The Wreck is a charming dive site boasting an abundance of marine life. The ferry was intentionally sunk in 2000 and was converted into an artificial reef for diving. All the hazards were removed from the wreck, and divers can enjoy safe and easy diving at this site. However it is not advisable to penetrate the boat--it is risky due to the silt accumulation in the narrow channels.
