About

Steinvika, on the west side of Langesundtangen, is a fairly exposed place where you can dive along large sections of relatively shallow water. You can also dive from land here and in Krogshavn, if you prefer shallow dives in slightly less exposed locations. Both Steinvika and Krogshavn offer varied bottom conditions. There is good parking at both locations, but you have to carry your gear a few metres to the water.

The stretch of water from the mouth of Krogshavn northwards to Sandvika is the place to go if you enjoy wall diving in exposed locations. The sea can be quite rough when the winds are from the south to south-west, and diving here requires a boat. The wall is the same type of steep edge seen in many places in Grenland’s sedimentary rock types. The wall has good overhangs and a rich hard-bottom fauna. Many species of fish thrive along the wall, and now and then there are fairly dense populations of crabs in the crevices and niches.

There are several shallows out in the Rognfjord that are worth a dive. However, the area is very exposed to wind from all directions and the sea can readily become rough.
