Sovereign Harbour Eastbourne is a Premier Marina which has fast become one of the largest marina developments in the UK. It’s growth over the past years has been staggering, it now provides visitors, whether it be by land or sea, with access to some of the finest diving on the south coast of England.
Sussex Shipwrecks Between Beachy Head and Dungeness, there are wrecks of all shapes and sizes, including liners, merchant ships, warships and submarines, all in very accessible depths. Probably one of the nicest things about diving around Eastbourne is that most of your diving can be between 20-40mtrs. For the more experienced diver, there are some exceptionally good wrecks in the 40-55mtr range and for the Tri-mix/technical diver, wrecks up to 70mtrs.
