Diving in the Sound of Mull is spectacular as a diving location. I’ve been there dived from the mainland side, as well as from the Isle of Mull and I love it.
There is a variety of great diving sites offering a plethora of wrecks and scenic diving. This trip is planned to be a predominately Wreck diving trip.
On 7th to 9th June 2019, we are running a 3 day dive trip to Lochaline on the mainland. The package includes 3 days of diving, accommodation and full board which includes a cooked breakfast, packed lunch and a 2 course evening meal. Put simply, all you have to do is turn up and dive.
Air fills are payable directly to the skipper depending on what you require.
The three day dive trip will be enough for divers to experience the main wreck sites, Hispania, Shuna, Thesis, Rondo and Breda, and some of the scenic & drift dives. A quick overview of these wrecks is as follows which I have taken from the dive boat operators site;
This Swedish merchant vessel (644 net tonnes) sank in 1954. The wreck remains fairly intact, and although she is gradually disintegrating with time, she remains one of Scotland’s finest wreck dives. The amount of marine growth over the hull during the summer months is quite exceptional. The Hispania is slack water dive.
Wrecked in 1913 while carrying a cargo of coal, the steel steamship Shuna, built in Holland (880 net tonnes), was discovered in 1991, and lies intact and upright in 30 metres (16 metres to the deck). The wreck can be dived at all states of the tide.
Wrecked in 1935, this tramp steamer (2363 gross tonnes and 80 metres in length) lies bow down in 54 metres on a steep slope with the stern in 9 metres. The ship is still reasonably intact and there is a route between the keel and the rock face at about 27 metres. A slack water dive.
Wreck of a Belfast steamer (151 net tonnes) lost in 1889. Lies at right angles to the shore, with her bow in 12 metres and her stern in 30-35 metres. Structurally intact and encrusted with marine life. Fantastic photographic dive.
The wreck of the Breda has been extensively salvaged, but most of the hull and some of the superstructure is intact. … After the invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, the Breda fled to Britain, where she was placed under the control of the P&O Line, and armed with a single 4.7-inch (120mm) gun.
