About The Event

Come out on our purpose built diving RIB where'll you'll get a chance to do a dive on the famous Kyarra:

Mid day dive: Kyarra (depth 28m)

Kyarra Wreck - off the coast of Swanage:

For ten years Kyarra sailed between Fremantle, Western Australia and Sydney, New South Wales carrying cargo and passengers. She sailed under the flag of the United Steam Navigation Company Limited of London. On 5 May 1918, Kyarra was sailing from Tilbury to Devonport to embark civilian passengers and take on full general cargo. However the Kyarra was sunk in 1918 by a torpedo, killing all 6 crew members.
