Best Dived at:- Neap Tide
The Mixon Hole lies at the Eastern end of the Looe Channel that connects the Solent to the Eastern Channel.
The currents through here can be significant so it is recommended that this site is only dived on Neap tides. The Cardinal Marker is in 5-6m of water. A short swim South East brings you to the cliff edge - this shallow area on top has luxuriant marine growth and life. The blue clay cliff drops vertically to a gravel bottom - there are occasional crabs and lobsters where boulders are dotted into the clay. Spherical balls (rumoured to be from Roman catapults) dot one area of the bottom which is usually a good place to see Cat-Sharks, Smoothhounds and Rays.
