It is known that Great Britain has been a maritime power for centuries, hence
a very large number of wrecks are found in its local waters, and new ones are still being discovered.
In 2012, the English guide to native wrecks was published.
A good place for diving, among others, is the port of Portland. You can dive there with only a OWD certificate,
because some wrecks lay at depths of only about a dozen meters.
Towards the northern border, where England meets Scotland, there is a small archipelago, called the
Farne Islands. A colony of about 5,000 gray seals live there, and dive boats set off from the nearby
Sea House. Viewing these mammals is very joyful and interesting. Seals like to interact with divers and like
to show off their great swimming skills.
In England there are also several quarries with well-prepared diving bases. For example, Vobster
near Radstock or Stoney Cove near Stoney Stanton.
If you are planning on visiting the United Kingdom, is worth spending some time looking for interesting diving sites.
Many sites are best accessed by boat, but there are are also plenty that can be accessed from off a beach.
After finishing a good day of diving, a delicious, classical meal of fish & chips and English beer will be waiting
for you. If you want to have a great diving adventure, you certainly cannot go wrong with visiting the UK.
