Dive site, Wijkertunnel, lies in the northern bowl of the Noordzeekanaal (North Sea Canal). It's a special dive site, wit brackish water, located under a tunnel (Wijkertunnel). The Wjkertunnel is home to both fresh and salt water fish, such as bass, flatfish, pike and crabs. Striking are the many thousands of trumpet baskets which overlap the quay wall. Take your diving lamp and your camera with you.
Enter the water via the basalt blocks. Then swim at 6 meters in northeastern direction until you reach the quay wall. Watch how the wall is completely overgrown by trumpet worms (Ficopomatus enigmaticus). Now descend to the bottom and follow the niches in the wall. Each niche forms a small biotope, often with a woolly crab as main occupant. Return after 30 minutes at about 4 meters and finish your dive in the shallow parts along the basalt blocks.
Only dive in the bowl to avoid the busy waterway. Slight current caused by boats. Stones at entry point may be slippery.
