Scuba Diving in Ex-HMAS Hobart Wreck, Adelaide, South Australia Australia
The metropolitan area of Adelaide is famous for the variety and great number of diving sites it has to offer (you can visit here some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world). The waters have the perfect temperature for scuba diving (warm during the summer and crystal clear during the winter), and are generally friendly and uncrowded. One of the most exciting and popular diving experiences in the whole country is the The Ex HMAS Hobart Wreck.
It was a 130 m/426 ft long guided missile destroyer that was purposely sunk in 2002, in order to create an artificial reef. The wreck lies at 30 m/98 ft below the sea level, but its tower is clearly visible from the surface at a depth of 8 m/26 ft. Divers have access to 90.000 m²/9 ha (bridge area, mess decks, gun turrets, captain’s quarters). It is the only shipwreck in the whole world, where you can penetrate the engine room! The marine life in the area is extraordinary. The spot is addressed to advanced divers.
Average viz: 15 m/49 ft. Maximum depth: 30 m/98 ft.
