Norfolk Dives

Weybourne (The Rosalie Shipwreck): The Rosalie was destroyed in 1915 and now sits just off the beach at a depth of approximately eight metres. She is a lovely dive and covered in a lot of sea life including crabs, anemones, sponges and fish. It is easiest to do the dive at Low Tide slack water. Park in Weybourne beach car park and walk west (left) along the beach for about 600 metres until you are level with the wreckage that sticks out of the water around low tide. Surface swim out to it then drop down.

Cley (The Vera Shipwreck): Ruined in 1914, she now sits just off the beach at approximately six metres deep. Another lovely dive which is easiest to find at Low Tide slack. Park in Cley beach car park (almost opposite the Cley Marshes bird reserve centre) and walk east (right) along the beach for 400 metres until you are level with the wreckage that sticks out of the water around low tide. Swim out to it and drop down.

Sheringham Gullies: Part of the famous chalk reef, the gullies are shallow ridges in the sea bed that are home to lots of marine life including crabs, lobsters, scorpionfish and more. Park on the Esplanade and head straight down to the beach. Surface swim out for a while then drop down and swim out north, then turn around and swim back in.

Important Information- These dives are not accompanied or guided, but we can put you in touch with others wanting to do them. Contact us and join our list so you can contact other divers directly. Alternatively, if you would like a dive master/guide we can provide you with one for a small cost.

The tides off the Norfolk coast are very strong and these dives must be carried out at slack water (when the water has least movement). As they are accessed by a steeply shelving beach, you need calm seas in order to get a safe entry and exit. You can calculate slack water as the centre is approximately 2 hours after low or high tide at Cromer. Slack water lasts for about 1 hour so you can therefore enter the water at approximately one and a half hours after high or low tide.

The gullies can be dived at low or high tide, but the wrecks are most easily done at low tide slack when the tips of the wrecks stick out of the water.
