Tisvildeleje Strand

#1 - Tisvildeleje Strand

Denmark, Hovedstaden

Approx. 150 m from the shoreline there's a stone reef of big (1-3m) boulders running in parallel to the shoreline. Swim along the reef and look between the stones. You will experience tons of crabs, different kinds of soles and the occasional cod. The site is excellent for night dives and at night time the site has quite a few eels. Park your car at the far end of the large parking lot and get into your gear. Walk across the beach and enter the water just below your car. Wade and swim approx. 100 m course 270 (45 degree (left) angle to the shoreline) until you are past the two sand banks. Once beyond the sand banks descend and swim course 270 until you hit the stone reef.

Når i kommer ind gennem bommen, så kør til højre & dernæst til venstre, der er stejlt... kør ned i bunden, ca. 30 meter efter træudhænget, det er et godt sted at gå i, hvis i svømmer lige frem lander du i en gang som du kan følge rundt og lande nede på bunden, ved resterne af træbjælkerne da de gravede Kalk. Når I er færdige, skal nøglen afleveres i postkassen på Firemilegården, Tåstrupvej 17. Søen er op til 14 meter dyb, og temperaturen er lav under overfladen. Husk ikke at ramme bunden da du nemt hvirvler kalken op. Dykker ture skal anmeldes senest én hverdag før turen. Det er ikke tilladt at dykke uden at have anmeldt det. I kan ringe til skovløber Finn på hverdage mellem kl. 8-15 på tlf. 21 21 97 43 og aftale nærmere om udlevering af en nøgle til bommen, så I kan køre ind og læsse jeres grej af, husk at køre bilen op igen. Der står fiskere (med fisketegn) så tag hensyn til hinanden.

Mean Well diving location. The bottom consists of sand, which quickly moves into mud. There are small, little eels and flatfish. There is growing rødtang long seaweed and grass on the bottom. Find: Run out of Refshalevej over B and W's main building and past the sailing club Lynetten port, and continue to the road swings 90 degrees to the left where there is a small pier. It is just before the B and W building dock. There dykkes from the jetty and north to the dock. You can also go down south (to the sailing club) there is a slight slope and a little sand to stand on.

Søbadet

#6 - Søbadet

Denmark, Syddanmark

The name "Søbadet" makes sense, because there is a nice wooden building in front that seems to breathe some history. Some people from further away may just refer to the site as "Middlefart", because it is the biggest village closeby. The old sea bath has a beach that is framed by two chains of buoys at either side. Sometimes the current is so strong, that the buoys will literally be dragged under water (!). At the same time, you may experience currents into the opposite direction at higher depths, which comes in handy for "taxi-diving". But be aware that the current may not be helpful at times and also may get you short on air very quickly if you try to go against it, especially at greater depths. There are actually two "steps" (drops of 2-4 meters each) which are quite fun to follow, as current(s) permit. There is plenty of marine life at these steps. Dont bother to go much deeper, because there is not much to see and you might miss the buoy-chains that you will tell you when to stop and go the other way. The greater area is certainly worth to consider a real drift dive over several kilometers escorted by a boat. We have seen people being picked up right in front of this site, so there must be some offerings to that extend. The diving is very enjoyable here, but certainly not for the faint of heart ! Snoghøj, Fredericia. Søbadet is also known as "Seabath".

Diving is not allowed, as the wreck is inside harbour area. The harbour area starts at the castle and end at the new bridge. You are charged 800 dkr. pr. diver by the police if catched. Don't forget the fact that it is absolute dangerous to go to the surface during summertime, when the traffic over the wreck is high. (you won't hear a sailboat). One of the reasons for not finding a lot is, that many beginners expect the wreck as a beginner wreck at only 10 to 17 meters. Flydedok is also known as Sønderborg.

Denmark, Sjaelland

The bottom slowly deepens to about 5-6 meters - then follows a steeper slope down to 10 meters. Twin is found by following the bottom in direction 90 deg until a depth of around 10 meters is reached. Then turn directly north and follow a depth of 10-11 meters. The small wreck of Twin is one of the most popular diving targets of Denmark. The wreck is 9.6 meters long and 3.5 meters wide with the bow at 10 deg. NNE. The deck is slanted towards the beach. Unfortunately the wreck is now in severe decay and is found in an ever more collapsed state. Just recently two more small wrecks have appeared - one very close to Twin - the other somewhat south of Twin! Due to the low salinity of the sea water - the wreck is mostly covered with mussels and starfish and sporting a large school of goldsinnies. It is not uncommon to see various kinds of flounders as well as cod and the occasional lumpsucker. The challenge of Twin itself is to find it! Navigational skill is required - especially on night dives - for which Twin also provides a fine scene. If you desire a glimpse of the deeper and more salinity craving life of Øresund (the sound that separates Denmark from Sweden) - you can continue directly east from Twin and reach deeper than 20 meters. Here you can find large whelks, nudibranchs and various kinds of sea anemones. You enter water at the Trykkerdammen locality, use the stairs down from the parking space at Faergevej, just south of Elsinore Ferry Harbour. Twin is also known as PADI wreck.

In summer children and adults jump in the water from the steep cliff, so here it is a good idea to use a surface buoy At the end of the car park and 100 meters around the point is a small beach, which for the ordinary tourist is a bit of a surprise. Here you will find a small natural bay with a steep cliff to the left, flat rocky landscape to the right and a beach with coarse sand. Relatively easy access and depths.

Line ship sank Zealand 2.4.1801. There are now tied and some frames back in the very scrub oak. Ballast at the bottom as you can look into. Approximately 800 m north of Humlebæk yacht harbour and 600 m from the beach. It is possible to swim to the wreck from the beach - but not advisable. The presence of just a little current can make the finding of the wreck difficult – not to mention the swim back. Boat support is the preferred mode for diving "Sjælland"
