Gold Coast Wreck Dive - ThE Scottish Prince
Come join us on a wreck dive of the Scottish Prince just a few short minutes from the seaway by boat.
The Scottish Prince ran aground on 3 February 1887, during the final stage of its voyage from Glasgow. The bow of the iron hull is pointing towards the shore and is broken into three main sections. The bow and stern are both reasonably intact, however the side plates and decks have collapsed.
The Scottish Prince’s underwater superstructure is a habitat which provides food and shelter for a variety of marine life including sponges, corals, pelagic and reef fish, rays, octopus and wobbegong sharks.
Gold Coast REEF & WRECK DOUBLE DIVE
Palm Beach Reef, is a large reef of varying depths, perfect for any diver. With sections of the area as shallow as five metres, and other sections dropping to depths of 24 metres, there are lots of different environments here to explore.
One of our favourite sites is Clown City, it is a colourful site with as you can guess, a large population of anemone fish. From there you can drift towards the Gutters, the hot spot for leopard sharks in summer.
Then explore the wreck of the Scottish Prince, a passenger and cargo ship which ran aground in 1887. The Scottish Prince is home to an abundance of life including wobbegong sharks.
