Scuba Diving South Coast England, UK, Europe
Dive Site: The Aristos
Depth: 54 metres (177 feet)
Visibility: 15 metres (50 feet)
The wreck of the Aristos is perfectly intact with lots of interesting superstructure. There is the opportunity of some penetration. Launch is best from Brighton.
Rik Vercoe, BSAC Advanced Instructor
We dived this wreck 18th July 2006, flat sea and bright sunshine. The shot line was across the deck which allowed us to continue the descent down the hull passing around the point of the bows and touching down at 59 metres. Looking up, the 15 metre wall of the hull was stunning. Ascending to the decks and exploration of the machinery and a peep in to the forehold. The holds are big, open and safe to penetrate. We had 10+ metres of viz which made this a stunning dive. The wreck is sitting perfectly upright with the foremast still standing high above the deck. Out of Brighton Marina on Brighton Diver.
