The first trip out was round to Chapman’s Pool, where in 3m deep of water we saw spider crabs and wrasse. After lunch, a second trip was made over to Warborough Bay where many more Spider crabs were spotted amongst the kelp and gorgeous pink seaweed.

This trip was a great success, introducing some of our younger members to open water snorkelling from a RIB for the first time.
