Attraction Information



For underwater photographers, the bow makes for a fantastic photo opportunity!

The wooden wheel house of the Jacquin can be entered via a hole in the roof...

Two shot lines are tied off on the Jacquin - one on the bow and another on the stern...
What diving trip would be complete without the obligatory dive on a sunken ship wreck! Whilst we can't promise you'll find sunken treasure within her hold, we're sure you'll find a dive on the Jacquin II to be an exhilerating experience!

Lying in just 20m of water with the top of the wreck at 17m, the Jacquin II is a 15m long wooden cabin cruiser that provides a perfect introduction to wreck diving for less experienced divers. The wreck offers a number of features worth investigating including the wheel house area which can be accessed via a hole in the roof. By dropping down through the roof, you can explore the wreck's innards in safety.

a short surface swim out from the quayside, the Jacquin II makes a perfect first dive of the day for those who want to stay within the 18m depth range. Lying just a short distance from the Wheelhouse, divers can visit both attractions in a single dive with ease. Once you hit your minimum air limit, make a leisurely ascent back to the quayside by heading due south...

The wreck has two shot lines tied off onto hand rails on the bow and stern, allowing easy ascent and descent for those still finding their way around the quarry.
SAFETY FIRST: Although the Jacquin can be penetrated beyond the wheel house, we strongly recommend that divers do not attempt to do so. Be safe - look but do not enter.

Pete
Vobster Quay doesn't just puddle jump. After trips to Naples last Autumn and Mull in March, Pete Shaw takes the helm for an early season Cornwall fix. Later this year, we have Plymouth weekender, Normandy wrecks and Malta to make full use of the training gained at Vobster and extend confidence and skills into rewarding diving. Interested in trips or training - get in touch, we have options for everyone. Cheers, Tim
