Plymouth Scuba Diving: Submerged Productions
What’s this website about?
My name’s Peter Mitchell. For the last 40 years I’ve been a keen scuba diver. During the last 20 years I’ve published several books and DVDs describing the histories and locations of various shipwrecks around the coast of Devon, England. (Have a look at the book and DVD covers to your right for more details).
submerged.co.uk is designed to showcase some of the best bits from the books and be a useful archive of maritime shipwreck history, both for the Devon coast and elsewhere around the world.

There are hundreds of shipwrecks off the Devon coast – this section contains a selection of articles about individual wrecks detailing the history and fate of the ship along with the all-important contemporary dive experience. All of these articles come from The Wrecker’s Guide To South West Devon Volumes One and Two.
Devon is not the only diving fruit. Here are in-depth reports about expeditions to shipwreck diver’s paradises – Scotland’s Scapa Flow, where the World War One German naval fleet was scuttled ; and Micronesia’s Truk Lagoon, last resting place of the Japanese WWII fleet.
