Isle of Man Scuba Diving
Dive Site: The Glendun
Location: Maughold, Isle of Man
Depth: 8 - 12 metres (25 - 40 feet)
Visibility: Up to 10 metres (30 feet)
The Glendun is a Belfast steamer that ran aground back in 1940. She lies just south of Maughold Head on the east coast of the Isle of Man, and is only accessible by boat. Lying right up close to the cliffs this dive provides some spectacular views for the journey there and for any surface intervals. The large majority of the structure has broken up and been scattered around the area, which can easily turn the dive into a scavenge and rummage for brass.
The centre piece of this dive is the boiler, the top of which can be easily spotted from above the surface. Raising 8 metres into the water, the structure looks pretty immense when swimming right next to it. Divers can swim down into any one of the three boiler casings or spend their bottom time rummaging around amongst the brass. With a max depth of around 12 metres and a position close to the cliffs, the wreck of the Glendun is a really good, easy, scenic dive.
