The Sea

Lundy's position in the Bristol Channel means that many rare species grow in the water around it. This and the wrecks around its coast attract sport divers and researchers in increasing numbers.

As well as the creatures below the sea, there are numerous seals, often in the Landing Bay.


The waters around the island are England's only statutory Marine Conservation Zone and two of the wrecks are "Protected" and require a licence to visit. Please find out more if you wish to dive around Lundy. Contact the island warden who will be happy to help.

Ilfracombe Sub Aqua Club have prepared information about diving around Lundy, including tidal information and a map of dive sites.
