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.

Fancy seeing something different in the dark? This Thursday our friends from Linear Guidance Illumination - LGi will be at Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre demonstrating their illuminated marker systems. Used by the police and the military, as well as many commercial organisations, maybe this is how we should mark out all our routes and features for safer low-light and dark diving conditions? Come along and see what you think! Cheers, Pete
