General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Meanish Pier NG154506
Notes :

This is a very good wreck which is only really diveable at slack water. The hull is rather twisted so it is possible to see under/into various other parts even though it is inverted. The surrounding sea bed is covered in soft-corals and dead mans fingers and the wreck itself is home to a multitude of fish. I believe from other people that there is a place where there is a dip in the sea bed under the wreck big enough for divers to pass through although I never saw this myself. It is easy to locate and is definately worth a dive.

Ray manchester dived just recently (june 2000) 20m viz plenty of large fish everywhere lots of places to get into and still stuff on it. Two propellers of different sizes not sure if they are from the same wreck. Much better dive than the Stassa, Very underated wreck dive.
