Shetland offers some of the best recreational scuba diving in the UK, with average vis at 10m, with up to 25m being reported on certain dives. Wrecks tend to be more intact the deeper you go, so a firm favourite is the Glenisla at 45m to the seabed. Life on the wrecks is stunning, with lumpsuckers, angler fish, shoals of pollack, butterfish and the occasional conger peering out of a hole enough to keep anyone happy. Nudibranches are also very common on the wrecks, a macro photographers dream! Cetaceans are common here, with Minke, Orca, Risso’s Dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins, Porpoises and White Sided Dolphins being the most common.
