Thistlegorm: reopens tomorrow

Thistlegorm: reopens tomorrow


The wreck of the SS Thistlegorm will be open again for diving from tomorrow, Sunday 16th December 2007. Following an intense operation, conservation work to preserve this legendary wreck has been extremely successful and finished on schedule. We encourage all diving boats and operators to support the scheme and make use of the new mooring system. In addition to the moorings, holes have been drilled in the wreck as air-escape outlets. Further holes will be drilled at a later date but will not require further closure of the site. HEPCA would like to thank all those individuals and organizations who gave their valuable cooperation and support and were instrumental in making this pivotal event happen. Special thanks to all those diving operators and guests for their understanding in being unable to dive the SS Thistlegorm during the period of this urgent conservation work.
