England is an island country and the sea surrounding it offers some very good and varied diving. The English coast is littered with wrecks (for example Scapa Flow or St Abbs) which come go as far back as the Tudor times through to the two world wars.


However England diving is not only about wrecks, the rocky coastlines provide interesting reefs and abundant marine life. In Anglesey, there are pinnacles that make very interesting dive sites and where drift dives can be conducted. There is a number of interesting inland dive sites like The Blue Planet, in Chesire. This is the largest aquarium tank in Europe and you can dive with sharks.

Diving in England can be a very surprising experience as many divers seem to think that there isn't much to see there. On the contrary England's diving has lots to offer. Given its maritime history, wrecks literally litter England's waters. Many wrecks are regular dive sites but there are still many that have not even been discovered yet. The wrecks are also at different depths, some in pretty shallow waters which gives more divers a chance to make the wreck experience. It's quite difficult to speak about the best places to dive in England there are many dive places each with something different and special.

In Scotland's Aberdeen area there are lots of wrecks to explore and the Moray Firth is well known for its dolphins and whales. There is also some good scenic diving here. Cornwall is famous for its wrecks and basking sharks which can be seen around the Cornwall coastline around April - June.

In Anglesey is said to have over 400 known wrecks. Wales boasts a wide and rich variety of marine life including dolphins and porpoises. Needless to say that this area is also famous for its wrecks like The Lucy which is the most dived wreck in Wales. Another one is the Capernwray whose attractions include a mine sweeper, a Wessex Dragonfly helicopter and various wrecks. Last but not least is the Stoney cove which also has different attractions like a Hydrobox, a bus, a helicopter and a boat with a treasure chest. These inland dive sites are used for training for first open water dives.
