Scuba Diving Southwest Coast of England, UK, Europe

Dive Site: NG Peterson

Location: Near Falmouth, Cornwall

Description: Danish steamship

Depth: 21 - 23 metres (69 - 75 feet)

Visibility: 6 metres (20 feet)

Rating: ***

The Peterson and its cargo of 1900 tons of iron ore sank in 1918 after colliding with another ship. It sits on a sandy seabed, so visibility tends to be quite good. This is another very flattened wreck which is typical of the area, but there are still plenty of holes in which there are a number of conger eels, crabs, and a lobster rumoured to be 80 to 100 years old. The wreck is also home to a large number of bib that can be found in dense shoals. The Peterson is a ten minute boat ride north of Porthkerris Cove.
