Diving the Caroline Wreck

The Caroline wreck is situated in Milford Haven, quite close to the Dakotian wreck.

The wreck is quite a small wreck compared with the Dakotion. It was built in 1930, by n v Schps v/h Bonn & Mees, in Rotterdam. It had one boiler, a triple expansion engine of 84nhp, single shaft. She was hired by the RN from 1940, converted into a minesweeper and given a Dutch crew. However in 1941 she was sunk by a German mine.

The bow section is impressive and the back of the ship can be entered and swum through, exiting up through the bow section.

Here is a small video of a club diver Chris Hall on his club dive of the wreck. If you would like to learn to dive or learn to wreck dive, get in touch on 07534 387152 or use the link below;

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. My real passion lies in combining mountains and water and as such you’ll often find me either in the mountains altitude diving, or in the mountains ice diving. Both exhilarating and peaceful – allowing me to regenerate the inner me, whilst pushing myself physically and mentally.
