHIRLWIND - Wreck Tour 139 Diver magazine - John Liddiard

    The jewel in the crown - Best shipwreck in Wales let alone Pembrokeshire !

    Site at 36 mts, on the Aberporth missile target range. She lies on her port side, fairly intact and identifiable about 100 mts long - covered in Dead Mans Fingers, lots of life, a fantastic wreck dive. There are places to penetrate; the forward section and battle bridge... Awesome !

    Emotionally Charged
    - Martin Bruce

     

    We took Martin out to the Smalls with both Wandrin' Star and JanHazel. The site of the Camrose was the target, but the reef life and topography eclipsed the wreckage.

    Meanwhile topside we caught mackerel, observed thousands of diving gannets, seals and quite a number of dolphin.
