The Claris is a wreck dive located around 8km off Glenelg.

The story behind the Claris is a bit of a mystery as two small vessels lie close to each other in approximately 28 meters of water. The smaller, less intact vessel is widely consindered to be the Claris – mostly a field of debris – while the other wreck appears to be a half cabin cruiser. This unknown vessel is around 25m to the west of the Claris, and just covered in the Carijoa (genus) soft corals that look like starry white christmas trees.

The site is usually proliffic with aquatic life including bullseyes, old wives and leatherjackets.

Best dived when winds are easterly (offshore).
