Images from Sveggvika

The Scubapixel database has been updated with 60+ images, many of the from a trip to Sveggvika Dive Resort in August 2012. The area offers great diving - have a look here!

Posted on Apr 10, 2013

The PADI resort at Sveggvika opened in 2011, and I was invited to join the editor of Dykking magazine on a press trip to check out both facilities and diving.

The area just west of Kristiansund offers some great diving opportunities. Huge kelp forests, soft coral reefs, a teeming fish and invertebrate life and even some great wrecks.

Located at the waterfront, Sveggvika Dive Resort offers great diving in the nearby area. Kelp forest, wrecks and marine life is reached by short boat trips - and they even have a great house reef.

I have added around 40 images from this trip to the database, and as usual they can be found using numerous search tags. The easiest is however to use this link:

The resort is run by Jaanus Relo and his girlfriend Anette, and they offer acommodation, kayaking and other activites in addition to diving.

Here is a video they posted on YouTube in April 2011:

The local newspaper Tidens Krav stopped by to make a story while we were there, and their sporty journalist even took the time to take a Discover Scuba class.

Here is the article they published a few days later, using my underwater images:

Sveggvika Dive Resort is located just west of Kristiansund, and is easy to reach by car through the new undersea tunnel from the city.
