For many people, divng is not an option. But many love wreck stories, and as I have said many times in this website, our bit of coast is littered with the rusting remains of hundreds of shipwrecks, many of which you can walk along the coast too. Quite often the walk itself will be stunning as I don't think there is a better bit of coastal scenery any where in England, and usually there is a good pub in the offing.
Many of the wrecks can be seen at low water, but occassionally, if the story is really good, then just going to the place to see the area the ship went down is often enough.
I often warn people to check the tide tables befor they go on the coast walks. But who compiled them? Check out William Huchinson, the Tide Man.
The walks come with detailed maps, and a description of the best pub, if there is one nearby.
