K17 Submarine dive

HMS K17 Submarine

A few members of Dundee Sub Aqua Club and Fife Renegades diving the wreck of the K17 Submarine.

K17 was sunk on 31 January 1918 during the night time fleet exercises later known as the Battle of May Island when she was attached to the 13th Submarine Flotilla. HMS Fearless ploughed into K17 at the head of a line of submarines. It now sits broken in two in around 54 meters.

Here’s a couple of videos of the dive, one by me and the other by Peter Keelan. We cross paths near the props.





About JamesL

I was instantly hooked on diving after doing a Trydive with DSAC in Sep 2009 and have loved diving all over Scotland ever since. I have always had a keen interest in marine biology and more recently underwater photography which allows me to record and ID the huge variety of life to be found in Scottish waters.
