Old Walls Reef

I have to say that I don't think I've dived the "Old walls" properly, hence the heading "Old Walls Reef". However we have dived "in the vicinity of the Old Walls" several times. Each dive has been unspectacular but enjoyable.

The area we've dived, about a mile south of St. Anthony lighthouse, has flat rock and course sand with a good deal of marine life, including all the usual wrasse species; ballen, cuckoo, goldsinny and rock cook, with pollack, and dogfish. On one dive I saw six male cuckoo wrasse, which really surprised me as I thought they were highly territorial and had one male to a harem of females (any info please?).

Some very pleasant scenic diving is to be had out here, but watch the boat traffic!
