How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
Easy divesite at the end of the Oosterschelde. There is little tide movement and the current is very weak. This means that you can enter the water all the time. There is a platform for instruction. This is overgrown with marine life and in summertime fish is swimming around and under the platform. To the east there is a lot of sand. To the west is a small band of rocks between 3-8 meters stretching for about 50 meters. After that, ...sand. Its not the most beautiful divesite in the Oosterschelde but in springtime Sepia's are coming here and if you into macro there is a lot of interesting small stuff to find.
