HMS Elk

A great little wreck, originally a fishing vessel hired by the Royal Navy in 1939 and sank in 1940 when she hit a mine.

She is in good condition for her age and always covered in masses of marine life, notably large shoals of bib..

She lies in 30-35m on the edge of a reef which makes here quite difficult to find and in an area where surface traffic is heavy check shipping movements before diving.

One of my favourites- don't miss it.
