Drifting through the Gavellachs 

After two weeks of settled Weather, we decided to head out from Oban on Deep Dancer down to the Gavellachs (Islands of the Sea) and try one of the Channels between the Islands.

Usually strong currents provide divers with lots of life to see and we were not let down this time,  however as with all these dives care must be taken to dive them on neaps and close to slack water.

Dropping at the Blue Pin we dropped down to 16 metres and the Viz was about 5-6 metres with lots of Kelp and then Patches of Reef covered in Dead mans Fingers and Elephants Ears Chris and I worked our way round towards the channel where the current picked up condisderably.  We followed the Kelp using it to help keep out of the main current and slow our drift.

We had heard that the Crawfish were out but didn’t manage to spot any this time.
