SS Rosslyn

The SS Rosslyn is our most popular dive site. She was a 3679 ton Cardiff steamer build in 1902.

Due to a strong south-west gale she dragged anchor and despite assistance from two government tugs she sunk the following morning. Thankfully no lives were lost as all crew were evacuated safely.

She now sits on a sandy seabed at the bottom of the South Mole in 23 meters of water and is 350 feet long.

What can be found on the site:

  • Octopus

  • Cuttlefish

  • Conger and moray eels

  • Nudibranchs

  • Spider crabs and common lobster

  • Wide range of fish species

This dive site is only accessible by boat and due to the depth is suitable for advanced cetified divers and upwards
