Dive Sites in Western Norway

The west coast of Norway has some world class diving. It is also a place of great scenic beauty. With thousands of miles of sheltered coastline, intact wrecks, warm summers, and few other divers, Norway makes a wonderful location for a diving holiday. This website contains details of almost 200 wreck and scenic sites from Stavanger to Ålesund.   You can access the information via a series of clickable maps or you can select from an alphabetical list. There is also a section giving advice about diving in Norway.
