Sunk to protect the entrance of Scapa Flow from enemy submarines, the Tabarka now rests in the strong tides of Burra Sound. The fast current nourishes a rich array of fascinating life that plasters the sides of the wreck with a riot of colour and adds excitement to a dive that explores this unturned ship.
The Tabarka remains in divers’ memories long after they leave the water and becomes the subject of many tall fireside tales that grow longer with the telling!
Even though this wreck is in Scapa Flow, if you want to dive wrecks with me in the beautiful Pembrokeshire waters, feel free to join our dive club called BSAC Scavenger Dive Boat Club. Also, find us on Facebook here.
