About the event
Come along for a dive in George Town on The Avon!
The Tamar has some spectacular diving, but please remember visibility is typically poor and there will be current present. As with all Tamar dives, we require you carry an SMB & torch throughout the dive.
The Avon is a tugboat that was abandoned in York Cove after running aground at Low Head in 2012 and ended up taking in water and sinking. It now rests at around 17-18m deep and makes for a great local shore dive.
Location: York Cove
Parking in the street at either the northern end of Esplanade S, George Town or the corner of Ferry Boulevard / Adelaide Street
