Tuesday Night Dive, Browns Bay, Cullercoats

11th Aug 2009

Instead of the usual Tuesday night boats dive, a group of Tyneside members assembled on the road above Browns Bay before making the long descent down the steep path to the rocks beside the old swimming pool. From here it is a relatively simple entrance point into the water.

When no swell is present this site provides a pleasant shore dive as it is well sheltered from the tide. The myriad of reefs that run across the Bay nevertheless provide ample habitats for Marine life and during the course of this dive we came across pollack, wrasse and several bold lobsters which were venturing across the rocky seabed in amongst the kelp.

All in all a nice dive to wash away the aftermath of work before heading home for tea.
