When in the water, swim out to the open. After maybe 30 metres there's a shoal. From there it drops steeply till about 25 metres. Stay at a maximum of about 8 metres though and keep the wall on your right side untill you see a trail of death shelves. Follow the trail up and enjoy. Great place for photographers. Meer informatie over de locatie: http://www.anemoon.org/anemoon/lokaties/moo/dreischor Park your car below the Dike. Go over some steep steps and descent on the other side.

Plompetoren

From the parking you can go straight into the water. It is a bit of a climb on the slippery rocks, but is not hard. The sandy bottom is covered with rocks, which makes the life abundant and diverse. The slope goes down rather quick to about 30 meters. Lots of different nudibraches, anemones, big lobsters, a lot of crabs. Visibility is not always good, but it is a nice dive site. Be aware of the currents, you can only dive on the change of tides!!! Plompetoren is on the Plompetorenweg along the Oosterschelde, between Schelphoek and Burghsluis. Drive along the mainroad N59 coming from Zierikzee in the direction of Middelburg. Follow directions Burghsluis and from Burghsluis drive east, the water on your right-hand side. You will see the big tower which is called Plompetoren and the parking here. From the parking, you can go straight into the water.

Goesse Sas

Netherlands, Zeeland, Oosterschelde

60 years ago the germans dropped a lot of ammunition in the water on this spot, leading to nice finds and strange compass-readings for the divers some years ago. Nowadays it's a nice spot, known for it's cuttlefish population around may-june. Ideal for a first dive, lots to see even if you don't go deeper than 15m (50ft). Small road on a dyke, just past a little harbour, can park in the grass next to the road Goesse Sas is also known as Sas van Goes.

There's a pool you need to swim through (the water isn't the best and in summertimes it's muddy; beware your gear is fixed propperly - visibility in this area is about 0!) Exit the pool and start / enjoy your dive along the wall.

The primary life here are Lobsters and Crabs. The lobsters were HUGE (2+ feet) and they were everywhere. There were many soft shell crabs 6-8 inches in diameter as well. There is a platform at 9M with a buoy. This is good for training etc and there is a railing around the platform. There is a wall of Reef-Balls to the south and east of the platform. These are like 3 foot metal whiffle balls and home to dozens of lobsters and crabs. Very interesting to explore and peek in all the holes. Entry and exit are easy, just be careful as the rocks can get a bit slick. One last note: Tanks can be filled 24/7 from an outside "vending machine" or automat located on the south end of the hotel/restaurant. The machine takes 0.50€ coins, and usually needs 5-6 to fill a 10L tank. Put the coins in one at a time, and you'll get a "squirt" of air for each one. There is a pressure gage on the machine, but it seems to read a little low. In any event, the machine won't fill past 200 bar, so the worst case is that you put in one coin too many, and get no more air. Park on the West side of the Marina in the town of Scharendijke. From there it's a short walk over the Dijke and down the rocky point. Enter the water at the end of the point. Scharendijke west is also known as Kabbelaarsrif.

Het Zoommeer, dat in open verbinding met het Volkerakmeer staat via het Schelde-Rijnkanaal, is een zoet binnenmeer met een vast waterpeil. Voorheen maakte het gebied deel uit van de Oosterschelde, maar het is daarvan gescheiden door de aanleg van de Oesterdam. De aanleg van deze dam was noodzakelijk om een getijloze scheepvaartverbinding tussen Rotterdam en Antwerpen mogelijk te maken. Het Zoommeer heeft net als het Volkerakmeer sinds enige jaren in de zomer te kampen met extensieve blauwalgenbloei, waardoor veel watervogels sterven. De vogelbevolking vertoont grote overeenkomsten met het Volkerak. Net ten noorden van de Kreekraksluizen ligt een broedkolonie van de zwartkopmeeuw. Krakeenden pleisteren met name langs dijken en dammen. De slobeend wordt voornamelijk aangetroffen in het oostelijk deel van het gebied waar dekking bestaat van de oevervegetatie. De Prinsesseplaat is een voormalig slik- en schorgebied dat van belang is voor water- en wadvogels. Hier broedt onder meer de kluut. Beheer: Staatsbosbeheer. Voor meer informatie over Vogelbescherming Nederland: www.vogelbescherming.nl Tegenwoordig een vogelreservaat. Duiken niet meer toegestaan. De Koffiehoek is also known as Zoommeer.
