UK diving has many highlights, here are just a few:
Diving along the UK coast you will encounter lots of crustaceans!
Diving in Cornwall UK: To see basking sharks in Cornwall May and June are the best time. The region has a history full of legends and illicit shipwrecking. It is, one of the UKs most popular tourist areas, offering a slower pace of life with a mild climate and miles of unspoilt coastline and secluded beaches. The Cornish peninsula juts out into the Atlantic and provides a marked contrast between the calm inlets and the open ocean on the north coast.
Lands End is well known for its ship wrecks found along the entire length of the coast, from early sailing ships to modern day trawlers. Many ship wrecks are untouched and undiscovered.

It is also possible to dive and absorb diving courses in the fresh water inland.

In the North you can encounter seals and play with some of them underwater. There are plenty of small starfish and some large wrasses and codlings, shrimps, young lobsters and octopus.
I just wrote a few highlights but you can find more in the regional pages or in the dive center and liveaboard websites.
