Scapa Flow Charters
Jean Elaine and Sharon Rose
Archive pages: as time goes on we will be cataloging all the diving sites in Scapa Flow, Orkney, Shetland and beyond. Anywhere visited by the Jean Elaine will be documented here so you can see for yourself the range of diving offered by Scapa Flow Charters.
I see that some people are trying to rubbish our dive trips to the U102 and U92 amongst other things by suggesting that we did not actually identify them. This is unfortunate but we totally stand by that we have correctly identified them in the first instance. Before we make claims there are hours of research work done first, I know this is not everybody’s cup of tea but without the efforts of the researchers it would be a heck of a lot harder, again thank you to Kevin Heath, Michael Lowrey and Mattias Loehr.

Not all the wrecks are in the sea: sunk as a blockship, this ship is gradually moving inland!
