 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The wreck of the SS Abessinia, which hit the rocks around Knivestone and sank in 1921. She was a 5,700 ton German Steamer. The wreck is broken up in places but you can still see the engine, boilers and anchor.
The wreck lies in a area covered in soft coral growth with excellent visibility due to the currents. As with all sites in the Farne Islands, you are very likely to see seals on the surface, as well as pups joining you while diving.
The wreck lies between rocks which form a variety of gullies to explore after you have seen the wreck.
SMB's are required to surface with, due to currents usually picking up at the end of a dive.
