Waldrons Drift

Located southeast of Bognor Regis in the United Kingdom, the Waldrons is a stunning Sandstone Reef dive site. Offering a captivating drift diving experience, the depths range from 12 to 18 meters as you navigate along the reef. With excellent visibility of up to 10 meters, this dive site is a paradise for both beginner and advanced divers.

Prepare to be amazed by the abundance of marine life that calls the Waldrons home. From vibrant Corkwing Wrasse and Ballan Wrasse to elegant Goldsinney and Pollack, you'll encounter a diverse range of fish species. Keep an eye out for fascinating creatures such as Tompot Blenny, Rays, and Cat Sharks. The reef itself is a mesmerizing display of nature's beauty, boasting an impressive array of 24 recorded species of sponge, bryozoans, hydroids, and tube worms.

Immerse yourself in the expansive sandstone bedrock outcrops that dominate the Waldrons. Nestled in the depths of 12 to 18 meters off Bognor, these outcrops are adorned with large sandstone boulders, some rounded and others angular. Between these boulders, you'll find patches of cobbles, pebbles, gravel, and sand. Over time, the natural erosion of the rock has created a fascinating network of fissures, crevices, overhangs, and uniquely shaped holes. This dive site is a true representation of the enchanting characteristics of sandstone reefs.

Dive the Waldrons during both the ebb and flood tides around high water. The speed of the tides may vary depending on whether it's a neap or spring tide, reaching speeds of approximately 1 knot. Explore the rich marine life either among the boulders and rock stacks, some reaching impressive sizes, or over the flatter ground that attracts fascinating creatures like Rays, Plaice, Cat-Sharks, and even occasional Scallop sightings.

Discover the wonders of the Waldrons dive site, conveniently located near Felpham, Arun, West Sussex, in the picturesque region of South East England. Embark on an unforgettable underwater adventure in this captivating dive destination that offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and diverse marine life.
