Scenic Diving Sites

Scenic Dive Sites

Orkney is famous for its prolific wreck sites. What is often overlooked is the fact that its pristine waters and dramatic rock formations provide some spectacular scenic diving. Cliff faces, huge boulders and storm gullies, kelp forests and maerl beds all support an abundant variety of marine life. Sites include Stanger Head, Inganess and the Kame of Hoy.

Most of these sites are outside Scapa Flow and can be weather dependant. Depths vary from 12 - 40 metres.
