Diving off the Yorkshire Coast

19th July 2016

The Yorkshire Coast has it's fair share of ship wrecks but what's it like to dive down to one of these wrecks?

This video taken on a dive in July 2016 visits the wreck of the SS Florentia.

Built in Whitby in 1912 the Florentia was a steam powered coal cargo ship.

It sank in June 1918 after being hit by a torpedo, two miles off the coast of Robin Hood's Bay.

Three men died after a lifeboat capsized, the rest of the crew were rescued by an escort trawler and landed at Scarborough.
