Rob Spray and Dawn Watson – regional coordinators of Seasearch (a volunteer project dedicated to protecting our marine environment) – are frequent visitors to one of the longest chalk reefs in the world, just off the North Norfolk shore.
In this exciting illustrated talk, Rob and Dawn will illuminate the secret world through film, images and discussion.
You too can enjoy the hidden treasures of Norfolk’s secret sea…
If you’re excited by rock pools and want to see more of the creatures that live around our coast, snorkelling may be for you! A new chalk reef Snorkel Trail will be buoyed in July on Sheringham’s east beach. See seasearch.org.uk for details.
“I’m told we must be masochists as we enjoy diving around the UK and in many ways prefer it to some of the blue water diving that we’ve done. For many ‘tropical’ diving is the Red Sea; diving there is rather like trying to have a conversation in a night club and I’d much rather enjoy a dive than fight through crowds…
The UK offers varied and often beautiful diving with diverse wildlife and habitats. We’re not really wreck enthusiasts but appreciate their role as natural reefs which are magnets for everything from cod to cuttlefish. British wildlife is often less extrovert than its tropical counterparts but rewards the effort made to see it.”
