The Welps

A magnificent granite reef running Southwest from Gull rock, on the eastern edge of Veryan Bay.

This really is scenic diving at its best, an area of granite reef going down onto surrounding sand at between 18 and 25 m. My particular favourite spot is on the extreme south-eastern edge of the reef where sheer walled gullies lead down to a sandy bottom. The walls abound with invertebrate life, including some rather nice colonies of dead men's fingers. Sea fans can also to found in deeper water. There is a large variety of fish life here, all the usual wrasse species can be found, including cuckoo wrasse. I have also seen some large pollack, dogfish, conger and a rather large mouthed angler fish.
