Most visitors to Vobster Quay will all be familiar with our original sunken shipwreck attraction, the Jacquin II - but did you know that Vobster features a second large boat wreck at an even shallower depth?

Suitable for divers of all levels, the Peveril Pride sits in just 10 metres of water and enjoys improved visibility due to its remote location away from many of the more popular attractions. Located on the opposite bank just a short surface swim from the quayside, this rarely visited dive attraction provides a perfect introduction to wreck diving for less experienced divers.

Originally built in 1968 by Ron Berry in Weymouth, the Peveril Pride is a 10 metre long fishing boat. With her fishing days now behind her, the Peveril Pride now plays host to a large colony of Perch that have taken up residence in her wheelhouse. Her large rear deck has been uncovered to reveal the Gardner 6LW diesel engine that used to power her through the water.

The wreck offers a number of features worth investigating including the wheel house which can be accessed via a side door. Although very restricted, it's worth poking your head through the doorway to have a good look around inside - chances are that you'll see lots of fish in there! The wreck has a shot line tied off onto one of the wheelhouse window frames, allowing easy ascent and descent for those still finding their way around the quarry.
SAFETY FIRST: Only very experienced divers with overhead environment training should enter this dive attraction. Movement inside is restricted and the cold, darkness and depth can be very disorientating. If in doubt, DO NOT ENTER!
