Niall Tracey, Em­met McAvoy, and Al­bert Kerr had an ex­ploratory dive in a sec­tion of Grey­stones Har­bour. No fish, or shell life was seen. The un­der­wa­ter vis­i­bil­ity was ap­prox­i­mately one and a half me­tres, and the depth of the dive was 7.2 me­tres.

Fur­ther into the har­bour the depth was greater. Un­der­wa­ter rocks in the area should even­tu­ally be a haven for marine life pro­vided there is not too much pol­lu­tion.
