The west coast of Norway has some world class diving all year round. Its an area with multitude of wrecks, rich flora and fauna with more than 1.400 marine species. That makes it eldorado for diving. Coral reefs, lush vegetation and big shoals of fish create wonderful colors and hence the underwater world is as great as coral reefs in warm seas. In Sveggvika we have easy access to both Kristiansund and Hustadvika Bay best divisites. To our favorite spots and wrecks its only up to 20 min by boat.
Estonian ship “Borghild” sunk outside Averoy 23rd February 1940 and it was loaded with carbide for England. Dense snow caused the ship to strike the rock and later exploded. The crew of 16 men was rescued. The wreck lies at the depth of 35-45m in one piece. The cause of sinking can be seen under the bow where are big holes. Some artifacts have been raised and preserved in the local Nordmore Museum.
Torpedo freighter “Torp” wrecked in the hurricane on the 1st of January 1992. It was built for the German Navy in 1943 and after the war was taken over by the Norwegian Navy. The bow of the wreck is at 10m depth and the stern lay firmly on the sandy bottom at 27m depth. The mast and rig are still standing, overgrown with kelp, algae and hydroids. As an ideal “artificial reef” the wreck has gathered a lot of wildlife.
A submerged rock “Midtfjordsfallet” is covered with a biological color mosaic with different white, yellow and orange soft corals and anemones are home to large schools of coalfish and pollack. The rock is shaped like an oval table with steep walls and small ledges in steps to all sides, between 3-10m depth. From 10-15m depth a vertical wall drops down to 30-45m depth where the bottom flattens out. Probably the nicest underwater scenary in the region.
