Hi Pieter - As far as I know while here it has never been used for accommodation off any type and not a dive centre, occasionally a small boat would be along side, just to check it i think and as far as I know no plans to move or scrap it - a lot off local rummers !!!!

Will this be the end of the old fiord ferry SOGNEFJORD? She still has the colors of the original Norwegian company Sogn og Fjordane (now Fjord1) on the bow. Laidup here since 2008, but in use as hotel or diving accomodation or what? Any info aprreciated.
