Diving the Drawna Rocks, The Lizard, Cornwall

Drawna Rocks are one of the best shore dives you can do in the UK. It is not deep, the area is sheltered and except from East Winds (but the prevailing winds are south-west making Porth Kerris very sheltered. 


Access is via the road and there is sufficient space to drop your kit off and park not far away. The local diveshop offers gas, last minute purchases and a nice cafe. 


Diving couldn't be easier. Surface swim a few metres (about 50m at high tide to the last emerging pinnacle in the cove), drop down right next to it and you will see a small gully to swim through. The upper rocks tend to be  covered with kelp, but just below it you will find lobster, crabs, jewel anemones, sea cucumbers, sponges. There is a wide variety of fish to be spotted - corkingwing wrasse, red gurnard, cuckoo wrasse, as well as, pollack and bass.


Just spend time exploring the various nooks and crannies in the rocks. The rock inlets have wonderful names such as Cauldron, Small Cauldron, Chimney Cove, Steep Corner and The Canyon.


To note for the log book page, the numbers are given at low tide, high tide numbers can make the area deeper (but no more than 15m to 18m).
