We berth at the Marina in Kinlochbervie, for trips such as Kylesku we may relocate there for the days. The dive sites depth ranges will be between 5m to 40m max and most of them you can pick your own depth. The Marina has safe pontoons to load from and there are public toilets and a shop nearby. We will be returning most days between dives to allow for cylinder changing & lunch.
Kinlochbervie is known for its rich marine life, clear Atlantic water and dramatic scenery both above and below the water. We have a large number of stunning sites, ranging from big gullies to narrow, sheer walls and pinnacles to stunning rocky slopes with striking white sand. Caves, swim throughs and the Blow hole at Am Balg.
The abundance and variety of life is spellbinding. From one turn to the the next we are blessed with more stunning sites to behold. Handa Island is even more impressive below the water with gulleys, sheer walls and huge rocks, referred as the Jewel in the crown. The gulleys, walls and channels are lined with a colourful profusion of life. From multi-coloured jewel anemones , bright sponges, tunicates, hydroids, bryozoans, the list goes on. The conditions provide a fairly constant flow of water, allowing such organisms to flourish.
The sites are also abundant in fish life from sand eels to huge shoals. Dog fish in particular generally follow us through the gulleys and are particularly abundant at certain sites.
We generally spot Crayfish, including some Juveniles this year and females laiden with eggs. Octopus and Cuttlefish are particularly prominant in the spring and late summer.
We have also encountered Common Skate on 3 seperate occasions, including rarely (if ever) footage of a pair.
There are also various sites with wreckage, anchors and cannons including the Kinlochbervie wreck. We endeavour to dive the site regularly and feed back any footage.
In our opinion Kinlochbervie offers some of the best uk diving, all accessible within an 1hr from the harbour. The sea lochs of Inchard, Dughaill and Laxford offer sheltered sites if the weather proves unfavourable. We have never lost a dive to bad weather. There are numerous posts and videos on facebook and utube should you wish to get an idea of the standard of dives sites we visit. There is footage from myself, Gavin Anderson photography, Andy Jackson (SubseaTV), Immersed Dive Blog to name but a few.
