Dive Site: The Robert

Location: 51°11'24"N; 4°38'48"W (Lundy Island, North Devon)

Description: Wreck

Depth: 22 - 28 metres (72 - 92 feet)

Visibility: 5 - 15 metres (15 - 50 feet)

Rating: ****

The Robert sank in 1975 and now lies intact on its starboard side. It is best dived at low water slack, but this wreck is diveable on nearly all of the flood tide. There is a strong current on ebb tide, especially during spring tides. Depths of 22m to the bottom at low tide, 28m at high. A good sized wreck for one dive. Excellent dive worth making the effort, vis usually good.

The quality of marine life on this wreck is outstanding. A torch is recommended for close inspection into the hull where you may see the odd lobster.
