Far Mulberry

This dive site, located in the waters near Nyetimber, Arun, West Sussex, South East England, United Kingdom, is a must-visit for every diver. It holds great historical significance as it houses a Phoenix A1 Unit from the Mulberry Harbour, which was intended for use in Normandy after D-Day. This remarkable structure, along with a nearby Landing Craft and Cuckoo Rescue craft, is connected by ropes, creating a fascinating triangular Trail.

With a maximum depth of approximately 11m and visibility of around 4m, this dive site is suitable for divers of all levels, from beginners to experienced. The abundant marine life found here is truly captivating. You'll encounter vibrant Jewel Anemone soft corals, Nudibranchs, Tompot Blennies, Ballan Wrasse, Bib, Lobsters, Congers, Cat-Sharks, Cuttlefish, and if you visit in April, Lumpsuckers.

Photography enthusiasts will delight in the excellent photo opportunities available here, whether capturing macro shots or wide-angle scenes. The wreck is marked by a permanent line attached by a short chain, along with visibility markers, ensuring easy navigation. While the north end of the wreck is better preserved, the south end suffered fragmentation due to post-war bombing range activities.

For a more detailed description of this site, refer to Dive Sussex Wreck 59, pages 49-55. Additionally, don't miss the memorial plaque attached by the Selsey Bill Sub-Aqua Club on the SW corner. It serves as a poignant reminder of the historical significance and the dedication of divers to this location.

As with any dive site, it's important to be aware of potential hazards. While exploring, keep an eye out for dissolved concrete areas that may expose protruding reinforcing bars. However, these hazards are typically easy to spot and avoid.

Plan your dive trip to this enchanting dive site today and experience the beauty of both the underwater world and the historical remnants it holds.
