De Hoek is a nice dive site with plenty of facilities nearby. The current however can be quite strong. Dive at low tide if you want to return to the entry point downstream. The underwater world of De Hoek consists of the dike wall and several sandy bottoms. Both biotopes are home to numerous species that are common tot the Eastern Scheldt Estuary. You'll see lobsters, crabs, nudibranchs, sponges and much more. The spot is also called Wemeldinge West and is known to French-speaking Belgians as Napoleon's Hat.

Particulars

De Hoek lies directly west of dive site Galjoen zonder Poen, exactly where the dike makes a kink towards the Oosterschelde. Both dive sites are accessible via the same staircase. Enter the water and head west. You'll end up on a sandy bottom that turns into a stone wall after about 5 minutes of swimming. The wall is nicely covered with sponges and oysters and runs north for a while before turning west. At about 25 meters the wall changes back into a sandy bottom. Dive between 10 and 15 meters over the wall and return to the entry point at 10 meters.

Warnings

Dive site De Hoek is also a fishing site. Consult with any anglers present. Always dive around the turn of the tide to prevent very strong currents.
