Panther Shoal lies in line with the Western end of Plymouth Breakwater and extends parallel to the main shipping channel about ¾ of a mile. The top of the shoal is around the 10m mark whilst the base lies around 19m. What makes this location interesting, apart from the marine life, is that Panther Shoal lies directly between the firing line and fall of shot from both Fort Picklecombe and Breakwater Fort. As such the observant diver can find cannon balls and shot, which litter this area.
