The Salem Express was a 100m/328ft long passenger and vehicle ferry that sank in 1991. Propellers, corridors, upper decks, the restaurant and the bridge can all still be seen. Passenger luggage such as rolls of carpet, stereos, bicycles and chairs can all be found in and near the wreck. Coral coverage and marine life is good enough here. The site is suitable for divers of all experience levels as the top of the wreck is located at only 10m/32ft of depth.
