Dive Site Westkapelle is full of WO II remnants, including an anchor, old tank parts, tank barriers, a turret, an amphibious vehicle and an old bunker, which risies above the surface. Only dive here at low tide and keep in contact with the bottom to avoid sharp objects. Cuttlefish are regullarly seen here in spring. Take a look at the cuttlefish racks which are placed here by divers.
To reach the entry point a long walk has to be made. visibility is best around neap tide and with almost no wind. Enter the water where the bunker rises above water. Swim with the posts on your right to find the bunker, the amphibious vessel and the turret. Most remnants of the war can be found between five and seven meters. The tank barriers behind the clay ledge lie at a depht of 5 meters.
Don't dive at Westkapelle with wind speeds faster than 2. Don't enter the bunker. Stop diving when currents are too strong.
