August 2006 Great dive both from small bay to left of gully entrance, and the main gully! Viz was good, plenty to see, even though there was quite a bit of kelp in areas! Recommend at high tide leave from main gully and follow coast round into small bay (taking in a few deadended gully). Plenty of small fish, lobsters, crabs, sea anenomes, and dead mens fingers. Well recommended at this time of year, though check tides before diving here, and wind directions, as can be prone to strong currents!

August 2006 ** Greenend Gully ** Lovely dive on Sunday down in Eyemouth. Weather was pleasant, slight breeze blowing, sea calm; ideal for diving. Viz was fantastic and was simply the best experienced on the east coast to date. The viz was over 10m!!! Plenty of small juvenile nudibranches around and other small sea life as well. A few lobsters watching from the safety of their holes, but liek teh nudibranches they were all small. Sea temperature varied between 13-15 degrees C. Harbour seal seen towards harbour which does frequent the dive site - you just need to be lucky!

February 2006 ** Black Carr ** A boat dive out of St. Abbs. Calm day and the viz was good for the North Sea. Water temp in Feb was 7 degrees C, a little on the cold side. Sea anenomes were in abundance as were sponges, crabs, hermit crabs, urchins and the old lobster here and there. A harbour seal was out keeping us company :-)

Wreck Dives:

Here are the wreck dives we know of for St Abbs, Eyemouth.

Glanmire
This is by far the most accessible, worthwhile wreck in the St. Abbs area. Only a few minutes from the harbour in approximately 30m of water, a lot of wreckage remains. Much of the Glanmire is now flattened. The propeller (a steel one!) stands upright as do the boilers. This is not a dive for the inexperienced. Although not especially deep, it can be very gloomy and also bitingly cold especially in the Spring. It is also a slack water dive with perhaps only half an hour of slack. Staying on the wreck past the end of the slack period can mean a difficult ascent up the shotline (assuming you can find it), or being swept along and surfacing hundreds of metres from your boat with the possibility you will not be spotted.
31m / 102ft
35m / 115ft
Accidental sinking: 25-Jul-1912 Wreck penetration not possible Technical or decompression diving. More info...
