Offering excellent reefs, wrecks and abundant marine life, diving in Guernsey should be on the list. Whether you are a beginner looking to experience the thrill for the first time, a seasoned diver with many dives logged or an advanced diver looking to push your limits Guernsey offers something for everyone.
A popular shore dive is at Havelet Bay, which provides constant shelter from the tidal streams and compared to other bays relatively deep water. This shore dive provides easy access to a variety of dive environments: reef, sand, gravel and a seaweed forest.
The Channel Islands enjoy more sunshine hours each year than the UK which makes it a popular spot for divers. Islanders and visitors make the most of the beautiful beaches and cliff paths in the summer months.
The average water temperature is 15 – 20°C during the summer months (April to October), 6-15°C during the winter months (November- March). Visibility varies depending on the season but will average around 10 meters.
Getting to Guernsey is easy by car and passenger ferries from Poole and Portsmouth. There are also routes by air from London, Edinburgh, Bristol, Southampton and more.
