LOUIS SHEID

Groot Brittanie

/ 1

Louis Sheid is a beautiful, sheltered dive site with plenty of marine life and the shallow wreck of the Louis Sheid. This makes it an excellent dive site for beginning divers and snorkelers. The wreck lies broken up on the sea floor. Large parts of the hull are still easily recognizable. The boilers are exposed and easy to find.

Particulars

The wreck of the Louis Sheid can be reached from the beach. Park at the parking lot. Now swim out 200 yards to get to the wreck. The Louis Sheid fled the German U-47 in 1939 after rescuing survivors from the bombed-out ship, the Tajandoen. In a desperate attempt, it sailed inland but ran aground near Thurlestone Bay. Both crews were rescued.

Warnings

Never enter the water in high waves at Louis Sheid. Choose for a boat dive as an alternative.
