St Just Pool

St Just Pool refers to an area within the Carrick Roads, it’s where the deep river channel turns from south to west causing a deep pool. Although we wouldn’t class it as one of our better dive sites, it is in an extremely sheltered area. With depths ranging from 4m to 30m, it is a ‘fall back’ dive site for when the sea is too rough to venture out. It usually has some interesting life including Thornback Rays, Hermit Crabs and Variegated Scallops. Rumour has it that there is some remains of a Sunderland Flying Boat in there somewhere, although we’ve never seen it, yet.

With the area there is a small wall, from 15m to 18m. Stuck at one end is the remains of an old scallop dredge, the rest of the wall has an interesting range of life, making it the most interesting part of the dive.
