Sitting very close to the Jacquin II is the Wheel House, an all-metal structure removed from an ex-Coaster. Lying in just 19m of water, the Wheel House offers those with overhead training the opportunity to penetrate through into the inside the structure via open doors on either side. Entering the Wheel House via the port (left) side door can be a squeeze so it's recommended that, if you do intent to penetrate the Wheel House, you enter via the opposite side.
The inside of the Wheel House is split into two levels with the lower level being open to the quarry floor. As a result, it's recommended that you stay mid water in order to minimize the chances of kicking up silt. Toward the front of the wheel house you'll find a raised level which can be dropped onto without reducing visibility.
Also worth checking out during your dive on the Wheel House is the roof of the structure complete with a small smoke stack. The roof of the Wheel House offers an ideal platform for training and even features a hand rail which helps to contain activities within the confines of the roof area. With a shot line tied off to its front, the Wheel House provides a surprisingly ideal location for diver training as well as being an intriguing dive attraction in itself.
