Wrecks of Pembrokeshire:
You have hit the jackpot! Here we have every wreck that sunk around the coastline of Pembrokeshire, most of which are still undiscovered. Use the list for research and good hunting.
Sort after is the Santa Cruz which sank November 1st 1679 off the Pembrokeshire coast, some say in St Brides Bay. It was carrying gold and has never been found. The stories go on and on and there is still much yet to be discovered in Pembrokeshire.
Dive Pembrokeshire run special mid week breaks from Tuesday to Thursday specially to search for wrecks in the area. The best of the tides are choisen which opens a larger window for times to dive. For details of the Wreck Discovery Weeks.
