Dive into history
With the SS “Nord” shipwreck
The wreck of SS “Nord”
She was a cargo ship of 88m carrying case oil when she sank on November 8th, 1915, after striking a sunken pinnacle. All her crew survived. She now lies in 42m depth and is one of Tasmania’s few “intact” shipwrecks. Although the superstructure has collapsed, she still resembles a ship, the bow and stern are still reasonably intact and the rudder still moves! The wreck has attracted a variety of fish and is covered in colorful encrusting marine life.
The wreck of the SS “Nord” is a dive for experienced divers only, with a minimum of Deep Diver Specialty (or equivalent) qualification. The site is exposed to southerly and easterly weather and can be prone to currents. Booking is essential.
