HMS Jersey (F72) is World War II wreckage in Malta. HMS Jersey was a British J-class destroyer, about 109 m in length with a beam of 11 m. Jersey struck a mine in May 1941 at the entrance to Grand Harbour of Valletta when returning from a mission and sank next to the breakwater. The wreck was blocking the harbour entrance for several days. After clearance work there are only scattered remains left of HMS Jersey wreck between the breakwater arms. The maximum depth of the wreckage is 19 m and there is nothing else interesting on this dive site.
