Dunraven Wreck NEXT DIVE

wreck

When I dive the Thistlegorm I generally go into the first level to have an explore around the trucks and bikes, then make my way down to the lower level and its coal bunker. As you come out you can either go over to the blast area or around to the bow anchors to make a swift visit to the captain's bathroom. I've seen lots of jacks and trevallies, a huge napoleon wrasse and even a turtle on the wreck. A very nice wreck with plenty of penetration opportunities and the holds are really interesting. On the seabed at 30m two locomotives can be found, one on each side of the wreck.

A word of warning the current can be strong while on the bow or on the shot line. Can also be very busy. Has been known to have 20 dive boats above it
