Seaweed diving in Gamla Hoyvík harbour

Drive out of Tórshavn towards Hvítanesvegin. Turn right towards Hoyvík and continue to the quay. There is parking close to the quay. This is a good dive to start off with. It is sheltered. There is water to rinse your equipment. Swells occur in easterly winds. There is a large seaweed forest with sand paths and large boulders. Spawning fish, crabs, snails, prawns and mussels are present in large numbers. Cuttlefish can sometimes be seen.

Depth: 1-15 metres.
Visibility: varies depending on the weather conditions, but is rarely less than 5 metres. Good for night diving.
