The 3500 ton Clan Stuart, a British turret steamer, sank during a storm in November 1914. The wreck is close to shore and easily accessible, approximately 4km from the Fish Hoek traffic circle on the Simon's Town Road.
This is a restricted area and permission to dive this wreck must be obtained from the Naval Headquarters at Simon's Town. Entry and exits points are uncomplicated, followed by a short 50m swim towards the ship's engine block which can be seen protruding from the sea.
What makes this dive great is the shallow depth which allows plenty of sunlight to penetrate and illuminate the dense marine growth, which attracts a variety of fish. The site is ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling and suitable for all levels of diver.
