Underwater conditions

There is a short waist level area then it drops straight down to about 34m. This site is not suitable for Open Water Divers unless they are near the end of their Open Water Diver Course - ONLY if visability conditions are suitable. St Andrews is a chalk based lake and does get kicked up very easily. We highly recommend only divers with Advanced Open Water and Deep training (or equivalent) or above dive at this site.
