Spider Crabs at Martins Haven, Pembrokeshire, Wales 2016

Myself and Rach visit Martins Haven for a dive a few times a year, it's one of my favourite places to dive in Pembs, not just because I have the same name as the small bay there, but because of the awesome kelp that you are greeted by on this shoredive and the sealife that surrounds it. 

In the photos are spider crabs which had made their way up to the shallows, approx 6m deep to mate with others. There is also a cool looking toad crab which had camouflaged itself in beautiful reds, pinks and green weeds and algae.
