Involvement in wreck discovery

Wey Chieftain IV has for many years been involved in the process of wreck search and discovery.

Partnering with the survey vessel Coastal Guardian which conducts seabed surveys using sidescan sonar, Wey Chieftain IV has been following up on interesting targets identified in the surveys by diving the targets with small groups of divers. This has lead to numerous new wreck site discoveries, some of which have been further explored up by Historic England and Wessex Archaeology, again using Wey Chieftain IV as the dive platform.

 

Opportunities for diving new targets

Target dives can be built into our regular charter bookings, although often new targets are more suitable to smaller groups. If this is an area that interests you please contact us and we can provide more details.
