The Isles of Scilly
28 miles off Lands Ends, Cornwall the most south westerly point of
England and because of the geographical location of the islands and the
nearby gulf-stream the surrounding sea water is extremely rich in
marine nutrients. The islands are known for there crystal clear
underwater visibility which provides an outstanding memorable
experience for divers looking for a new diving location.
The outer reef walls emerge from incredible depths
creating the most fascinating underwater landscapes that include
stunning gigantic underwater rock formations and reef walls of thriving
marine life, covered in colourful fauna, rare Sponges, Cup corals and
reefs with Football sea squirts and protected Sea fans. Marine
biologists and enthusiastic underwater photographers visit these
isolated tranquil islands several times a year to look for and record
more rare species.
These beautiful Islands have got to be one of the
best places for diving around the British Isles. If you're considering
a diving holiday UK style then I thoroughly recommend putting Scillies
on your must do dive list for the best scuba diving experience you can

treasure shipwrecks, protected historic ship wrecks, steamships and
