Diving in Cornwall
The coast around Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is dotted with hundreds of shipwrecks with high concentrations around the Manacle Rocks off the Lizard Peninsula and amongst the Scillonian archipelago.
Whatever your choice of dive site or reason for diving, there are a number of Diving Schools in Cornwall who will be only too happy to help you out:
