Liveaboard diving in
This is a wreck dive. Tauntine was a small boat that sank and spent a long time on the sea floor. Divers can still see some parts of it overgrown with corals and lying within short distance from each other. Currents are quite strong in this area which adds to the process of deterioration of the site. The bridge has pretty much completely disappeared, the crane is flat and the sea continues to devour the rest of the wreckage. Inside and around the site a wide variety of fauna and flora can be observed. Divers can spot a variety of congers, sardines, morays, red scorpion fish, lobsters and other creatures. Because of the strong currents this location is recommended for advanced divers only.
