This is a very good dive site if you have not dived a wreck before, this was my very first wreck.
Wow! I just got home after diving Portland Harbour on the first weekend of May 2008. The viz was great on the Dredger and there were plenty of crabs all around. I'd reccommend it to anyone!

This was my first dive of the season and it was so good. Lots of sea life in and around the wreck but also in the breakwater too. Very enjoyable.
