  • Scapa Flow

    Scapa FlowThe main attraction at Scapa Flow is of course the 3 battleships and 4 light cruisers of the High Seas Fleet and the diving does tend to focus on these awesome wrecks. There are however many other fine wrecks to dive such as the WW II escort vessel F2, the nearby barge YC 21, the blockships and the trawler James Barrie.

     

     

     

     


  • Sound of Mull

    Rondo

    The Sound of Mull is perhaps second only to Scapa Flow as the most well known of Scottish dive areas. Situated on the west coast of Scotland the 14 mile long Sound is a navigable channel some 2-3 miles wide which separates the beautiful Isle of Mull from mainland Scotland.

     

     

     

     

     

  • English Channel

    English Channel WrecksThe English Channel is perhaps the main focus of wreck diving south of the border. When I wrote Dive England's Greatest Wrecks I found that the wrecks seemed to bunch into three main groups.

     

     

     

     

     

  • Norway

    NorwayThe fabulous crystal clear waters and well preserved shipwrecks of Norway are easily reached from the UK by air - our flights from Aberdeen are just one hour in duration. Norway is perhaps not the first name that pops into your mind when you’re planning a dive trip – but if you like shipwrecks and are a competent dry suit diver it is an atmospheric place to be with wreck diving as good as it gets.

     

     

     

     

  • South China Sea

    Prince of Wales GunAfter a 13 hour flight from London we arrived in Singapore where we boarded our hard boat for the trip. The main focus was to dive the two famous British WWII warships HMS Repulse & HMS Prince of Wales. The two vessels were sunk by massed Japanese torpedo bombers in the same action - and now lie on the bottom some eight miles apart, 200 miles north of Singapore about 50 miles off the land.  The loss of Prince of Wales was the first time that a battleship had been sunk in action by air power and is seen as defining the end of the era of the battleship and ushering in the era of sea borne air power.
