Denmark Diving - Lyngsbo

Post by Tom Nic » Thu Jul 05, 2018 11:37 am

Since my reports are already ridiculously long I wanted to toss a separate report in for this site. Long report ahead - you have been warned!

The name is Lyngsbo, and it is across the channel and upstream a bit past the bridge from Sobadet.

With the winding channel that is Lillebaelt there are areas that are in the “lee” of the current that can be dove when other sites are fully exposed.

Image

My dive buddy was not an “expert” on the channel, and I imagine that with some research or knowing the right people there are a TON of dive opportunities here. The life is WAY more than the first shore site I dove, and there are stone walls that stair-step down into the deep channel. With the shallow sandy area, the walls, and the deep slope there are really a variety of habitats to explore – I’d love to have a week to do so!

I saw more fish species on this dive, and several sculpin. It was both cool and odd finding the sculpin because there were not as many as I would have expected. There are also some huge cod in this channel, which attracts fishermen, both above and below water.

Lots of jellyfish being blown through the channel, and here there was lots of life in the shallows.

Image

There is a cool little sculpin I have yet to identify, and some Black (not blackeyed) Gobies here.

Image

We ran into Flatfish in the shallows (Plaice?) and Hermit Crab were all over the place.

Image

Image

Image

We ran into what looks like a Northern Spearnose Poacher here – not sure if it is the same as our species, but they do look alike.

Image

Image

Here are some of the algae and sponges growing on the wall. My favorite was the look alike to our Pink Mouthed Hydroid that grew in beautiful little clumps! There was also many what looked like Orange Social Ascidians on the wall as well.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

But my very favorite is the North Sea version of our Decorated Warbonnet. So cool! This guy was good sized, maybe 8 to 10 inches long.

Image

Image

Image

And finally, another unidentified Sculpin, a Poacher, and the ubiquitous Wrasse that are all over the place here.

Image

Image

Image

Image

As a critter geek I would LOVE to spend a week or so diving here and getting to know these unique animals that live in this part of the world!

If you made it this far, thanks for reading! Clicking on any of the pics will take you to my Flickr album with more shots…
