It's been far too long since i have been over to the Clyde and met up with Elane Watt owner skipper of the Clutha dive boat. But last Saturday i managed to make my way over to inverkip marina and set out to dive the Wallachia and the Akka. this was great as these are my two favourite wrecks in this part of the Clyde. The weather was fantastic with bright sunshine and calm seas. First up was the Wallachia and i enjoyed a really good dive on her remains. The vis deteriorated once divers were down on the wreck but this is one of the best wrecks in the Clyde. i had a look at the engine block and noted that the bridge is now completely collapsed. The Akka was up next and this turned out to be the best dive of the day. Vis was very good and it made for easy exploration and good photographs. I can honestly say that this was my best dive on this wreck. It was great being back diving on the Clyde wrecks as they are superb and i had not realised how much i missed diving them and meeting up with my pals in the west.
Thanks to Elaine, Neil and Martin.
