Diving in The Little Belt

One of the best places to dive in Northern Europe!

There are many excellent diving spots around Middelfart and Fredericia. The variation below the surface of The Little Belt is unique. The possibilities of wall diving, current diving and deep diving directly from the beach have made The Little Belt one of the best diving spots in northern Europe. When you dive at the Old Little Belt Bridge you will experience the beautiful granite-clad bridge pier and large rocks with breadcrumb sponge in a rich orange colour by diving.

The area also offers the best wall dive in Denmark. A spectacular wall full of life. Large colonies of sole, pink oaten pipe hydroids, giant plumose anemones and more. Chance of diving down to 40 m.

Diving Spots

Diving in Lillebælt is extremely attractive, particularly because there is a possibility of diving along “the wall”

The variation of the Little Belt provides unique experiences for diving

You can experience everything ranging from cod fry and small pipefish to large blocks of clay, located as clusters on a coral reef and are good hiding places for fish. Here you often encounter large cod and trout. There is strong current in the belt, so if you have the opportunity, having a support boat and /or a surface crew on land is a good precaution. Beneath the surface you will also find one of the largest porpoise populations due to the diverse life below the surface. It's no coincidence that divers from all over Europe love to dive in the Little Belt at Middelfart and Fredericia. Magnificent diving experiences underwater are guaranteed.
