  • Title: Dive Sites of South Cork
    Descriptive info: Dive Sites of South Cork.. Around the coast of Cork in Southern Ireland are some of the best dive sites in the World.. Within a short boat spin there are several well preserved ship wrecks in sport diving range, from the historic Aud to the interesting Santo and a number of armed trawlers including the Clifton and the Morococala.. Because of the warming influence of the Gulf Stream the diving in the south coast of Ireland is unique.. Many fish migrate along the Cork coast in the spring and summer time including Basking Sharks and Mola Mola (sunfish).. Diving in Cork you are likely to see fish that are supposed to live in much warmer seas for example the Red (Portuguese) Blenny and Trigger fish.. Of course here in Cork we have all the usual “Irish” fish as well.. Footage of a dive on the Santo by John Collins.. http://www.. johncollins.. ie/.. The Santo.. The Sante (commonly known as Santo) was a 128 ft 217 ton steam powered bucket dredger.. Her maiden voyage was to be a trip from the west coast of Scotland to the Island of Formosa (now known as Taiwan) which was then part of Japanese territory.. While on her way in December 1900 a gale forced the captain to head for Cork Harbour and on Christmas Day she sank, five of her crew were rescued form a life boat but the rest were drowned.. The wreck of the Santo lies in 28M (depending on tide) to the south east of Roche’s point.. The line of buckets can clearly be seen on the sea bed stretching away from a large wheel.. There are large holes in her boiler and looking through there it is possible to inspect the many fish that have made this interesting wreck their home.. The boiler and the anchor are also main focal points of the wreck.. This is a highly recommended dive with lots to see and at a depth that allows the diver reasonable bottom time.. The Aud.. Without doubt the.. Aud.. is the most famous ship wreck in the Cork Harbour area.. ;.. she was in fact a ship called the.. Libau.. She was carrying a cargo of arms to Ireland, to aid the 1916 Easter rising.. Masquerading as the.. Aud.. , an existing Norwegian vessel of similar appearance, she left the Baltic port of Lubeck on April 9th 1916, under the Command of Karl Spindler.. The.. , was carrying an estimated 20,000 rifles, 1000,000 rounds of ammunition, 10 machine guns, and explosives.. The Aud now lies in 36M of water and is very broken up.. There are a number of boilers to be seen along with thousands of bullets.. It is a popular dive because of its historical significance.. The UC-42.. During the first World War the German navy’s deadliest weapon was the subnarine.. They were responsible for the sinking millions of tons of Allied shipping.. The UC-42 was a mine laying sub, and was recorded as being lost off Queenstown (Cobh), Cork on Sept 9.. 1917 and again off Queenstown on 31 Oct.. The second date is the more accepted one, when HMS Sarba and Sunshine depth charged a detected sub supposedly damaged on the bottom.. The damage is said to have resulted from one of her own mines.. In July1919, charges were detonated on either side of the UC-42 destroying the submarine.. The remains then dispersed along the seabed by means of wire sweeps.. The Sub was not destroyed however and in November 2010, the remains of the UC-42 were found by local divers.. She lies in 28M just East of the entrance to Cork Harbour.. Some of her cargo of mines still remain on her.. The wreck is home to some of the largest conger in the country.. As 27 Submariners lost their life in the Sub the wreck needs to be respected as a war grave.. A Diver inspects one of the mines on the UC-42.. The Clifton.. The Clifton was a 242 ton Steam fishing trawler, 126ft in length.. She  ...   was taken up by the Admiralty in May 1915.. She was assigned to Patrol area 21, that of the Queenstown Command, in Cork, she was armed with a 6lb Hotchkiss quick fire gun, and two type D depth charges.. In May 1915 the Morococala hit a mine and sank none of the 13 crew survived the sinking.. The Ling Rocks.. The Ling Rocks are some 9km South-South East of Oysterhaven.. The rocks are not exposed on the surface, rising from the sea bed the shallowest point is at about 22M at Low Water.. The Depths around the rocks go down to 70M.. A GPS mark is required to locate the rocks and diving at “the Lings” must be undertaken at slack water and it is advisable to drop a shot line.. It may or may not be necessary to reel off the shot depending on visibility and the distance you wish to travel on your dive.. There is actually no need to move at all as there is an abundance of life everywhere.. The colours of the anemone encrusted walls include all points of the colour wheel.. There are several different types of anemones here, from jewels, bead lets.. Plumose and many more.. There are bigger creatures living here too including various creepy crawlies in the form of lobster, cray, squat lobster, brown crab and spider crab to mention a few.. Sizable conger eels lurk in the many crevices in the rock and they have been known on occasion to chase divers who insisted on taking their photograph.. All around the rocks there are shoals of fish - whiting, hake, Pollack, wrasse and of course it’s not called the ling rocks for nothing because lings are present here too.. The Ling rocks is a fantastic scenic dive and is right up there among the must do dives along our coast.. Sovereign.. Islands.. These islands are little mort than very large rocks and are located much closer inshore they are only a very short boat spin from Oysterhaven.. There are two Islands the Big and Small Sovereign.. Diving at the Sovereigns is suitable for all grades of divers.. The Nellie Sovereign Islands.. On the South side of the Big Sovereign is the remains of a Dutch trawler “The Nellie” which is in about 15M.. The anchor of the Nellie was raised by some local divers a number of years ago and now stands at the top of the slip in Oysterhaven.. The Nellie is a lovely dive to potter around early in the season before the kelp grows.. There is an abundance of life on and around the wreck including many curious blennies.. The Grotto Sovereign Islands.. The nicest dive on the small Sovereign has to be the Grotto which is located at the Eastern end.. This takes some finding, but once found it makes for a sweet dive.. There are amazingly coloured jewel anemones lining the walls at the entrance to the Grotto.. It is possible to swim from one end and out the other.. Around the Sovereigns depths are approximately 12-15m.. Black Head.. Black Head is the headland inside the Old Head of Kinsale.. Maximum Diving Depths here are 17M but the best of the diving is in approximately 13M.. The Ground is a mixture of rocky reef and sandy gullies.. This is a great sight to spot Angler fish, In the Spring time it is possible to see lump suckers here guarding their eggs.. There is always something different to be seen here and the site is a Mecca for the macro photographer.. Bream Rock.. Heading west from Black Head just inside the Old Head of Kinsale is Bream Rock.. Bream Rock is a reef starting at 8M and depending to 25M.. A strong current runs here so this site is best dived at slack water.. Because of the strong currents, the reef is a wash of colour with many different types of anemones.. All the usual suspects can be spotted here lobsters, congers crabs and in the Spring time lump suckers can be seen..
