DIVING SOUTH FUNEN
Christiansminde offers some unique setting for divers. Whether you are an enthusiast or professional, the hotel’s doors open for a stay in the shallows with direct access to the jetty and the beautiful sound.
In October 2014, the old Ærøsund ferry sunk in the strait and awaits a unique day trip for any diver to explore the artificial reef created by the sinking of the ferry. You’ll find a map of the ferry’s position here. TV2 Fyn covered the ferry’s last journey to the seabed, a story that you can revisit here.
In Christiansminde there is also ample opportunity to enjoy a nice experience with diving. With 20 meters down to the Sound, you are quickly started to experience the stunning area. It has historically made many finds from the 2nd World War, after the German occupation troops withdrew Christiansminde Badehotel during the war and docked with the Kriegsmarine here.
There are sometimes strong currents in Svendborg, however, can avoid the worst by studying the tide table before a dive trip.
