Diving the Corryvreckan Whirlpool

Jura Excursions written in stencil

Right, time for another excursion to the far north of Islay's neighbour Jura. A few days ago I spotted this video on someone's feed somewhere, unfortunately I forgot to note down where, so can't give credit. Anyway, the video takes us to the famous Corryvreckan, but not for a view from above. As you've probably guessed we're going to get a view from below:

Diving there is obviously only for highly trained and experienced divers, I also assume (if I understood the commentary right) that it is only possible to dive it in a carefully selected short time window.

But it's certainly worth it, the wildlife down there looks amazing. Bit strange to think that they thrive under the harsh conditions there.

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
