Join Paragon Dive Group’s Ben Lair on an incredible adventure to dive the German Fleet wrecks of Scapa Flow.

Scapa Flow is one of the jewels in the crown of UK scuba diving. The remains of the German fleet still lie in the flow, heavily protected from any sort of salvage or interference by divers. Their legacy is some of the best scuba diving in the world, the behemoths of the battleships rising from 45m to 22m, guns pointing into the green, seemingly on eternal patrol. The stricken cruisers on their sides, their superstructures slowly falling to the seabed after nearly 100 years underwater.

All of the WWI German wrecks lie approximately 50 minutes from the port of Stromness. All have a shotline on them. Maximum depths to the seabed is around 45m. Shallowest depth to the seabed is around 12m. The wrecks are at depths that will allow two long dives per day. Water temperatures are expected between 6-10C (38-48F).

We will be diving “The Big Seven” with 12 Technical CCR or OC dives spread over 6 diving days. Some of the wrecks we will be visiting are: SMS Markgraf, SMS Kronprinz Willhelm, SMS König, SMS Brummer, SMS Dresden, SMS Cöln, SMS Karlsruhe, and more.

You must be at least 150 Helitrox certified on the configuration you are diving and comfortable in cold water and challenging diving conditions.
