Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

The water around Tory Island is ideal for diving and very popular with diving clubs. There is unusual underwater scenery and good visibility with plenty of marine life. Huge granite boulders are found strewn over cobble seabed with sheer cliffs, arches and whirlpools cut by the tide. The wreck of the HMS Wasp is situated just off Tory Island with a dive depth of about 15 meters on a sandy seabed. The wreck lies mainly in gullies near the shore where two nice cannons can be seen. Choose from sheltered, shallow coves through to wall dives and wreak dives and enjoy the company of seals and dolphins, often seen on these dives.
