Members of the In2scuba Dive Club, dived the SS Strathclyde from Dover on Saturday 31st October 2009. The wreck was an iron steamship weighing 1951 tons and sits at 30 metres.
Scatted on the sea bed around the wreck we found champagne bottles, perfume bottles, jars of preserves (olives, gooseberries etc) Visibility on the wreck was 6 metres and water temperature was a comfortable 12 degrees!

Everyone has a great time during our Swanage trip in September 2009. We dived the Betsy Anna, Caratan, Kyarra and the Fluer De Lys, all fantastic dives, between 15 - 30 metres.
In2scuba enjoyed a fantastic weeks diving in Malta, Gozo & Comino during June 2009! After a short two & half hour flight from Gatwick, we were on the Island of Malta!
We were transfered from the Airport to our accommodation, which was close to our Dive Centre (Dive Deep Blue) In the morning we got our dive kits sorted out, ready for our first days diving, at Cirkewwa!
Our first dive was on the Tug boat, "Rozi". She is 30 metres long and sits at 34 metres, upright on the seabed.
After the "Rozi" dive, we swam back to the reef at Marfa Point and found the "Madonna Statue" situated in a small cave. For our second dive we stayed at Cirkewwa and dived Cirkewwa Arch & Adrians Reef.
This dive site had various small caves, with swim throughs, and open reefs with sea grass covering the seabed. We had encounters with a Scorpion fish, Moray eels, Groupers, Amberjacks and Barracuda during this dive!
On day two, we dived the "Um El Faroud" a 3.147 ton tanker, measuring 110 metres in length. We spent two dives on the Faroud, as it was just enormous!
The Faroud was a great wreck for enjoying the features on the outside and also penetrating through the inside of the wreck. There are many areas to investigate inside the Faroud, but our favorite was the engine room!
On day three, we dived our favorite dive of the trip, the "Blenheim Bomber" a Second World War Bomber, operating from Malta during 1941-42. The Bristol Blenheim was attacked and shot down after leaving Luqa Airport on 13th December 1941. The wreckage sits at 42 metres, which gives you just enough bottom time to enjoy this breath taking dive!
We then went on to dive "HMS Maori" at St Elmo Bay, a Tribal Class British Destroyer sitting in 15 metres of water. The Maori weighed 1959 tons, with a length of 115 metres sunk in the Grand Harbour while moored on the 12th February 1942
The Maori was a very interesting wreck to dive, as you can dive around the wreckage or penetrate inside. There is still live ammunition on the wreckage and plenty of marine life to enjoy! Due to the shallow depth of this dive, it is a great dive for most entry level divers.
On day four we travelled over to the Island of Gozo, where we completed two dives. The first being the "Blue Hole" & "Coral Caves" and then onto the "Inland Sea" for our second dive!
The "Blue Hole" and the "Azure Window", are rated as Top Ten dives in the World, and you can see why!
The "Blue Hole" & "Inland Sea" have attractive features, even on the surface!
The "Coral Caves" are absolutely stunning, with hard corals covering the entire cave!
On day five we dived the "MV Imperial Eagle" & the "Statue of Christ", both situated next to each other at Qawra Point. The Imperial Eagle was used by the Royal & US navys, then ended her working days as a ferry between Malta & gozo until the mid 1970`s.
Our next dive was at "Comino Caves", an exciting dive offering a network of Caverns & Caves.
Outside the caves the dive guide feeds the fish. They come from everywhere and enjoy afternoon lunch!
Our last dive was on the German Patrol Boat "P29", a great wreck dive for diving on the outside and as a penetration dive. The P29 lies in 38 metres of water, weighs 360 tons and is 52 metres in length.
We enjoyed all the fantastic Wrecks & Caves Malta & Gozo had to offer, but we also enjoyed the amazing marine life that we saw too!
In2scuba had a fantastic trip and we look forward to the next one. Thanks to all at Dive Deep Blue for looking after us so well!

In May 2009, In2scuba went off to Swanage for our regular Wreck & Drift diving long weekend.
