In Lithuania, close to the harbor of Klaipeda / Memel lies a huge wreck. The name of the wreck site was “W30”. It looked like it was not identified, or at least we didn’t find any further information.
I managed to capture the whole 80m wreck in just one 65min dive. That was for sure quite a tough job.
After inspecting the wreck and after compare of the remains with ships that sank in that area, it was clear that this would be the school ship CARL ZEISS. It sank during the second world war. It is such a beautiful wreck!
I wrote a survey report. about that wreck. You can find it here: CarlZeiss
This seems to be a sunken fishing vessel. It is about 32m long and not identified yet.
Position: Close to Klaipėda harbor.
