Le Throstle

Located off the coast of Metropolitan France, dive into the depths of a small British freighter that met its demise in 1919. This 90-meter-long ship sank after colliding with a rock on the Helle plateau, creating a captivating site for divers. With a maximum depth of 22m, this wreck offers an ideal experience for both beginner and advanced divers.

As you descend into the crystal clear waters, you'll discover the remnants of this historic vessel. The two vertically positioned boilers stand as a testament to the ship's former glory, inviting exploration. Surrounding the wreck, you'll be greeted by breathtaking rocky peaks and a picturesque white sandy bottom.

The vibrant marine life that calls this wreck home adds a touch of natural beauty to the site. Marvel at the colorful flora, pearl anemones, daisies, and alcyon that adorn the surrounding rocks. Keep an eye out for a delightful shoal of pout gracefully gliding over the bridge of the ship, enhancing the enchanting underwater experience.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced diver, this dive site offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in history, explore diverse marine life, and create unforgettable memories. Discover the allure of this sunken British freighter and embark on an extraordinary underwater adventure in France's coastal waters.
