Snorkelling at Bembridge

One of my favourite parts of our visit to the Isle of Wight was snorkelling at Bembridge.

Filming underwater opens up a whole new world of creatures, including crabs, juvenile Ballan wrasse, sea anemones and multitudes of other tiny fish.

The juvenile Ballan wrasse perfectly blend in with the seagrass and were easy to miss as they swam amongst the swaying grass.

As the tide comes in velvet and shore crabs scuttle along the sea bottom feeding on dead animal and plant matter brought in by the influx of water.

Thank you to  my mum for being my dive buddy.

  2. Looks like a good time. Snorkeling is excellent and accessible to so many people. I keep meaning to get out in one of our freshwater lakes to look around. Seems I have a prejudice that it’s a saltwater activity !

  3. The best way to see marine life. What is it you’re using to get the underwater pics?
