Gold Coast Dive Centre is proud to visit this Iconic site where the Scottish Prince vessel has sunk many years ago, as a local/tourist attraction is an unforgettable experience not to be missed for any scuba diver that wants to explore the unknown a bit further. More history information below.
The hull of The Scottish Prince lies in 10 metres of water near the Southport Spit providing a fascinating wreck dive on the Gold Coast.
In 1887, "The Scottish Prince", a 3 steel-masted iron barque 64 metres long, sank as she was sailing from Glasgow, Scotland to Brisbane with a cargo of whiskey, mousetraps, linen and other assorted cargo. Only the hull remains and is covered with soft corals and sponges, and is a haven for crayfish, Shovelnose rays, Leopard and wobbegong sharks, and other tropical fish. The wreck is protected under the Commonwealth Historic Shipwreck Act.
