Heard the one about the Blue Hole? Or maybe it was the Blue Lagoon? I’m sure most of us have heard stories of ‘secret’ dive sites before; they normally surface after a few beers following a hard days diving. Those telling the story will often reminisce about a time when diving involved a degree of exploration and adventure! With that in mind I decided to seek out some of these lost treasures for myself and set out on a series of UK Diving Adventures!
A 65m Shipwreck and a technical diving ‘career’ hanging by a thread. The not-so secret sinking of a British Batttleship and a chance encounter with an apex predator. 100 years on since the sinking of HMS Audacious, I recount my dive on the most famous of the Malin Head shipwrecks.
Deep, dark & dangerous. Just some of the words used to describe the abandoned slate quarry known as Dorothea in North Wales. Despite the warnings and an unofficial ‘ban’ by diver training agencies, why do divers continue to flock here?
