The coast around West Sussex and the Isle of Wight for wreck diving is excellent and Triton Scuba is ideally situated if you want to explore it. So it is not surprising that there is great wreck diving around the area. A naval base throughout history, the waters around Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight are abundant with a large number of wrecks from both World Wars and before. Everything from wooden sailing ships to submarines and ocean liners. The depths range from about 17 metres to 45 metres, but the majority of the major wrecks can be found in about 20 – 30 metres making it ideal for recreational diving. For more information about the opportunities go to the Dive Site page Visibility in the area can be variable. On a good day, 10m is possible and at 35m you can see without a torch. However, most of the time we get around 4 – 6m depending on what the tides are doing. Having dived the area for many years we know just about all the wrecks in the area so if you want to know more just ask. We think the diving is fantastic and we hope you will join us to find out why. We have a regular programme of dives throughout the season, however, if there is something you particularly want to do, or you have dates you want to book, let us know – we will be more than happy to help you.

Diving in the Solent is very different to places like the Red Sea. So while you might have lots of dives under your belt in tropical climes please use caution and common sense when diving here. We will be happy to advise you if you wish. All divers must be in possesion of a delayed SMB, reel, and a dive computer, we have these available to rent from the dive centre.
