Scuba diving at Hustadvika - Strømsholmen Sjøsportsenter

Hustadvika, with its multitude of wrecks and its rich flora and fauna, is a diver's paradise. Underwater visibility of 40 to 60 metres is not unusual in the winter, and visibility is generally good all year round. Strømsholmen Sea Sports Centre is situated near the Atlantic Road, has a diving equipment rental service and organises guided boat trips, diving courses, and airfills.

The Atlantic Road

"The Atlantic Road meanders at the ocean’s edge, from island to island, across bridges and rock-fills. There are numerous attractive picnic areas where you can park to get even closer to the waves – a few steps and you can also cast a fishing line, if you wish. There are some excellent fishing spots. A stone’s throw to the west the shipping lane crosses Hustadvika, a notorious stretch of open sea. Many shipwrecks rest on the seafloor here.
