Diving in Newquay

This is a former fishing village on the Celtic Sea that is known for having over 30 shipwrecks under the waters off its shore. Some of the more famous wrecks to check out when diving here include the SS Hugin (sits at 38 meters/125ft below the surface and was sunk in 1918), the SS Christina (34 meters/111ft, 1918), the War Barron, (40 meters/131ft, 1918) the Syracusa (30 meters/98ft, 1897), and the Orfordness (32 meters/105ft, 1918). You will notice many of these sunk in 1918. This is because they were sunk by German torpedoes during WW I.
