Fairygirl. No, apart from the infamous Stoney Cove when my niece was training, I did all my diving in UK waters in Cornwall, either out of St Ives, Hayle, Penzance, Lamorna Cove, or off the Lizard for the Manacles. I towed someone in full kit for 200 yards in a hailstorm in Porthoustock Harbour for my Rescue course. Memorable moments are wild dolphins off St Ives, Basking sharks off Porthcurno, and an Orca off Gurnards head. The Runnel Stone in 30m visibility one June day was pretty spectacular too.
I like warm water too much these days. Far less gear to hump about.
