VIDEO: Latest Boat Stories film follows dive team from Ilfracombe
The latest short film in the Boat Stories series explores the diving environment off the coast of Ilfracombe, on the doorstep of our holiday parks in Devon.
Titled “Every Dive Is An Adventure”, after an inspiring quote from ILFSAC Chairman Shaun Galliver, the film follows members of Ilfracombe Sub Aqua Club and Seasearch as they explore the marine life and historic wrecks around our coastline.
Ilfracombe is captured beautifully in opening scenes as the boat leaves the harbour – who knows, you might have even been down at the harbour during your Devon holidays?
The 5 minute film shows off North Devon’s marine life wonderfully, and in some shots the colourful array of sea anemones paints an exotic picture.
Shaun added: “Around 1910 Cardiff was one of the world's busiest ports and in one year 13 million tonnes of coal or 300 ships a day travelled past Ilfracombe.”
“Many of those either hit rocks or hit each other so we still have a lot of undiscovered wrecks here, we found four last year and even last week we dived two new ones.”
