Ponus Wreck

Categories: Tags: , ,

The Ponus was a 5077 ton oil tanker.It came ashore near Gyllyngvase Beach in November 1916. It’s cargo caught fire and kept Falmouth lit for three nights. It was heavily salvaged but there’s still quite a lot of remains.

Today it is well broken and often a lot is covered in sand. Still a nice rummage dive, the highest point is only about 2m. This is primarily a shore dive but does make an easy boat dive. read more →
