Scuba diving in Alma Jane Wreck
The Alma Jane, formerly a Japanese 60-ton cargo ship, was stripped of dangerous objects and then scuttled in 2003 (though now structure is falling apart). Today the Alma Jane sits upright on the sandy bottom, providing a perfect artificial reef for a great swim-through with its wide beam and deep draft. The helm of the vessel can be found lying on the deck, divers can explore her upper decks and enter the wheelhouse and cargo holds below deck.
When to go
Diving is possible throughout the year with water temperature fluctuating between 23-29C/73-84F.
What to see
The wreck is home to soft corals and colorful reef fish. A mast and beams of the main decks are clad in hard and soft corals with several small gorgonian fans growing nearby. Sweetlips, rabbitfish, snappers, giant lionfish and batfish can always be found, as well as scorpionfish which can be seen outside walls of the vessel. There are plenty of critters hiding among the debris such as ghost pipefish, puffer fish, nudibranchs and a large variety of shrimps.
