  At this time of year the seaweed in the Fleet is growing fast and the underwater world is at its most colourful. Parts of the seabed in the lower Fleet are carpeted in green and brown filamentous algae moving gently in the current. Why not take a trip on the Fleet Observer to view this spectacle.
