Black head

We boarded the hard boat at Porthoustock and headed south. The intention was to dive the Lizard but conditions weren't quite right so we stopped off at black head for a fast drift instead.
The dive started off in about 20m and gradually got deeper as the current took us south, rather quickly, over a spectacular broken reef.

The drift took us past sea fans, dead men's fingers and a myriad of other invertebrate life. There was a variety fish life the most notable being some beautifully coloured ballen wrasse.

A fine spot, but not for the inexperienced as the current can be quite fast and it drops off quickly at the end. We came up when we got to 36m and it was still going down!

Depth 0-36m +
