Day One of Diving

By July 2, 2011July 8th, 2022No Comments1 min read

Our day started at 7.00am with a breakfast before hauling anchor and heading for Sheep’s Head to dive the Bullig. There was a bit of a swell at the dive site so we headed in the bay and anchored at Dooneen Pier and headed to the Bullig by Rib. None of the divers had dived the Bullig before and were all well impressed. The Bullig is a Pinnacle rising from the seabed of 60M to 12M. It could be referred to as a high energy site with the rock covered with life, shoals of fish patrol it and cray fish are often seen. Our divers were so impressed that they wanted to dive it again after lunch.

Tonight we are back in the safe anchorage of Lawrence Cove where we had a Bar-B-Q on board and some of the divers have now gone for a night dive on the Bardeen Reefer, a small wreck in the channel between Bere Island and the mainland. The conditions are super for it with clear skys and flat seas. We had a beautiful sunset so lets hope it’s a promise of nice weather for tomorrow.
