Description: Pier dive

This must be dived on slack, permission must be granted by coastguard and an SMB must be used. Lots of coins and other bits and pieces are found on the sea bed, even an axe was found!



Reader Reviews:

Dived at high tide, maximum depth of 6.1 metres, numerous small hermit crabs and some fairly big spider crabs. Found a childs toy car which I was about to pick up until I noticed that its new owner was a particularly large spider crab! There are some debris fields close to the pier presumably of material left by workmen. A few blennies had made their home under a rock and were darting in and out. Pier legs are encrusted with an array of mollusc life. Took several pictures but found that the shallow depth made staying in one spot to take pictures a little difficult as silt soon enveloped subjects. Visibility close to shore on this dive was around 1 metre, however further along the pier near the section containing the fairground rides it improved to around 4 or 5 metres at around 5 metres depth. We took some photos which you can see at http://www.lonefox.co.uk/brightonpier/
