Scuba Diving in Clan Ranald Wreck, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia

Maximum depth:
68.8ft/21m
Skill level:
Advanced
As one of the best wreck dives in Yorke Peninsula of South Australia, the Clan Ranald is an important diving destination and tourist asset which forms part of the Investigator Strait Maritime Heritage Trail. The Clan Ranald sank on January 31st, 1909.

After it departed, it overturned from an overload and took the lives of 40 men. The anchor from the ship lies on the cliffs above the wreck. The Clan Ranald has been declared an historic shipwreck under the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976, thus consequently its remains cannot be disturbed without a permit.

The wreck represents also a marvelous asset of the Troubridge Hill Aquatic Reserve declared in 1983 to provide protection to a diverse and unique assemblage of marine flora and fauna. The spot is suitable only for advanced level divers with a maximum depth of 21 m / 68 ft. Practitioners should be advised that there can be strong currents on the spot, so extra cautious needs to be paid.
