Dive Site: Galicia

Location: Off of the Torbay coast

Description: Wreck

Depth: 18 metres (60 feet)

Visibility: 5 - 6 metres (15 - 20 feet)

Rating: ***

This is a very broken up wreck but worth a visit, much to see congers, pollock, white cluster anemones, sea fans, Devonshire cup corals, lobsters, crabs and much more. Viz can be poor but still worth a visit. Teign Dive Centre visit this wreck most weekends.

Dived on Sat (10/05/2008). Weather was perfect but visibility very poor at approx. 1.5 metres. Very silty site, wreck is very, very broken up. It spans approx. 2 football pitches. Unfortunately we had several day angler boats as we went in but that didn't seem to put them off so a tangle of fishing line also added to the frustration. Not sure I would consider diving again.
