Selsey Drift (the Parks)

The Selsey Drift takes place within an area that appears on Charts as ’The Parks’, said to be the Bishop Of Chichester’s Deer Park many years ago. Tidal flow dictates the start point with an average depth of 10-12m and minimal obstructions these dives are suitable for all. Surface Marker Buoys required throughout.

Marine life seen typically includes Rays (Undulate, Thornback, Spotted, Marble and Blonde), Cat-Sharks, Smoothhounds, Plaice, Turbot and sometimes Seahorses (spiny and short-snouted).
