UK Diving » A weekend in Abercastle

The diving season suddenly started to feel like it was drawing to a close and we were very glad of the chance to return to Pembroke. The Urchin survey seemed ages ago, (probably because we returned to a flooded house) and it was great to see a lot of familiar faces from that adventure. Kate had (as usual) got the world organised on her side and we had 3 boats between us and were assigned to Captain Dave. the conditions weren't quite playing ball and the vis dropped off over the weekend but we had a great time and will be back - if they'll have us!

Guided by Bruce of West Wales Diving School in Mathry (not to be confused with West Wales Divers in Hasguard Cross) we dived the bays North of Abercastle. Unfortunately the vis started average and thickened up so this is another mainly macro selection.
Abercastle has its own tame/greedy Grey seal. It's not hard to see why it comes in to see the boats when the fishermen throw it plenty of fish but it did make for an amazingly close up encounter
