Conger Crevice – a conveyor belt of life

STAR RATING :5 star
POSITION :3 miles North West of MacLeods Maidens
EXPERIENCE:Competent, site requires care with slack tide and swell
DIVE DEPTH :19-22m
CONDITIONS :Slack tides combined with westerly winds and swell can make this dive unmanagable.
SEA BED :Consists of black rock with a scattering of white shell sand and a sharply rising rock face.
TIDES :The tides run strongly along this site, and slack tide is almost essential. Experienced divers could dive shortly after slack on the flood.
TAKE CARE :Swell, tide and wind must be closely watched
COMMENTS :Described by many as awesome and said to rival the Red Sea diving easily this is an excellent photographic dive site with visibility in excess of 15 metres. A vertical black rock face plummets to the sea bed in an amazing technicolour of encrusting soft colour and anemones of all shapes and size. A crevice at the base of the cliff, described as a 'conveyor belt of marine life' is crammed full.
