Know Before You Go
If you go by car at the weekend and want to get into the parking lot next to the water you will need to arrive at the site very early. Arrivals at 5 am are very common, such is the popularity of this site.
Other parking lots are available but it is a long walk with dive gear.
If you have your diving qualifications with you it is possible to rent a full set of gear.
Although there is a fill station on site the wait for a fill can be quite long so if possible turn up with a full tank.
If you dive the Stanegarth decend down the line clearly marked by a buoy and when you have seen what you want follow the anchor chain which will lead you across the 20m shelf back to a safe ascent to the 5m shelf for your safety stop.
The visibility is variable. When it is good it is great but at certain times of year it can be less than a metre. In Nemo's bar there is a section of floor that is glass and you can see divers diving in the flooded basement below.
