This site is perfect for all beginners and even fun for those that just like to see lots of wildlife… I have dove here many times with a class, and for my own recreation fun. I recommend doing Wetheral as a night dive, because this is when the bottom of this cove really comes alive, although I have dove here during the day and saw plenty of flounder (catching one once with my hand). Beware, only about 100m offshore it starts to get deep, and cold. Vis really depends on recent local weather more than anything else. It is also easy to kick up mud and blind yourself, this is because days after a storm vis can still be only 3-4 feet which keeps you close to the bottom. On the contrary I have dove here with 10-15ft some days. Have fun
