Drift and Reef Dives Trips:

We are lucky in Swanage to have some really nice Reef Dives, on spring tides you can get water in the 12-16 m range, ideal for a second dive, moving at up to 3.5 knots. Its the nearest to flying underwater you can get, the closer you get you're nose to the bottom the faster is seems you're moving. It's very important that you use a red SMB and that it is used from the start of a drift dive. It puts years on my life waiting to see if the diver will come up near where I think he should be. Yellow SMBs are poor in the suns reflection! Round red and white ones should be sent back to Italy with a hole in them!

There is a nice site by Anvil point Light house on the old mussel beds, an area of no mussels! They used to extend out 300-400m from the cliffs but some years ago now they decided to legged it, well, they would have if mussels had legs!.

You can drift on the ebb or flood as there is no obstructions going east to west. The water will gradually get deeper at the end of any drift in this area. Average depth is approx 15-17 m.

2 hours after high water Kyarra you can dive the Peveril Ledge just to the east of Swanage, a nice area with gullies 2-15 m deep. You should try and keep inside the buoy as it can shelve away to 27 m close to the east. There is a deep pit 300 m to the SE of the buoy (The well) and its 38  m deep not a place to visit on a second dive. However some experienced divers have done the dive, which they claimed was very enjoyable. This site is not divable when spring ebbs away.
