South Channel Fort

South Channel Fort
Open Water
0m – 12m
This man-made island was built in the 1880’s and houses gun placements, underground tunnels and turrets. It is also the nesting ground for many species of seabird. Both the above-water and underwater environments are worth a visit and this is a particularly good site for new Open Water divers or divers whi have been out of the water for a while and need to refresh their skills.  Underwater the pylons of the jetty provide a nursery ground for Old Wives and a variety of fish life.
