The Aeolian Sky – the other iconic Portland dive! The Aeolian Sky was a Greek-run freighter built in 1978, which collided with another ship near the Channel Islands and after a failed attempt at salvage sank off the coast of Dorset, England in a storm in late 1979.
Depth: 28 – 30M
Quals: PADI Advanced Open water or equivalent
Since her sinking the wreck has become a popular dive site as she is accessible from Swanage, Weymouth and Isle of Portland based diving trips. At the time of sinking she lay 9 metres below the surface but salvage work, and explosives used to reduce the risk of her becoming a hazard to navigation, have lowered this to 18 metres. Her bows were blown off during this activity and lie separate from the main body of the wreck.
