Over 20,000 people saw our AprilFools post last week, but we’ve got some very exciting real news today for divers!
Later today we will be installing our latest underwater attraction, ‘Caroline’.
This 35 Tonne steel trawler traveled over 500 miles from Aberdeen in 2013 to its final home as an underwater diving attraction at the National Diving & Activity Centre.
We have recently been completing the final works to our latest underwater attraction, and this weekend the original prop was welded into place.
The new boat, named ‘Caroline’ is 11.33 metres long and the plan is to place her in the water at around 25m, providing a fantastic wreck diving experience.
