Marine life seen on the dive


On Wednesday evening 8 divers from Lisburn dived the Inner Lees after a slightly foggy trip out from Strangford and a last minute change of dive site.


The average dive time was 45 minutes and most divers enjoyed a leisurely bimble with good visibility.

A couple of diver pairs carried out drills and practiced skills including DSMB deployment and weight checks at the end of their dive.

There was a wealth of life on the wreck including Violet nudibranch, fried egg sea slugs, orange clubbed sea slug, there was also loads of suns stars, common starfish, bloody henrys and spiny starfish. There were lots of squat lobsters, edible crabs, violet swimming crabs and common prawn under the wreck alongside a Conger Eel. Fish life included Cuckoo Wrasse, Two Spot Gobies, Butterfish, Pipefish and a large Dab clinging to the bottom of the wreck. Unfortunately the chip shop wasn’t open for a post dive natter but a very enjoyable night was had by all.
