Discover a world beneath the waves
Diving in Pembrokeshire
Diving in Pembrokeshire opens up a treasure chest of marine habitats and allows you to explore another world swaying beneath the waves.
One of the crowning jewels of underwater Pembrokeshire has to be the waters around Skomer, Skokholm and Middleholm islands, which form part of the Skomer Marine Nature Reserve, one of only three such reserves in the UK. Visit the intact and well-documented wreck of the ‘Lucy’, explore the reefs and experience first hand the biodiversity associated with marine reserves. Expect to be checked out by the inquisitive and playful seals.
There are dives that cater to all depths and levels of ability, and with regular sightings of porpoise, dolphins and seals, not to mention over 350 known wrecks that litter the surrounding waters.
Pembrokeshire’s clear waters offer excellent visibility, abundant marine life and wrecks to explore.

Diving out of Fishguard you’ll be able to explore ‘Strumble Head‘ and ‘Needle Rocks,’ two well-known sites with varying topography and teeming with life.
Stack Rocks and Hens and Chicks just off Little Haven have some of the best visibility around. It’s protected from the currents and has a depth of 24m making for easy diving.
And don’t forget there’s Milford Haven, with its many wrecks, many of which lie in the Haven and therefore protected from prevailing winds. New discoveries are being made all the time, in 2012 an unexploded World War II parachute mine was found by divers off Dale.
