Diving in Gulen
When to go to Gulen
Norway is known for its cold waters even in summer. Though it is not a problem for divers who come here to explore the Norwegian underwater life. The best time to dive is in spring, summer and autumn. The water temperatures range from an average of 15C/59F in August down to 5C/41F in March. Spring is a good time to observe colorful nudibranchs and an abundance of algae and fish.

Gulen is bound by the Fensfjord on the south with the North Sea to the west. As well as most Norwegian towns, Gulen has some incredible nature sites, including mountains, fjords and lakes. Its coastline offers good opportunities for divers and features wreck diving, walls, rocks, kelp forest, soft coral reefs, various marine life and excellent macro diving. Coming here divers can expect to see plenty of fish, crustaceans, nudibranchs, echinoderms, anemones, cup coral, octopus, squid, bryozoans, clams and mussels, sea snails, jellyfish, hydroids and sea squirts. Among popular wrecks near Gulen, the 122m/400ft-long Frankenwald is the most interesting one. This German ship sank after hitting a reef in 1940 and today the wreck is well-preserved and covered with anemones. Another well-known wreck dive features twin wrecks of Ferndale and Parat. Gulen’s house reef is famous for its diverse marine life and a nudibranch safari that is held each March. The Troll Wall is a drop-off that starts well above the surface and goes down to 45m/147ft. The site is full of large pink and little white anemones. The best way to get to Gulen is to fly to Bergen and arrange some sort of transportation from there.
