Explore wonderful wrecks

The UK's waters are renowned for its variety of shipwrecks – with more wrecks per mile of coastline than anywhere in the world. Wreck diving is one of the most popular diver pastimes in the UK, our marine environment can also rival some of the best in the world.

From the famous Scapa Flow in Orkney, Scotland, where eight German ships that were scuttled in 1919 now lie, to Plymouth's HMS Scylla, purposely sunk in 2004 to create an artificial reef. There are wreck sites around the UK coast to appeal to all, so why not take the plunge and explore the rich history beneath the waves?

As well as shipwrecks, there are cold water reefs, cave systems, wall dives, drifts, gullies and shallow bays to explore, why not join BSAC and start exploring them for yourself?

Marvellous marine life

The UK’s marine life is as diverse as it is wonderful.

From curious and graceful grey seals to the gentle giants of the sea, the basking shark, the UK has a myriad of different species of fish, mammal and crustaceans to spot during a dive. Explore reefs teeming with fish or marvel at ornate soft corals and their crustacean inhabitants, all within the coastal waters of the UK!
