Mewstone East

Just a short 10-minute boat ride from Plymouth Breakwater in the United Kingdom, you will find the Mewstone dive site. This unique dive spot boasts a distinctive mountain-shaped rock formation that gently slopes down to the seabed. Unlike other areas in the vicinity, the Mewstone has minimal silt, resulting in exceptional visibility of around 7 meters.

Divers of all levels, from beginners to advanced, can enjoy exploring the Mewstone. The underwater canyons formed by the rock structure provide a thriving habitat for a variety of marine life, making it a haven for underwater photography enthusiasts. The site is particularly renowned for being a hotspot for dogfish sightings.

In addition to the captivating marine life, the Mewstone offers the opportunity to experience strong drift currents during spring tides. This adds an extra thrill to your dive adventure, as you navigate through the currents while admiring the captivating surroundings.

Located near prominent landmarks such as HMS Cambridge, Wembury, and Heybrook Bay in the South Hams region of Devon, the Mewstone is easily accessible for divers looking for an unforgettable underwater experience. So whether you are a beginner looking to enhance your skills or an experienced diver seeking new dive sites, the Mewstone won't disappoint.
