Konig, Scapa Flow dive site

Starfish on the Konig, Scapa Flow dive site

Scuba Diving in Scapa Flow, Scotland, UK, Europe

Dive Site: Konig

Location: 58°53.13N; 3°09.07W

Description: 26 000 ton battleship

Length: 177 metres (581 feet)

Depth: 14 - 39 metres (46 - 128 feet)

Visibility: 15 metres (50 feet)

Rating: *****

This was the least impressive of the fleet in my opinion, but still a good dive. It is upside down, with the starboard side nearly on the sea floor and the port side embedded, but large sections of the hull are exposed from blast damage. The wreckage is quite warped and twisted and because of its size it would be difficult to cover the whole ship in one dive. A few guns protrude from below the heap and the view across the seabed is of intricately criss-crossed beams. Some penetration is possible, but expect to double back on yourself.
