Moonshadow – Falmouth – Scenic Diving

Due to the popularity of this advertised trip in 2021, we’re back to Atlantic Scuba for some recreational diving from Falmouth.

This is a recreational dive trip. Diving is with Atlantic Scuba on hardboat Moonshadow. The outline plan is a weekend of scenic and photographic diving on many of the walls, pinnacles and gullies of ‘The Bizzies’ and maybe the wreck of the SS Hera. All dives are within recreation limits, maximum depths are around 23 metres.

"The Bizzies are a large reef system with lots of pinnacles. They are covered in soft and hard corals and extremely scenic, they are situated just to the east of Falmouth, somewhere we visit regularly. We have lots of different entry points for the Bizzies, whether on or around pinnacles or in gullies. We also have some nice pinnacles and reefs a little further east, but there are very few wrecks except for the Hera.

A balance compared to diving from our popular Porthkerris trips, we will look to dive to the east of Falmouth and although not many wrecks within recreational limits, there is an abundance of wildlife which makes every dive special.

Logistics in respect to quantity of cylinders, gas refills, meet times and ropes off times will be made closer to the date.
