Poor Vis, Busy with students, Car park and path ways filled with pebbles so take something to stand on,

I recently went up to Blue Lagoon (Darrington) to practice some Rescue Diver Skills. The place is really easy to find and you can see from entering that it is a popular place to visit.
It costs £10 per day and an additional £5 membership – you get your picture taken and a fancy card (you have been warned).
There are a couple of training platforms along with 2 boat wrecks, a howitzer field gun, sabre light tank and a hawker hunter jet plane in addition to the possible sighting of some aquatic friends such as sterlets, roach, tench, carp, newts, frogs, toads and the new addition of sturgeon.
The water was warm enough when there (13degrees) but due to it being an old limestone quarry, it get’s pretty murky, pretty quickly!
There were quite a number of people training when I was there, which when doing surface rescue skills almost got us into trouble a few times as people were finning underneath us!
It’s a nice dive site, which is going through loads of improvements to the roadways and with creating a new ‘beach’ – It’s super near to home, so I’ll be visiting again for sure!
