Milford Haven is known globally for its deep inshore channel, and as the fourth largest freight port in the UK. Moreover it is set in the heart of the only Coastal National Park in United Kingdom. At Milford Haven there is a huge contrast between the wonderful and beautiful coastal scenic views and the big amount of boat traffic and refineries that you’ll find there.
The Milford Haven Waterway is the largest estuary in Wales. Its sheltered, tidal waters are surrounded by a diverse 200-mile coastline providing habitats for an abundance of wildlife, both terrestrial and marine. When the weather is unstable, and conditions are really bad, divers tend to dive the Haven as a last resort. But if you dive the Haven when the visibility is pretty good, you’re sure to be in for a treat.
There are many wrecks in the Haven, some of which are never dived. There are over twelve wrecks. Although the depths are not great they do provide some of the best wreck diving in the UK. Everyone who comes to Milford Haven wants to dive the Lucy, but with a bottom time of some 10 mins for the non-enriched air users, it’s really a long way to come for such a short dive.
