A good example of a wreck is near the city of Pori: Everilda. It is located at a depth of 24-33 meters, it is
72.9 meters long and 10.4 meters wide. It should be remembered that in Finnish waters, visibility can vary drastically.
Water clarity will certainly not be as satisfactory as in e.g. nearby Norway, not to mention the Red Sea. In addition
to starfish, sea urchins and sea anemones, there is good chance that you will spot crabs, fish from the scorpion
fish family, mackerel, cod and other sea creatures.
Finland, however, also includes lakes in which you can dive, sometimes even quite deep. Examples
of lakes are Päijänne,
Inari. Remember that the waters here
are cold, however, so you should always use a dry suit and the other equipment which is appropriate for diving in
While we are talking about Finland, we should mention the Åland Islands. Located at the entrance
to the Gulf of Bothnia, it is largely autonomous, and Swedish is spoken here. It is here that you will find
interesting wrecks, including the wreck of the Plus sailing ship resting on the seafloor at
a depth of 35 meters, and the wreck of the S.S. Helge.
The length of Finland's coastline, including its islands, is 4,500 kilometers. Cold water, the occasionally
capricious weather, and the difficulty to find a diving center can be discouraging — suffice it to say that it is
not easy to dive in Finland, but with a lot of good planning and a little patience, you can yourself immersed in the
impressive waters inland and surrounding this peaceful country.
