General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Bangor, N. Ireland
Notes :

This is a stunning dive in, usually, 20-30 metre vis. The wreck is upside down, but the engine room is open due to an explosion in a magazine. As a result of the explosion, munitions, including torpedoes and what we believe are 14" shells are strewn around the wreck and surrounding sea bed.
One of turrets lies to one side of the wreck with the barrels pointing at right angles to the hull. Lots of fish life, congas etc.
Not a dive to be undertaken lightly, Atlantic swells and the depth mean that experienced divers only should undertake this wreck, preferable using Tri-Mix
