Thistlegorm Wreck Specs
Location: 27 48 800 N / 33 55 250 E
Length: 126m (415ft)
Because of the size of the wreck and the enormous amount to see both outside and inside the wreck, normally divers make 2 dives the first being an orientation around the wreck, followed by a second wreck penetration. We don’t want to give too much away about this dive site as it’s truly magical and even when listening to the detailed dive briefing, it doesn’t do the dives justice. You have to see it yourself to believe it!
Is it worth the 5.30am wakeup call and 3.5 hours boat ride? We think so!
Diver tip: Because of the depth of the wreck both dives are considered deep dives and divers can expect strong currents. As such, divers should be a minimum of Advanced Open Water or equivalent and have good buoyancy skills. It is beneficial to also be an enriched air diver so as to maximise the allowable bottom time, especially during the second dive due to surface intervals of around 1/1.5 hours.
