Probably the most popular dive site in The Dog islands, the Chimney is a relatively shallow dive, with lots of canyons and ledges to expore (which combined with its sheltered location, means zero current).
The site is named after a shaft like crevasse in the rocks which divers can swim up (provided that they are not too overweight). Larger and more timorous divers can swim over the top of the crevasse.
Excellent marine life, but the mooring balls can get crowded with snorkellers because the site is so relatively shallow.
