Nice catch Mort :-)

I am diving on the HMAS Perth, near Albany, in May. Its amazing to see these old girls underwater and then look at pics of them in their prime 8-)

Great pictures!
But the HMAS Swan is supposed to have been scrapped, not sunk!? Says wikipedia anyways.

Believe your eyes. Scrapped is an open term, which could include being sunk for rec diving

I hope they didn't do it the "Italian way", filled to the brim with poisonous industrial waste. :mrgreen:

Great pics! Makes me want to reconsider learning to dive...like I can afford another expensive hobby right now!

Once the casa is paid off I might consider it but the desire to get my rotary wing license is still present after 30 years of want, too. If only I had won the Powerball or had just had the fortune to be popped out of a more wealthy vagina... :shock: :o

Diving those wrecks looks like more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, I really miss diving. The per usual awesome pics.

Cool stuff as usual.



Here's a pic of my most recent dive. The wrecks are all inside.

What's the feeling of being up close and personal with these once magnificent ships, which are now pieces of history? I've never tried wreck diving before so I'm mighty interested to know how does it feel to explore these ships as they lie on their underwater graveyards.
