[VIDEO] Scuba diving in the Firth of Forth, Scotland

With the wonderful Easter weekend we had in Scotland, I felt so lucky I booked 2 dives in Fife near Edinburgh. Even if the visibility is quite reduced and the water only 6°C,  colourful treasures lie on the sea bed of Blae Rock: Spider crabs, Sagartia anemones, Plumose anemones, Hermit crabs and so many star fish and sea urchin. It is my first video with my new video light system. I should say for a first trial I’m pretty happy. Nonetheless, next time, I will need to lower the intensity of the light for the close-up.

I am sure the grey seal I saw a couple of times at the surface was following us during the entire dive. I am really disappointed I couldn’t see it underwater. I hope next time hopefully! Bonus at the end of the video : a beautiful Scottish sunset on the Forth bridges.

  1. […] 5 – Firth of Forth, near Edinburgh: The closest dive site from my home. I discovered it quite recently, and took the opportunity to test there my dry suit. I need to go back as it was quite promising and the opportunity to meet Atlantic grey seals close to the Isle of May reserve sounds exciting. You can also watch my first video of scuba diving in the Firth of Forth. […]

    1. Thank you! Well 6°C is not very warm but with a dry suit it is definitely ok! I’m going to Iceland this week… this is going to be a freezing dive! 🙂
