General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Can launch from Oban harbour, fishermans pier or Dunstaffnage yacht anchorage for 10/boat. Can approach from Lochaline on Morven, a long vehichle drive but short boat journey (5mins)
Notes :

Excellent wreck, best dived at slack water. The hull panels have been blown off by salvage workers leaving the ribs exposed upon which grows a multitude of life. Plenty of friendly fish around also. The wreck is wide open, so you can enter the majority of it and always see out, which in itself makes for a fabulous dive! Excellent for photographers. As with all Sound of Mull wrecks though it is unpleasant to dive on unless you have slack water.
